Take no notice of bad reviews. This place is awesome... Mel and Jake are the nicest and most genuine people I have met and would go well out of their way to help you, which they did. The rooms are tidy clean and cool (somewhat of a necessity) when you need a bed for the night stay here. This place... More

Really great hostel. Very chilled, clean and great staff. The manager- Jake helped me book my skydive and then even edited my DVD so I could upload the free fall onto facebook. Would definitely recommend if looking for somewhere in mission beach!

I stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. Right from the moment you get to reception the staff are so friendly and welcoming, even offering us a drink of water. It's only a couple of minutes walk from the greyhound stop which is always handy. The hostel itself was lovely and clean and looked as if it was... More

I stayed in Absolute Backpackers for two nights and had excellent rest both nights. The backpackers is only about 300m down the road from the greyhound bus stop, but the hostel always sends a member of staff to the bus stop to welcome the new arrivals. The staff were lovely and chatty, obviously encouraging people to do a skydive (thats... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my friend. This hostel is very clean, they have staff cleaning and helping everyday. The ladys toilet had flowers, pretty shells and a real towel to dry your hands on which gave it a homely touch. Our room was cleaned daily and blankets were available if needed. The best thing about this hostel... More

I stayed at Absolute Backpackers for 3 nights, but could definitely have stayed much longer. Mel, Jake and the other staff are the best, the personal touch they bring made my stay so lovely. The rooms are clean, with good matrasses and free a/c, there is fast, free wifi available, but most important to me, the place is CLEAN! Definitely... More

I only stayed at Absolute Backpackers for one night but I really wish I had stayed longer. It is a great place to relax and only a short walking distance from the beach. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hostel even offered $10 meal vouchers for a pizza and beer in the resort opposite which was a great... More
