Staff at first were friendly and helpful, until I met the man on the night duty who spoke to you like you were three when we didn't know the door code, unfortunately to know there was a code to the door we would have needed to be told. It seemed like ringing the bell at 9:24 was too much effort... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3nights and it was the best backpackers by far. It was clean, we got a double bed because we were a couple, rooms were spacious. The location was great for the town and it has its own private walkway to the beach from the back garden area. I could not fault this backpackers.... More

This is a nice hostel, and as they say, it's right on the beach and not far from The Pass (famous surfing spot). As other's have mentioned it did seem to be a bit clique-y, but I guess that's bound to happen when you have groups of people who stay for quite awhile. I was lucky enough to have some... More

Stayed at backpackers February 2015 for 4 nights. On the whole, everything was really good- staff helpful, kitchen/bathrooms clean, ideal location and always lots going on. The issue that I found was when I checked in, I arrived in my room to the horror or sharing with 2 men who I would say we're both over the age of 50.... More

This hostel has everything you need...except free WiFi which can be annoying. I really loved the organised events that they put on to local bars...you get some really good deals. It did have a bit of a clique-y vibe but the beds were comfy, the kitchen comprehensive and the bathrooms fine.

I really liked this hostel. The bathrooms and rooms were clean which is the main thing that I worry about when staying in hostels. The kitchen was also kept clean and there was plenty of space for cooking. The communal areas were chilled and staff were very friendly. There was plenty going on in the hostel but everybody was respectful... More

We ended up in Byron needing a place to stay for the night. The guy behind reception was friendly and explained there was a double bed free in a dorm room. He said we could have a look around the place first. So we booked the night, the room was nice, bed clean and big fan on the ceiling plus... More
