Management where particularly very helpful and we felt like members of the family. Not to mention the clean happy and relaxed environment. It was a great 3weeks spent in such a beautiful place.

I've loved stayed here. Insanely clean, comfy beds, big kitchen always clean, relaxing swimming pool , big tv room, perfect location close to shops, bars and greyhound bus stop. Mission beach is the best spot if u are planning to do your skydive. The staff and managers were really kind and friendly. Lots of deal for trips in the rainforest... More

Absolute backpackers is a great place to chillout after a time of busy travels. The location is really good (5 minutes to the beach&less to supermarket), staff is superfriendly and help whenever you need advice about stuff to do. Kitchen and bathroom are really clean and the cosy tv room really makes you feel at home, as well as flowers... More

The weather was crap - nothing to do about that The Staff and Managers are Tops! We had a family style sit down dinner where everyone made and shared a dish - never felt so at home while travelling!! Kitchen is massive and clean - best place I have ever stayed

The most uncomfortable bed I've slept in at any hostel in 6 months travelling in Australia. The kitchen and toilets might have been very clean but were clearly compensating for the lack of anything to do. The staff were very pleasant, however the managers were rude, sarcastic, and the fake laughter from one of the managers was rather annoying to... More

This hostel was suitable for just the one night we were there but not much else. It wasn't dirty but it also wasn't clean and the bedroom had ants. The owners were also quite rude to everyone - we overheard the lady tell some American girls to 'get a sense if humour and that Americans are uptight' because they hadn't... More

I really loved the laid back vibes of this hostel... add in brilliant staff, clean accommodation and fun organised trips/activities and you have one brilliant hostel. This was by far one of the best hostels that I stayed at during my three month backpacking trip. it's located so close to the greyhound bus stop that you can walk within a... More
