Unfortunately cleanliness for me is major and the hostel is very dirty. Not only the kitchen, but also the bedroom. There is no air conditioning and the bedroom was so warm that sometimes it was really hard to sleep! Also you have to pay to get plates (they give you the money back after using it, but is very inconvenient.... More

I stayed in Cape Byron YHA for 3 nights and although i had to change room every day due to my late booking, i didn't mind because they were really helpful. It has free wifi on the living room, a quiet swimming pool and clean facilities. Maybe they close the kitchen too early (22.00) but you just have to bear... More

I stayed at Cape Byron YHA with a friend for three nights. Todd and Joel on reception were great - very friendly, gave great tips on where to go etc and the free lighthouse tour was a highlight of our trip to Australia! Would thoroughly recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Byron - clean, comfy, good mix of people... More

I did their free lighthouse walk with a friend who stayed at the YHA. Todd was great and although the day was really hot and sunny he made the walk interesting and fun! Definitely a must if you come to Byron! We saw dolphins, a wallaby, a turtle and got lots of info about Byron. We even got to see... More

Some small differences; cape has free wifi in de common Area and free bycicles and it's closer to the beach (carry less with your surfboard). The staff was amazing, Stephen you are awesome. And the walking Tour on friday is definitly worth... More

I really enjoyed my stay there. Close to the beach and no noise at night. Free Wifi is definetely a big pro and I liked the fact, that the beds are really stable and do not swing, unlike many other hostels. Especially I want to thank Stephen, who was a great help with planning my further travels, even though I... More

As many yha this hostel was well organised. It was very local only a 10 minute walk from the bus terminal on arrival we were greeted by staff explaining everything about the site and hostel and that they held a free walking tour. The room was clean and spacious enough even though there was 10 girls in there. The bathrooms... More
