This place has an amazing location: right in the center of town, but in a backstreet away from traffic. The rooms and bathrooms were really modern and clean, and they have a really nice courtyard area for hanging out. My only complaint would be the noise! The rooms are in close proximity to each other, and we were woken by... More

I kept trying to imagine how many people were staying here. A definite industrial feel in the hallways and the kitchen. Reminded me of unovwrsity dorms in the 80s. Staff definitely geared to the backpackers. This backpacker's mother felt a little conspicuous. Got a rickety bike for a morning ride on the beach. So easy to get around tiny Byron,... More

Loved this hostel. It was clean and in a great location, right next to an aldi! The staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely the best hostel of my east coast trip! I was in room 101, no problems with the room. Free wifi in reception a big plus. Kitchen was large and well equipped and seemed clean most of the... More

I had a private room here - ensuite, flat screen tv, king size bed... Flash packers! Oh & undercover secure parking. Easy walk to every as located in centre of town. It's position in a lane made it quieter than some I'd stayed in. Would recommend this for couples or friends looking for a cost effective yet nice place to... More

The location of the hostel was perfect, aldi was just behind it, clubs up the road and beach 2 minute walk. The people that worked there were really friendly. The kitchen was clean, but difficult to use the stoves as they took so long to heat up and was small for the amount of people staying. It was also a... More

Epic hostel - massive outdoor chill out area with a couple of spa pools. Room was spacious, clean and had a balcony. Hostel activities everyday and night. Staff were awesome and really looked after us! Thank you!

I just checked in and my room wreeks of weed not impressed. The lounge area is very dirty with ripped chairs. I would definitely avoid this hostel as their are much better ones in a 50m radius. No idea how they won an award clearly they have gone down hill

The value of this place is awesome as you would expect backpackers to be a lower standard than this venue. The room we had was very new, with LCD screen, small view, own toilet/shower and most importantly comfy bed! The staff downstairs are great and knowledgeable of the area and there is plenty to do. Location is great, right in... More

Didn't spend much time in the hostel itself (a large group of friends stayed at a different hostel), but was a decent stay. Location was perfect - 5-10 minute walk to the beach, right off the main strip of bars and restaurants. However, it is down a *slightly* sketchy looking alley. I never ran into any problems, but just a... More
