Amazing place! The staff are so friendly and helpful especially Joel, Todd, Bob and Steve. Hostel is close to everything and has lots of areas to chill and hang out. Best hostel in Byron!! I've met some amazing people here and have booked to return in Jan. LOVE this place!

I can't thank the wonderful staff enough for their kindness and fun -Tod, Bob, and Joel. They made our stay amazing and always helped with things to do. Surfing was great as well as lazying on the beach with a coffee from the cafe next door. There were boogie boards and bikes and trips to the light house and books... More

The people working at Cape Byron was amazing. They were so helpful and friendly and the free guided tour was fantastic! The rooms and bathrooms are pretty basic and the kitchen works fine. The location of the hostel is great and it was so good that they had free bicycles you could borrow. It was also quiet after 11 pm... More

The location, the staff, the facilities and the overall atmosphere could not be beat! One week turned into a much longer stay. You can wake up grab a coffee and check the waves all within 200m of the hostel. The pool area is the best! Could not ask for more, and I may end back up here again. Thanks everyone!

Standard hostel with decent rooms, kitchen, toilets etc. Great location, 2mins from the beach. Highlight of the stay was the free walking tour to the lighthouse through the rainforest and back along the beach. Lots to see including wallabies, dolphins, turtles, stingrays and lizards. Todd the guide was very knowledgable and was good fun along the walk. A must do... More

My friend and I decided to spend a night at this hostel after having read reviews about it, and all of them are true! It is indeed a great hostel! We stayed in the 5 female dorm room. The cleanliness in the room, common room and kitchen was a delight, although the bathrooms could have been cleaner, IMHO. We liked... More
