“An Oasis in a Sea of Bogans!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2007

Wow!!! What a place. I checked in for 2 nights and finally managed to drag myself away 5 weeks later. Stuck in the middle of the rain forest, this place is all about relaxing. Whether its sunning yourself by the pool, floating in the pool taking in the spectacular views of the rain forest, dozing off in a hammock or having a quiet drink in the evening and playing games with the many other like-minded people who come to stay in this piece of paradise. A perfect place to stay for those people who wish to get away from those cheesy, drink-as-much-alcohol-as-possible-before-vomiting, noisy, unfriendly, pretentious hostels that seem to be everywhere down the east coast. The only place to chill on the east coast!!!

  • Liked — The Atmosphere
  • Disliked — The bugs. But hey, you're in the rain forest, what do you expect.
  • Stayed December 2006, travelled solo

Treehouse YHA at Mission Beach (actually in Bingil Bay) and miles away from the Beach is the worst hostel I ever stayed in! It is absolutely filthy, the rooms and pool havent been cleaned in years, and the showers are like something in a third world country. The staff are the most unhelpful, disinterested people I have ever come across. We booked in for one night and rang another hostel at 7.30am in the morning to come and rescue us! For about $5 in the price difference we stayed in the Sanctuary Eco Lodge which was absolutely fabulous. Staff very nice, everything clean and just a really relaxing, chilled out spot!

If you aint botherd about bugs etc then this is the place for you. If you can't handle bugs then ask youself why you are in the rainforest and go and vist a botanical garden in Ipswich instead!!!!
A really cool place,chilled atmosphere,helpful staff,beautiful setting. Full of interesting people such as the nice Turkish man who continued to tell me how difficult it was to stay faithfull whilest away from his missus so would i take him to a bar?...........I escaped to a hammock!!
This place added to my amazing time in Australia.
Cheers
