“Quite nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2010

Got put into a private room as the lady had made a mistake with the booking, which was tiny but a nice change from dorms! Bit of a bug problem, I found a spider in my bed one night and couldn't sleep after that. Bugs also in the kitchen which, being an open to air kitchen, is pretty inevitable. Overall the atmosphere was quite nice and friendly with it being such a small place. The location was really good- right next to the beach and in the middle of "town", if you could call it that. First hostel that I stayed at that recycles!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2010

I have mixed feeling about this place. On the one hand, it was very central (compared to the only other 2 hostels in Mission Beach), had a lovely communal area and a well equipped, clean kitchen. However, we were told that we'd be picked up from where our bus dropped us and we weren't; when we did get there we didn't have the room we'd booked, our room wasn't very nice compared to others we've stayed in and there was a very old, unsafe looking aircon unit. Also, the owner lady told us she often shuts the recption which is annoying if you want advice about trips or an internet card etc At times it was also like living wth your parents and there was only one bathroom which was often occupied. If you want something really quiet then go for this, otherwise I'd stay somewhere else.
