Brilliant hostel, my favourite so far having travelled up from Sydney. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, fully equipped kitchen, clean facilities and bikes and body boards that are completely free to take for the entire day. Tod does a great walking tour which is not to be missed, he spotted dolphins, wallabies and a kookaburra, told us loads of... More

This hostel was just the right mix of things! Fun and chilled out catered to people of all ages. One of the major highlights was the free lighthouse walk with Todd! The walk itself is beautiful and you get to see a different side of Byron. Todd was a great guide showing us the wildlife, local knowledge of the area... More

Free Wi-Fi hotspot in lounge area downstairs, clean kitchen and lovely staff. Did the free lighthouse walk organised by the hostel and would recommend it to everyone. You will get to know and see a lot more then going by yourself. Good food deals throughout the week and perfect location. 5 minute walk to beach and nightlife.

Highly recommend this friendly family run hostel, well organised, great facilities, free bikes, a fabulous free walk to the lighthouse, great dive centre right next door and well positioned to access all the local amenities without the noise factor. Almost on the beach, two minutes to walk up. As an older traveller, I thoroughly enjoyed the week at this hostel,... More

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.
