We came here to get out of the rain for a bit (we'd been camping in national parks etc). We parked our campervan in their carpark and paid $10 per person to park there and use their facilities (free wifi, free breakfast, common area, showers, toilets, kitchen, free bike hire, access to laundry etc). You can also camp with your tent in a little grassy area next to the hostel. Definitely better value than a van park or something like that. We were just going to stay 1 night but ended up staying for 3.

The common area is a really nice, big, open space that overlooks the rainforest and the sea. It's quite beautiful and comfortable with couches and pillows, powerpoints for laptops/mobiles, free BBQ. The free wifi is a big plus. There is a box of board games available and table tennis/kicker downstairs, and book exchange shelves. They had lots of special nights like free wine, $5 pizza & cider etc. There is also a shuttle bus into town as it is a long way to Mission Beach. We had a car anyway so it wasn't a problem.

The kitchen is very well stocked and clean compared to most hostels I've been in. It had more than enough cutlery, plates, pots, pans etc which is more than I can say for many other hostels I've been in. The free breakfast includes a few different cereals, milk, white bread for toast and jams, peanut butter, vegemite etc. There is also coffee and tea available.

The bathrooms were also very clean. The laundry was fine but it was a bit expensive - $4 to do a short wash (only 23 minutes which might not be enough if your clothes are fairly dirty) and then $1 per 8 minutes for the dryer. I had to put in $7 to get my clothes dry, though there is a clothes line outside. I couldn't use it because of the constant rain while I was here.

I would definitely recommend this place, it's one of the best hostels I've been in in Australia. The cleanliness and free wifi were definite highlights.

Room Tip: I camped in the carpark in my campervan so don't know about the rooms. The whole hostel seemed p...

The location is absolutely gorgeous! Provides the best location for relaxation and a short trip from Mission Beach! Make sure you visit South Mission Beach- we made the mistake my first time through not going to South MB and it was definitely different! The staff is great and really cater to each persons traveling style. If you're there on a Tuesday night- do the Aussie BBQ! It was reasonably priced and really good! Breakfast is a typical hostel breakfast- toast and cereal. No complaints here!

It is the perfect place to relax some days. It is located in a very beautiful area far from the town but they have a free shuttle bus to town running very often. The building in itself is good and lovely. nice pool, big common area to relax and chill, very clean, great atmosphere, nice staff... perfect!

Room Tip: They have tents if you want to save some money. I was in a tent for me and it was perfect!

This place is so nice. Not only is it a lovely setting and a very clean atmosphere, but the owner and staff are very nice and helpful. The internet is free, the breakfast is free, the bikes and helmets are free to borrow. They have good priced food, toiletries, and drinks for sale in the reception, a labtop to use, a great kitchen and social area, and pool, and its all set in a tree house kind of building. You'll feel so relaxed and at home here.

Stayed here as the reviews were excellent. And mostly they were right-clean, nice location in the jungle (although very far from any shops). Breakfast offered is great and generous, kitchen great and well stocked. Should have known as soon as we walked in..and techno music was pumping... I'm early 20s... and I thought it was a bit much...and it went...all afternoon.
First night there, noticed that after 11pm those drinking were instructed to go down to "bar"....at ground level, away from the kitchen and dorms...the "bar' is located directly outside the private rooms and ground floor rooms....so when 20 people are partying outside your room (under instruction)...it can be pretty upsetting, especially since you pay more for these rooms! Didn't sleep at all, and staff had joined in..so no help from them either. Nearly cancelled the whole stay, but had already been charged... :( Also, it would be awesome if there were fly wire on the windows!!...so they can be opened for ventilation.
