I was a bit disappointed that the shuttle to the town wasn’t running at this moment. Further all good

It was a good hostel but the backpackers staying there are all farm workers (kind of working hostel) and the environment is not the best for have a few days of holidays in Mission beach. Is also far away from town so if you don't have a car you can't go anywhere apart from the beach that is right next to it. I would recommend staying in any other hostel in town, better good vibes and close to everything as restaurants and bars.

I stayed here for 3 months for the duration of my farm work. I would highly recommend anyone wishing to complete there 88 days or for a short visit to stay in Scotty’s yha. Very friendly staff and the owner Anthea is more than happy to help out with any of your needs.

We had a great stay! Super friendly staff, Check-in and Check-out was easy! We had a lovely airconditioned room with our own bathroom. The facilities were very clean and the atmosphere was super relaxed!

Staff very friendly and helpful . Good hostel if just staying a night or two in mission beach . Hostel is a working hostel so very quiet during the day . Workers keep to themselves so don’t expect any chat . Kitchen is filthy

Not a great spot to stop if you’re on your own. Not a lot to do unless you plan to skydive or you’re a farm worker. Weather wasn’t great so beach wasn’t really an option. Not as good as other YHAs I’ve been to

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS
