Stayed at this hostel with three friends and we all really enjoyed our time here. The staff Joel and Todd was very helpful and welcoming. The free walking tour was amazing, we saw turtles, sting rays and dolphins. The rooms was clean and spacious. Had housekeeping daily. From Sian, Holly, Max and Toby

I stayed in this hostel for 6 nights. Staff was amazingly helpfull, and the free Lighthouse walking tour with Todd was amazing, you surely can't miss this out!! Nice and comfy beds, only at night my room would get a little warm (no aircon only a van). There are lockers available in the rooms, and also free bikes and bodyboards... More

The first thing I check before booking hostels is that they have lockers available. I want to know that I can go out, have a nice time in the city I'm visiting and come back without my valuables having been stolen. Not all hostels have lockers and it seemed most I phoned in Byron Bay didn't. I came across this... More

Really nice place, very chilled atmosphere with friendly staff. Nice and simple. Very clean and fantastic location. The showers are good and the hostel is small enough that you do need to treck for five minutes to get there. Recommend this for the more sensible traveller.
