Stayed at Cape Byron YHA with two friends at the start of June and we loved it! A really clean hostel with super friendly & helpful staff. They also offer a really good free walking tour to Cape Byron lighthouse on Tuesday's with Todd who we loved!

You really have to remind yourself that it's free! 100% recommend this hostel, the tour and the $5 BBQ (only stayed two nights too!) Big... More

Great hostel and staff. Included a free walking tour up to the lighthouse. Good atmosphere with a big communal area with a pool and a barbie. Coming back to Byron later this year and will stay here again.

The manager here provides a FREE walking tour up to the lighthouse which takes about 2.5-3 hours. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour so keeps the walk really interesting. Tod knows about the local wildlife and was pointing things out to us along the way. Fab that the hostel provides this for free and he... More

To top things off they have a free walking tour led by Todd. He's a great guide and the tour was both educational and... More
