We stayed at Mission Beach Retreat for two nights at the end of May 2013.
From the moment we got picked up efficiently at the Greyhound Terminal to when we got dropped back there, our stay was brilliant.
We arrived later than planned due to the Greyhound been delayed. Check-in was smooth and we felt very happy with the service from Richard and Anthea.
The main reason we stayed in Mission was because of the skydive we did, so we didn't see much of the town, but on the whole the hostel is in a great location near many bars and restaurants and a great fish and chips place 30 seconds next to the hostel. I'd also recommend Zenbah.
The hostel was clean, probably the cleanest I've stayed at in Australia. The kitchen was pristine, with everyone adhering to the rules, which makes it a better place for everyone.
This is not a party hostel, but instead, smooth and relaxing music is played throughout the day which adds to the whole vibe of the place. We never heard any noise at night, and the room was comfy, clean and cool.
Overall this hostel is brilliant. It is about 4kms from Woolworths, but the hostel runs various shuttle runs throughout the day to coincide with the Greyhound service. And it is situated just a two minute walk to the glorious beach.
If I ever come back to Mission, I'd stay here.
Thanks Richard, Anthea & the team there for a pleasurable stay.
Tom & Natalie.
