I arrived at the Greyhound stop mid afternoon and was greeted by a friendly chap from the hostel, who I had arranged with reception a few days prior to pick me up, after a quick shop in Woolworth's we made our way to the hostel, the driver was great and very informative...

Luke and his staff are friendly and carted me to places I wanted to go. Sooo laid back and close to the beach. Only reason not 5 stars is kitchen area could use a spruce up, maybe just another sink would help. Mission beach is the perfect place to unwind and see a cassowary too! Luke, Good luck with the...

Mission Beach Retreat is exactly what you can expect to find visiting a hostel in a remote beach location. Friendly staff, warm relaxed atmosphere and sooo close to the beach! MBT has a great open plan living/dining area where guests hang out and get to know one another. The manager at the reception desk is very friendly and helpful and... More

Excellent service! Free pick up at greyhound busstation (5min drive). Relaxed and cosy atmosphere. A good vibe in the "livingroom" with a cautch and television to hang out and relax. The rooms are spacious and clean and a clean bathroom. Perfect Location, nearby the supermarkt, 2 min walk to the beach and to all the nice restaurants. Defenately a recommend.

Excellent, relaxing hostel less than a minute walk away from a beautiful 14km long beach. Rooms are clean and tidy with equally impressive bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The hostel is cleaned every day by the friendly staff. It is very well managed and staff are extremely helpful when asking for information, and will even book tours for you.... More
