Lovely stay with 4 of us sharing a room and a little balcony above us with 2 other people, great walking tour to the lighthouse and a great location - just a short walk to the beach:) quiet, friendly atmosphere. Favourite part of the East Coast so far!

Nice hostel with good mostly good facilities, friendly staff & bus pick up from the grey hound. Close to shops & bars & the beach. The free walking tour that is advertised with Todd is a must.. Saw amazing views of Byron, lots of wildlife & was given some great info on Byron.

We've been travelling Australia for some time now and this is definitely the best value for money! Brilliant location, close to both the beach and the town (literally a 2 min walk). The staff are great and the free walking tour with Todd is well worth doing! he's so knowledgable about the area and takes you to the most beautiful... More

Our room wasn't exactly spacious, but the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was always so dirty it made us feel uncomfortable to wash our dishes there. Talking about dishes, you've got to make a 5 dollars deposit to get a set of dishes, and you have to keep it for your stay. That means that you have to take it... More

Stayed at this Hostel for 3 weeks. Very nice atmosphere and good vibes the whole time. Great location. Short walk to the beach and the main street, bus stop, etc. The room was good and it got cleaned every day. Fantastic staff all around - helpful, patient and humorous. Todd you are the man! :) Would definitely stay there again!... More

Hostel was clean and rooms are very spacious. All rooms are located around the swimming pool which gives a nice atmosphere. Also go on the free walking tour from the hostel! We saw heaps of dolphins, turtles, rays and even a shark was swimming around!! So much better with a good guide than walking by yourself!

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!
