Great manager, cool little tours, (saw a Cassowary on one), themed nights like quiz and films nights. Good fun, good vibe, and it was quiet while visited so very relaxing. the one downside is the moody Dutch staff member but thats his problem.

I can not fault this hostel. There is a real focus on the guest from pick up at the bus stop, through check in to the way the place is maintained. You can tell that the team are really passionate about ensuring that guests have the most amazing stay. I am only sorry that the weather wasn't better otherwise I... More

We spent two nights at this hostel and thought it was fine. We had a double room with was small and lacked any furniture other then the bed, so nothing to put/hang your stuff on bar the two hooks near the door. The kitchen is large but when the hostel is full you do struggle to find somewhere to sit... More

This hostel exceeded our expectations. On arrival at the greyhound terminal, we were greeted by a member of staff who led us to the hostel ( only a few hundred meters walk). We were then checked in, given our free allowance of internet and told the activities of the day. The room was clean, having a fan, air con, sink... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The rooms and all common areas are kept very clean. The kitchen is really big and quite well stocked. However, make sure all food is completely sealed or is kept in the fridge otherwise you'll be sharing your food with ants! The staff here were great and really took... More

I went on holiday and stayed here for 7 nights and couldn't have been happier with my decision to stay at Absolute. The staff are amazing, so friendly and knowledgable and always asking how your day was. This hostel is 5 minutes away from a beautiful beach and there is an onsite pool so if relaxing is your thing, it's... More

Stayed here for two nights and loved it! Staff were so friendly and helpful in particular the manager who made sure I had everything and was informed on everything the hostel offered on arrival. Very quiet and 5 minutes from the beach too. They also organised free shuttles into town and free trips to rainforest walks. Clean rooms and bathrooms... More

Without doubt the best hostel my partner and I have stayed in Australia. Great staff, very helpful. Very clean, big kitchen and communal areas. Nice vibe and group of people there would happily go back..

I've stayed in a lot of hostels in Australia and this is by far the best one to date. The grounds are well kept, the facilities and rooms are clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the value for your stay is great. Plenty of wifi is handed out upon check-in; the staff offer free shuttles to the main... More
