Such a chilled out, beautiful hostel. Clean and spacious, beds are super comfy and Mission Beach is beautiful. Definitely recommend staying more than 1 night here as there's a lot more to do in and around mission Beach than you'd think, rafting, waterfalls, reef trips etc. The bar is really fun too with organised activities. The staff are amazingly friendly...

The Jackaroo Treehouse is an awesome place to stay. It's clean, nice common area and the location is perfect. What else are you looking for, when you're checking in and at the same time you can have a view into the rainforest. The hostel is not in the city but it doesn't matter, because the friendly, well organised staff offers...

I wouldn't give my room 4 stars (not the cleanest or most hygienic) but the rest of the hostel and friendly staff made up for it. Also, I went in other rooms and they seemed much cleaner than mine so this review does not reflect the whole hostel! The pool is the best hostel pool I've used in all of...

I've already stayed 1 month in the jackaroo hostel 7 months ago. As I am traveling down the east coast from cairns I decided to come back to this amazing hostel to stay there for another 3 nights. It's very different than other hostels. You want to go there to experience pure relaxation and nothing else. Very comfortable rooms and...

Don't really understand the rave reviews. Staff were friendly and helpful yes but the fact it was in a rainforest meant copious amounts of bugs which although not the hostels fault were always around whether dead or alive it was like they were never cleaned up. The dorm room was HOTTER THAN THE SUN the ceiling fan did absolutely nothing...

Hi Gilllllll Thanks for the feedback. We are happy to hear our amazing staff were friendly and helpful with anything you needed. When you booked your room you booked a fan room, and not an air conditioned room. If you had mentioned to our friendly staff I am sure they would have helped you in whatever possible way they could...

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. It is very tidy and lovely ran. Our room was cleaned daily and so was the common area. Although the hot temperatures, the common area was quite moderately because of the fans all over the place. The general mood was pretty laid-back not at last because of the friendly and helpful staff....

I absolutely loved this hostel! Nestled in the middle of the tropical rainforest, this was an amazing place to relax and get in touch with nature.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you stay at the Jackaroo Treehouse in Mission Beach, it is an experience like no other. Set in the beautiful world heritage tropical rainforest of Far North Queensland, it is a slice of paradise. Come and experience something out of the ordinary. This beautiful giant treehouse boasts large open living areas, a large commercial kitchen, spacious rooms and a stunning sundeck overlooking the pool area with hammocks and sun lounges. Then, if that’s not enough, a lush green tropical rainforest as a backdrop. Who would have guessed that a treehouse could be so cool! The atmosphere is unmistakably friendly and laid back. You can take a short walk to the pristine Bingil Bay beach, venture out to the Great Barrier Reef for a day of snorkelling or scuba diving, go skydiving in Mission Beach, ride the rapids while white water rafting down the Tully River, hike through the rainforest searching for the elusive Cassowary, or just spend your hours lying by the pool taking in the rays. It’s the perfect place to take a break, or enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. Then, at the end of your day, you can grab an icy cold beer and chill to great beats as the sun sets at the hostel’s very own bar ‘Jack’s Jungle Bar’. So join in the fun, and Get Involved! ... more   less
