Loved my stay in this hostel! Having come from Sydney which I found a little lonely I felt like I was welcomed into a warm family atmosphere when I arrived here. I was collected from the bus stop super early in the morning, my room was not ready but I was offered a shower and baggage storage. Clean common areas... More

We stayed in a 10 bed dorm which was very comfortable and provided a fantastic nights sleep! The communal areas are clean and have a lovely atmosphere. We highly recommend the lighthouse walk with the hostel. The staff are friendly and helpful here!

Awesome location and wicked staff - Todd and the kiwi guy. Great community atmosphere throughout the hostel. Free parking bikes and body boards were also a bonus. BBQ night for $5 was also great and good way to meet others! Would recommend this hostel if your travelling solo or a group!

Loved this hostel. It's friendly fun and happy. Lovely pool and facilities with an awesome free coast walk by Todd where we saw tons of wild animals. They pick you up from the greyhound and also have good free wifi. Todd and Joel were excellent! Only slight negative was the showers were a bit temperamental. Would stay again. Loved it

I've just moved on from Byron and miss it so much, have already recommended staying at this hostel! Staff were dead friendly, the facilities were clean and I met some of the best people there. A lift was always offered as well for nights at cheeky monkeys.. Just had the best time there and Todd was the nicest guy taking... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review... Christmas time is a lot different in Australia to Europe. Some people find it odd to have sun and be at the beach for an Aussie Christmas haha nothing but food, friends, family and relaxing!!! We love giving all our staff the day off on Christmas day its the only... More
