The staff are so friendly and helpful. The hostel has such a relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere that I think makes it suitable for all ages. People are encouraged by staff to be quiet after 11pm so sleep isn't disturbed drastically. Really great location too. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Had a great time here and stayed longer than I had planned because of it. Staff was always helpful and in good spirits. Got to go on a free walking tour lead by Todd from the hostel who had plenty of info for us. Location was close to the beach. Would stay here again

I originally booked to stay at the Cape Byron Yha for 3 nights but extended my stay for an entire week. The hostel is great. I stayed in a 5 share which was a fair size compared to other hostels and was kept very clean. The common room was nice and big and has free wifi. The best part has... More

Hi, the guy on duty ( 40 ish) was friendly, and funny so first impression was great. The room was really pleasant, and at the end of the block so quiet. I would recommend though doing what we did and putting towel over post of pool gate at night so that it doesn't clang loudly whenever someone goes through it... More

Cape Byron YHA is in a great location(2 mins from beach). It has heaps of good amenities (pool, comfy couches, huge kitchen, balcony etc). Rooms are super clean. The hosts Todd and Joel, however make it. They are friendly, know Byron inside out and really, can't do enough for you :-) I can't recommend it enough. Oh and the lighthouse... More

This backpackers was nice, but very over-priced. I've been told this is typical Australian prices ($40 pp for private room), which is high compared to other countries- for example in Osaka, Japan I could rent a hotel room for $40 per night (insane, right?). The facility is nice, there are TVs in the rooms, reception is friendly, etc. However, Byron... More

Hello! Thank you for writing a review we always appreciate people taking the time to do this. It is however a little frustrating as you say that the "Backpackers was nice" But was "over-priced" and these are "typical Australian prices". So I guess you think Australia is expensive which I would have to agree with, however, its not our rooms... More

Noisy, noisy place!!! Full of young party goers (I'm 25 and enjoy drinking but this is young girls screaming and people running past the rooms till late.) The older guy on reception (owner?) is lovely. We didn't get told by staff about hiring plates and cutlery so had to work that one out for ourselves after taking someone else's accidentally.... More

Both our night managers spent a lot of time telling people to... More

Just got back from a trip with the girls. This hostel accommodation was ideal for our needs. Perfect location, free bikes, friendly staff with some good ground rules. Beds were comfy, rooms and amenities were clean. Just a couple of things for improvement, extra toilet paper over the busy weekend nights and a couple of leaky taps. Would definitely stay... More

I loved my time here, the location is ideal and the staff are very friendly. With hostels your experience is always about the people you meet, and I met some great people as shared a lot of laughs and stories. I would definitely recommend this spot based on location, the pool, and the free bike and boogie board hire :)... More
