I've stayed at both YHAs in Byron Bay and this one is a little disappointing compare to the other one. I stayed for 2 nights, great location and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Room, bathroom and kitchen were clean. However, it was really noisy on both nights I was there and I'm talking way past 11pm (as sign... More

This is a must stay in Byron because it is a 2 minute stroll from main beach and 5 minute casual walk into the heart of Bryon. On top of that, the hostel has a little bit of everything. If are looking for a chill place to hang out and relax by the pool or if you are a backpacker... More

A nice atmosphere, with friendly staff. The rooms are a little dated, but are comfortable. However, what makes this hostel stand out is it's staff. The free lighthouse walk is a must, even for the unfit. It's completely worth the climbing to see the vast amount of wildlife. Todd was very enthusiastic, and will be able to point out things...

Arrived in Byron with no booked accommodation, found the yha. Joel was so friendly (& good looking!) hooked us up for two nights. Everyone was so friendly! Great atmosphere, nice pool, bikes to use, close to everything, hassle free parking. Met some great friends. Back next week! Won't stay anywhere else!

Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting a friend in Byron. Great location, right by the beach and close to everything. Really friendly and helpful staff who very kindly collected me from the bus stop. Local owners made planning my days activities effortless as they had an in depth knowledge of the local area. Rooms were of a very high... More

I organised a last minute trip to Byron Bay over the Easter weekend for the Blues Music Festival. Even though it was a hugely busy time with most all accommodation booked out, the staff managed to find me a bed for the whole weekend. Close to the shops but far enough to avoid the noise, I relished the 2min walk... More

This wasn't like any other yha we have stayed in. It was a lot smaller and more dingey hostel like. It was clean and the room was spacious with a TV that had big selection of channels. Wasn't YHA's fault but the noise from fellow stayers were very loud and inconsiderate which was not stopped or spoken about at any... More

Thank you for the Review Annie. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the double room was to your liking. Haha it sounds like you met Rebecca who is new to our staff and works over the weekend.
