Been traveling down the coast and gotta say this is hands down the best hostel that I've stayed in. Shout out to Chris the bus driver who picked me up at the bus stop and gave me a tour showing me all the good spots in town. Then the next day he drove a group of us up to the... More

I enjoyed everyday I stayed, the staff are super friendly and professional at what they do, all bathrooms, the kitchen and our room were always clean and got cleaned everyday. Nice common area outside where you meet lots of new people and make friends. With a hangover after the BBQ on Saturday, you can chill by the pool and enjoy... More

My boyfriend and I (we both are 27-yo backpackers) stayed there for three nights, during a trip all the way up the East Coast. And we loved it. -The staff is super friendly and helpful, they can fix any problem you can have, with a big smile on their face. -The location is awesome, just a five-minute walk from the... More

I headed to Byron for the weekend with a friend of mine from Germany. This Hostel is exactly what I had hoped for. To start off everything is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful and nice. There is also free on site parking which is quite nice. In regards to the atmosphere, I was hoping to show my... More

We stayed in a private room with bathroom. Room was spacious with a big bathroom. It cost 90 bucks per night and 100 on the Saturday. On arrival to Byron, all the hostel vans wait at bus stop for pickups. We had nowhere booked and the guy (can't remember name) sold the hostel to us in minutes. He then took... More

Holiday Village was perfect! I stayed in a 4 bed dorm - it was clean, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you need and the bathrooms were nice and clean as well. There was a really nice pool with some native wildlife chilling on the rocks near it (very cool)! I also really liked the... More

Wow, so first off dont come here during the cold months. Outdoor courtyard concepts you to outside when you leave any room. Shower doors are left open which make them freezing. The hostel rooms themselves are so cold they may as well be directly outside. They have a hostel quiet time after 10:30pm, but it's not enforced and all you... More

We had two beds in a 8 dorm room above the receiption. Our roommates were latinos and it got pretty "fun" in the second night when we were trying to sleep. I liked the hostel because it was clean, the internet was working ok, the kitchen had enough stuff for me, and I like that they give you dishes, sheets... More

Marc W, Manager at Holiday Village Hostel, responded to this review

Haha, I don't normally reply, but this has to be one of the best reviews ever. For so many negative issues, stolen hoodie, lost credit card, 8 share dorm, being woken up every 15 minutes by some one else's alarm from 3am on-wards and you still give a five star rating. I just loved your attitude the morning you left,... More

Such a good hostel! Everywhere so clean and everything you need- shops etc- within 5 minutes away. Only thing about the kitchen is that there isn't an oven. Sunrise tour and sea kayaking seriously worth it. The guys working there are so friendly and helpful, will definitely be coming back!
