Contrary to some of the reviews on here, I find the lodge to be pretty much ideal. If you want a good value place in Byron bay, filled with great people, then here you go. Located 2 minutes from Tallows (arguably the most beautiful beach EVER), and 5 minutes out of town (ideal for a good night's sleep), I think... More

Yes, it's a bit out of town. If you aren't lazy it's no real fuss! If you are, then there is a free shuttle regularly. Seriously though, it's great value considering that (in winter) you get a free pancake, tea and coffee brekkie and free wifi all year round! Room was great (all girls 8 bed, met some great mates!)...

This hostel was my favorite going up the east coast in Aus. There is a laidback feel and everyone I met here was easy to get along with. The only real con is that the hostel is about 15-20 min walk from the township whereas most hostels are 5 min, but they do have a shuttle for you. Free wifi... More

So it is a 15-20 min walk from hostel to the main part of town which is ok if you're not carrying your stuff. There is a shuttle that goes in and out of town almost every hour but it does fill up quick- pick up in town is by the noodle box where all the busses drop off ppl... More

Getting to the beach/center is quite a hike, even though its not to bad to make the lighthouse walk. but at least there is a shuttle. The rooms were quite dark and small. in our room was someone staying for already a month which you could definitely smell… we had to leave at 8:30am (for the bus) so it was... More

Me and a friend stayed at Cape Byron lodge for a week while we were in Byron bay and if it wasn't for the fact we had pre booked our bus in advance we would probably still be there now. Very homely hostel with lots of cool chilled long term residents. Great facility's with free wifi. The perfect place to... More

The hostel itself was good! A little bit older & a bit dark, but the staff were fantastic ! They hired surfboards for very cheap & provided shuttle busses all day! It's location was only real negative for us! It's still only a 10/15 min walk from Byron town , but annoying when you have shopping bags ect.... We would... More

I've stayed here before years ago. I loved it so much that when I came back through Byron I had to come stay here again. I checked in a few weeks ago and haven't left. Having stayed at two other hostels in Byron, I chose to keep coming back to the lodge because it's a smaller hostel where a lot... More
