Hostel was small and cosy. We had a double room which was clean and comfortable (just a little dusty).Staff were very friendly and helpful! Mission Beach is small but a relaxing place to visit. A good selection of cafes and restaurants for such a small place. Zenbah offers $8 backpacker meals which I'd highly recommend - just let them know... More

Stayed here for two nights on our way to Cairns. It's a lovely hostel with a really friendly couple on a reception who are so sweet and happy to help with any problems! They made us feel really welcome. Hostel is a standard hostel but really clean and well organised. Would definitely recommend this place!

Mission beach retreat is by far the best hostel I have stayed in so far on my trip. The managers (jo&mesa) are the most amazing and honest people I have met. The staff are also very friendly and welcoming. The hostel is very clean and well looked after and has a very relaxed atmosphere. The beds are extremely comfortable compared... More

I loved the atmosphere of this tiny, calm hostel, located right at the beach. Best place to just chill out and hang around. There is not much to do in mission beach, but we liked the hostel, the atmosphere and the staff so much that we extended and stayed for four nights.

This is the perfect Hostel for Mission Beach. It was so clean and welcoming. The common area was more like a home with big squishy sofas and big tv. Mesa and Josef are lovely, as were all of the staff. They really made us feel welcome and even booked our skydive for us. The room was lovely and cool and... More

My stay at the YHA in Mission Beach was really the worst during my whole 3 week trip. The hostel is compared to the others I stayed at rather dirty, the staff pretty snobby (exception: the reception), the internet expensive and slow, no way to lock anything etc. I finally left earlier, I had booked 3 nights and left after...
