The hostel was very well located as we come for the surf festival we were very close from all activities. The place is clean and quiet inside. However, maybe it was due to the festival but the population was very young (19) and many of them partied hard. They used to stay after party at the entrance of the hostel... More

We hired a 10-bed dorm for a boys trip and the facilities, staff and atmosphere were great. The bathrooms were clean, the beds were all new and comfortable. Highly recommended for fun bookings with friends.

Stayed in a 10 then an 8 bed dorm, was really good. Nice and clean! My biggest complaint is that there isn't plugs by each bed. We had all the rooms sockets hidden behind 1 bed so it wasn't great to use. We all had adapters so they'd take up 2/3 sockets when there was only enough for 1 each,... More

i spent 11 nights here with another friend and i never wanted to leave. The location is perfect for easy access to the beach and the nightlife. The staff were super fun and helpful. i couldn't recommend this place any higher but the saddest part was leaving all the friends i had made and returning back to melbourne :(

Very clean hostel. Good out door and social area. Hostel is in a great location walking distance to shops, restaurants and beach. Only negative would be that the entertainment area is set up in a way that can be isolating to travellers not in a group, but otherwise this was a really lovely place to spend a couple of days

Do not go off pictures. They were obviously taken when this place was fresh. Spas do not work anymore and have old water in them (other travellers were calling it the Ebola spa) Friday night was a let down after saying there was going to be a DJ and there was no music or entertainment. Don't be fooled by pics... More

Great location in the centre of town. This was one of the most fun hostels I have stayed in. Its more of a party hostel, so if you are wanting peace and quiet this probably isn't the place for you. Facilities are good, no pool, but there are two spas outside and a big kitchen, outdoor/inside area to hang out.... More

I stayed one night in a deluxe room with own bathroom. This place is very close to everything in Byron Bay. The room was clean and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Free parking underneath in the Aldi car park. It was a bit noisy up until 11pm or so but OK after that.
