We stayed on St Paddys day & staff were super friendly and included everyone in a free BBQ and happy hour at local pub - which was great as there's not much to do in mission beach! Our dorm was really lovely, first place we've stayed with two pillows! Amazing! And the bed sheets were all patterned which felt really...

My husband and I arrived at Mission Beach at 10am after being dropped off by the Greyhound. We were greeted by a courtesy pick up who spent the journey giving us a little bit of information about Mission Beach. He also informed us that he does a few trips to the supermarket every day and he would shuttle us back...

I only stayed at the hostel for 1 night but it was really comfortable and in a great location. I was arriving late on the Greyhound, so was not expecting a pickup from them, but they were waiting for me when I arrived! A lovely girl called Natalie gave me an idea of where everything is and what there is...
