This is a nicely placed hostel in the centre of Byron Bay close to the beach. We stayed in a double en- suite room that was comfortable and quiet. It had a fridge and large TV in the room. There is also tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The management is friendly and the free walking tour to... More

Undoubtedly the best hostel in Byron Bay! If you're looking for clean, spacious rooms, great facilities and an experience you will never forget, then Cape Byron YHA is the place to stay. A two minute walk to the beach, private pool and guided walks to the iconic Byron lighthouse are just some of the highlights that this charming hostel has... More

Cheap and cheerful. Staff were above and beyond lovely. Everyone bent over backwards to make it a friendly stay as possible. Rooms were fine and clean. Cleaning girls from Essex were equally as lovely and cute, to boot. Does the job and proximate to the city and beach.

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.
