I loved my stay at Absolute. Clean, comfortable, well-equipped kitchen and super friendly helpful and welcoming staff made my week there a great experience. There are so many activities available. beach is five minutes away and there is a lovely pool area too. Nightly activities are great fun. I highly recommend Absolute, it and it's staff are winners

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

Rooms here a basic, quite small, have air-conditioning, no ensuite, but do have a sink with mirror. Walls are paper-thin and you can hear the bed-squeaking and talking (just usual conversation level) from neighbouring rooms. No views but nice clean grounds with small pool. DIY kitchen facilities only. No food or drink for purchase. Location is across the road from... More

We stayed in a twin share bunk room which was complete with a sink and a nice lot of space for our backpacks. The staff are very helpful and provide a lot of free wifi, more than enough MB for a short stay. Easy shuttle bus runs daily to town and rainforest walks - thank you

Very good hostel with very friendly staff. Rooms are big enough, kitchen is big and clean, free Wi-Fi, free tours almost every day, nice swimming pool area, free BBQ night, skydiving and river rafting tours are close the hostel. You can chill out, relax, walk on the beach or take some of those tours near by. Maybe best hostel in... More

The Hostel is clean, the people are friend the beer at the BWS is cold, the skydiving place is nearby, but most importantly the people are chilled out as all hell. Absolute Backpackers is surrounded by trees, and some animals that give it an extremely chill feeling. Chill is really the best way to describe it relaxed might work as... More
