We were given a good impression before even stopping a night when we were picked up from the bus stop.. The driver gave us a brief tour of Byron bay and upon... More

This hostel is every backpackers dream: friendly, chill atmosphere, literally right on the beach (gate access from the back) and heaps of activities ranging from outdoor cinema nights to BBQ with fire shows and VIP nights in different bars! There is an open backyard with hammocks, hangout areas and a volleyball court. It's impossible not to meet people and make... More

I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights in a private room. Room was very clean & quite spacious. The shared bathroom was always clean and always empty (felt like it was my own private bathroom). We didn't use the kitchen facilities as we ate out both nights but from what we did see, it looked large enough and... More

I stayed 3 nights in a 4 bedroom dorm, it had plenty of space and was one of 4 to have a sweet balcony. Direct beach access. Very comfortable and the atmosphere is perfect for those passing through or staying on a while. Rooms, kitchen and toilets/showers were always clean and plenty of entertainment in the evenings. Regular shuttles into... More

Myself and a friend stayed for one night in a 4 share room on the ground floor; the bunks were comfortable and clean and I was actually quite surprised we didn't have to pay a deposit for sheets/blankets or towels. Paid a small deposit for room key and a locker key (peace of mind going out so we could leave... More

My sister and I stayed for a few nights in a private room. All the staff and other guests were really friendly. Rooms were quiet and although bathrooms were shared, they were clean and accessible. Great beachfront location and short walk to the main parts of town. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

Had a wonderful stay here. The location is great: Right at the beach, with the centre of byron bay within 5 minutes walking distance. Rooms are clean and spacious, as are the bathrooms. Nice kitchen, living room and patio. Would recommend!
