A quieter hostel compared to my previous one (Gilligans in Cairns).Lovely pool.Walking distance from Greyhound bus stop. TV room nice. Free wifi a bonus. Free sausage sizzle one night I was there and a quiz the other night. The only drawback for me was realising too late there was no food on site in the evening and the supermarket was... More

We came to AB With the ambition to travel down the coast. Our travels came to an unexpected halt when we decided at Absolute for a while. First of all the atmosphere is what makes the hostel. Its located right next to the rain forest and the vibe is very "natury". It gets super dark at night and its all... More

This hostel has everything from great staff, constant cleanliness, daily activities suited for everyone, a swimming pool with spa (luxury or what?!) and freebies. I'd really recommend one of the daily walks and if you have time the raging thunder rafting but if not just chill out in this lovely hostel and be taken care of by the staff, a... More

When I got to Absolute, I was greeted by nothing but happy and energetic people, who understood that travelling by yourself you are always looking for a new 'family'. The staff instantly made me feel at home, they were very friendly and I can proudly call many of them my friends. They have activities planned every day and you are... More

Stayed here two nights in mission beach. They offer lots of activities to do (some free as well) the beds have been the most comfortable that I have slept on since been traveling. Stayed in a dorm of 8 and without AC and it wasn't as bad as expected. Very suitable for any backpackers to stay here.

Absolute Backpackers, as the title suggests, is THE place to stay in on your trip to Mission Beach. The staff were incredibly friendly on arrival I was greeted by a lovely fella who worked for them, and he walked back to the hostel with me. which is awesome after a 20 hour bus ride. Checking in was easy and fun... More
