Amazing people and accommodation

Absolute backpackers was the best hostel in the east coast I went so far. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Everything is cleaned, kitchen, rooms, showers and toilets are cleaned twice per day. Kitchen is great and big.
There is a nice swimming pool and garden where you can relax. Free bbq on Sunday.
The hostel is 2 min away from the bus station and 5min away from the beach
I would definitely recommend it to my friends

6 out of 5!!!

Been to Mission a couple of times and the stay at Absolute was by far the best. Can't fault it. Great location, facilities etc etc. The staff were what made the 6th star. I've stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and the professionalism and dedication of the staff were second to none. They went well beyond needed to ensure I was comfortable and well informed of all activities including my new favourite thing, skydiving!!! I took a jump with a company called Altitude and words can't express how spectacular it was!!! But I will leave that raving review for their page. Thankyou to the team at Absolute for giving me another great memory of Mission Beach.

Absolutely Perfect!

Right next to the beach, a short walk away from the skydive centre, and over the road from a supermarket! Perfect location. Lovely member of staff met us from the Greyhound bus stop and walked us over the road to our accommodation (less than a 5 minute walk). Gentleman on reception was a delight, always cheerful and helpful. Greeted us every morning and helped us book our trips. Rooms were perfect for what a backpacker wants. Very clean with brilliant kitchen/ bathroom facilities. Met lots of people at the hostel, great social aspect, without any late night noise! Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay at mission beach!

Welcoming hostel, brilliant for a two-night stay!

We stayed in Mission Beach for two nights and this was the perfect place to stay. It was in close distance to the Greyhound bus stop, a local supermarket and a bistro/bar. Wongaling Beach was also only a short walk away. The hostel was clean and staff were very friendly. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again!

Best hostel i've ever stayed in!

I've loved stayed here. Insanely clean, comfy beds, big kitchen always clean, relaxing swimming pool , big tv room, perfect location close to shops, bars and greyhound bus stop. Mission beach is the best spot if u are planning to do your skydive. The staff and managers were really kind and friendly. Lots of deal for trips in the rainforest and snorkelling. I spent an awesome time there, never wanted to leave. I definitely recommend it!!!!

Busy without being noisy

Bedrooms were spacious and clean, as was the kitchen and all communal areas. It was busy without being noisy, and had a pleasant social atmosphere. The pool was lovely and, importantly, spotless.

The staff were polite, courteous and helpful, offering tips on how best to spend our time. The quizzes and activities they ran in the evening were good fun, and the daily shuttles to different points of interest were great.

Best hostel on the East Coast!

Having just stayed here for 2 nights I can honestly say it has been the best hostel so far on the east coast. the staff are friendliest hostel staff we have come across and the hostel is the cleanest hostel we have stayed in. Woolworths and bottle shop are a 2 minute walk away and the skydive centre is less than a 5 mins walk away. Free wifi for duration of stay is a bonus! I will definitely recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay in mission beach!

If you're travelling alone it can get a little lonely sometimes but as soon as I walked into Absolute everyone was so friendly and made me feel welcome instantly. All the staff were amazing. It's a very relaxed atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. The TV room was a great place for everyone to hangout to beat the heat for a little bit before jumping in the awesome pool. The fridges had plenty of room and there was lots of room to cook!
