Lovely hostel, close to the beach! Lots of different tours to do! Even get a free night if you book your skydive and a free t-shirt. Great value for money rooms and the staff are lovely, will go out of their way for you!

Myself and a friend stayed here for two nights. The only problem we had was our booking was not taken down when we booked the previous week. But luckily the staff where really apologetic and upgraded us to a double room. The hostel was not the cleanest but the staff where fairly friendly and the location was pretty good. The only down side to this hostel was the amount off staff and lack of guest that seemed to be staying there. On one evening there was an argument between certain members off staff that was extremely childish behaviour and did not set a very pleasant mood in the hostel. But this place would have been great with a couple more people as overall it did have a relaxed atmosphere.

Hostel was small and cosy. We had a double room which was clean and comfortable (just a little dusty).Staff were very friendly and helpful! Mission Beach is small but a relaxing place to visit. A good selection of cafes and restaurants for such a small place. Zenbah offers $8 backpacker meals which I'd highly recommend - just let them know you're staying at the hostel. Well worth a visit! :-)

There is not much going on at mission beach but we had a really nice evening together with the staff and other backpapers in a bar next to the mission beach retreat yha. The Staff is really friendly and helpful. Our room, especially the cooking area and the tv area have been really clean and comfortable. The beach is also very nice and so close to the hostel!
And it's the best place to book and do your skydiving! It's an awesome experience! We would definitely stay another time at the mission beach retreat yha, if we're ever in mission beach again!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mission Beach Retreat for 2 nights in a double room. We were looking for somewhere quieter than normal and this hostel was perfect for that. The couple who owned the hostel were extremely friendly the entirity of our stay and even knocked $25 off the price of our room because we booked a skydive through them. The room was clean, spacious, had air conditioning AND a fan. The kitchen area was clean and tidy; with the largest selection of utensils and equipment we'd encountered free of charge or deposit. The shuttle to and from the bus stop eliminates any issues with transport. Would reccomend to anyone looking for a clean, chilled and importantly affordable hostel.
