英語力のない私ですが、スタッフの方は私が理解できるまで、優しく丁寧に説明をしてくれました。 部屋、トイレ、キッチン、シャワー室全て綺麗でした。無料wi-fiもあります。 毎日こちらではイベントがあります。私が泊まった日はlihgthouse周辺へのウォーキングツアーが行われました。(無料です!)スタッフの方の楽しいガイドと共に素敵な時間がすごせました。 私はオーストラリアでいくつかYHAに泊まりましたが、こちらが1番素敵なYHAでした。1人で泊まったため、スタッフとの距離が近いのがとてもよかったです(^-^) 女性1人でも安心して泊まれる所です。 Thank you anyway I really enjoyed my stay

I loved staying in this hostel - super nice staff, clean dorms & bathrooms, free wifi and bikes, beach and shops around the corner, lots of activities on offer.Todd took us on a free 3-hr lighthouse walk which was just great. It's easy to feel at home here. Will definitely come back when I'm in Byron again!

Clean & comfy rooms, fully equipped kitchen, free wifi, sheltered deck-area, cozy TV room and a huge pool that you're probably not going to use as the ocean is only two minutes away. You'll find all this at the Cape Byron YHA, but you'll also find other things that matter even more: great reception, super friendly staff and that all-important... More

This is a nicely placed hostel in the centre of Byron Bay close to the beach. We stayed in a double en- suite room that was comfortable and quiet. It had a fridge and large TV in the room.
