We booked a double room to have some privacy and to rest after a long journey. We had to share a kitchen with a 6 bedroom dorm so we had no privacy. You have to pay a deposit for every plate or fork you need it's a bit of a bother.Noisy hostel . I guess it's a great hostel if... More

Well...where do we start?! -Reception are useless and so unhelpful -no duvet, crockery or cutlery provided, 'kitchen' was useless, no microwave -we specifically asked not to stay in an apartment but that's what we were given when we arrived - so so noisy and dirty, couldn't sleep at all - cleaners are lazy and can't be bothered - have to...

I stayed at this hostel for about 5 months and I'm almost speachless. The environment and the people that you're surrounded with makes you never want to leave and have the time of your life. The staff is genuine, so much fun and caring. There's always something fun going on as pizza night, VIP night and absolutely amazing barbeques with... More

Room was clean and spacious, early check in was very useful. Really good showers, parking on site and great location next to supermarket and 10-15 mins to beach. Wifi only available in reception until 9pm and it was unreliable and slow, reaaaaally noisy until the 10pm curfew and then still quite noisy after that. Long term residents made me feel... More

Holiday Village is one of my favourite hostels on the East Coast. The employees were extremely welcoming and friendly right from the start, and the courtyard picnic table atmosphere makes it easy to meet other travelers if you are solo. The free wifi (in the lobby) and free rentals were a plus. Plenty of things to do, including movie room,... More

Stayed at the village for 5 months and loved it! Free bike and surfboard hire as well as free wifi. Nice and clean rooms/apartments and a big kitchen. BBQ Saturday's are the best night of the week but it's something going on every night. The hostel waterdragons Larry and Django are always hanging around and if you're lucky Larry will... More

Holiday Village has everything you need in a hostel and a LOT more! There is the normal dorm side with a row of tables where everyone gets together to eat and drink or there are the apartments! I stayed there and had my quiet time and went out to the tables to party! But what made it so special was... More

One of my favourite hostels while travelling down the East Coast, directly opposite Cheeky Monkeys (best club in town, known to all backpackers) in Byron Bay. Not as close to the beach as some others but has free bike hire, board hire, pool and sunloungers (not shaded unlike some places) and you have to be pretty lazy not to enjoy... More

4 bed dorms were quite big and had a big window, unfortunately facing a wall. There's a pool, loads of tables to sit outside and a big kitchen. Staff is very nice and gives out free bikes and surf boards for the day. There's also free wifi, but only in the small reception arey, so it can be very crowded,... More
