I stayed in Cape Byron YHA for 5 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms. Got upgraded from 10 share female on 5 share female for same price. Facilities are mostly clean, kitchen is cleaned once on midday and once in the evening. Nice lounge and pool area. Less than five minute walk to the nearest beach access! IMPORTANT:... More

This hostel is so cute, clean, and has a great vibe! The best thing about it, though, is the staff. They're AMAZING!! Every staff member I met was so incredibly helpful and friendly. The hostel is in a great location too! just a few minute walk to the beach and to the main street. There are tons of great shops,... More

Stayed at Cape Byron YHA with two friends at the start of June and we loved it! A really clean hostel with super friendly & helpful staff. They also offer a really good free walking tour to Cape Byron lighthouse on Tuesday's with Todd who we loved!

As above - all you need from start to finish at this hostel. Tod our walking tour guide was very engaging all the way round the 2/3 hour tour up to the lighthouse and back. You really have to remind yourself that it's free! 100% recommend this hostel, the tour and the $5 BBQ (only stayed two nights too!) Big... More

Great hostel and staff. Included a free walking tour up to the lighthouse. Good atmosphere with a big communal area with a pool and a barbie. Coming back to Byron later this year and will stay here again.

As soon as we arrived, Tod the owner was very welcoming. The rooms were decent and the bathrooms were extremely good for a hostel. There is a great communal area to socialise and have a couple of beers. Most noteworthy was the FREE walking tour offered by Tod- by far the best service I've ever received from a hostel (have...

We stayed for a couple of nights last weekend, and had a great stay, hostel was clean and staff were friendly and welcoming, couldn't have been nicer. We checked in on Friday morning and luckily were just in time for a walking tour of the Bay that Todd from the hostel leads. Super lucky timing as the tour was just... More

The manager here provides a FREE walking tour up to the lighthouse which takes about 2.5-3 hours. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour so keeps the walk really interesting. Tod knows about the local wildlife and was pointing things out to us along the way. Fab that the hostel provides this for free and he... More

Cape Byron YHA is a great spot to settle down in Byron. The location is pretty central to everything you would want to do and see in Byron Bay. They have good facilities and great staff. To top things off they have a free walking tour led by Todd. He's a great guide and the tour was both educational and... More
