“Amazing 3 Nights”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had a brilliant time at Jackaroo, we were made to feel very welcome by Jade the manager who was very helpful when helping us book hostels for the remainder of our trip. The Jackaroo was perfect for what we where looking for after several weeks of madness and travelling about day to day we LOVED chilling out for 3 days in the most remote picturesque hostel we have stayed in so far. Not to mention FREE wine night on friday nights, which let me add it really was FREE wine and lots of it!! Overall brill stay with great staff, fantastic free bus to and from the centre. Would highly reccommend Jackaroo to everyone who stays on mission beach especially if your in need of a comfortable bed with a nice pillow!

It's worth the trip to Mission Beach just to stay at the Jackaroo. The hostel sits up high overlooking the rainforest with a swimming pool below where you can easily spend the day lounging. You can take out a bike for free and cruise around the area or talk to the amazing and helpful staff if you want to sign up to go rafting down the Tully River (which is an incredible experience). By the end of your first day you'll have tons of new friends because it's such a chilled out and friendly environment. It's likely you'll stay longer than you originally planned - that happened to me and many other people I met there. Free Wine Friday is exactly as it sounds, the boys (the owners) treat you to wine for the night and you're guaranteed to have a good laugh. No hostel will compare after you've been to the Jackaroo. Have fun!

This is a peace of paradise in the middle of the rainforest. I had a really warm wellcome! They picked me up from the bus stop, drove us to night fishing and to the walking tracks. The view from the terrace is awesome! I really enjoyed my time. Next time I hope I will see one of the great Cassowarries.

Location, location, location.
This place is put on a hill overlooking the rain forest. What more is there to say?
It's a well run, clean and friendly hostel. The way it's constructed gives it's old name The Threehouse a lot of sense. It's just a really nice place to wind down.
It's my third time there (1997,2000,2012) and it might be down to old sentimentality, but I recall the place as being even more chilled and relaxing back in the days when it wasn't taken over by Jackaroo, but maybe I'm just getting old og the crowd's getting younger.
Anyways. It's by far your best option for miles! And it's a really nice option.

Stay here and you will see why everybody extends their stay, often by weeks! Awesome atmosphere, great crew, amazing setting. Being slightly away from the mission beach township works in it's favour as everyone bonds really well and organises things to do together. Jackaroo shuttle buses are always running so it is really easy to get around. If you are in the tropical north, go to Mission Beach and stay at Jackaroo Hostel

What a fantastic place this hostel is. The setting is amazing & the rooms are comfy. Staff are friendly, helpful & make your stay so enjoyable you dont want to go.
Activities are arranged such as fishing & Free Wine Fridays & the guys are in the process of setting an outdoor cinema up. Yes it's in a remote area but there are free bikes to get around on, a really nice cafe 20 min walk away & rides on the minibus down to Mission Beach or Wongaling if you need them. Really cant rate this place high enough & nearly everyone that stays here always adds a day or two on as the place is so chilled out & relaxing to be in. Basic breakfast provided for free which is a bonus for backpackers on a budget. If you are thinking of hitting Mission Beach to do a sky dive or rafting the staff can arrange these too. I urge all savvy backpackers to stay there you wont regret it!

I got picked up at the greyhound stop. And they drive you to the hostel and you go through beautiful rainforest, and when you arrive, the hostel is on a hill in the middle of the rainforest and the view just blow your mind, rainforest all around and the sea in the distance. Just stunning! Clean, good service, friendly good atmosphere.
