Arrived at 4:30pm, greeted by a very helpful guy on reception who told me I had an hour to go to the lighthouse for sunset so that was helpful. I had a private room booked, unfortunately was right by the entrance with a gap under the door so noise was a bit of an issue but as it was a... More

I loved my stay in Byron Bay. The rooms were basic but most importantly linen was clean. The toilets and showers were also clean. The kitchen was very big and the common areas were very relaxed. The hostel hire out bikes which I would highly recommend Byron is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Wished we had stayed... More

My new Husband (love saying that) decided we needed a cheap little getaway after the wedding and this was just perfect for us. We stayed in a private room with a bathroom and couldn't have asked for anything more. We hired bikes and spent the day riding around exploring Byron, the Staff were amazing and full of knowledge of the... More

This hostel was really tidy. The kitchen was huge with a lot of space for cooking, storage and prep which was awesome. The eating area is outside but covered and non smoking which is great. I hate smelling smoke while I'm trying to eat. People were enjoying lounging in the sun in hammocks and swinging chairs but mostly keeping to... More

It s a great place to stay. Not far from everything in Byron. Not a "party" backpack, you can have a quiet sleep (but if you want to party you can). Staff is really friendly, everything is very clean. Nice dorms and good bed (for good sleep :) ). Wifi little bit slow but free, private car park

If you're looking to stay at Byron bay, stay here for sure. It's so close to the beach and to the town - not to mention within walking distance of cheeky monkeys. The staff are really friendly, the hostel is clean, and it was a really pleasant environment to be in.

After there being some confusion with the booking of my friends room in this hostel the staff were very accommodating and helpful to make sure they had a place to stay. My partner and I managed to get our room here and due to the confusion they gave us a family room which was bigger than a double room. The... More

The YHA is a great place to stay when passing through Byron. Easy to cook and even easier to make friends. The way they have set it up means you have to talk to people which is great for solo travelers. I wasn't a fan of all the added extras you had to pay. But that's normal in most places.... More

After a few nice days in this hostel one night at 2.30 am I was sleeping, when 3 drunk Ozzies came into the room, one not even a guest and assaulted me. I fended them off and informed the "night guard", who talked to the manager via phone. The manager decided I get a new empty room and the attackers... More

Hi Dave YHA takes guest security really seriously and we are sorry that you had this experience at our hostel. Unfortunately there are sometimes inconsiderate guests. The staff member on duty that night did handle the incident and it was further addressed the following day by the hostel manager. More

I was there last April and really enjoyed my stay. The lounge common area is really good as you can do your internet or chat with other people while sitting on comfy couches. And there's plenty of them! I was expecting a crazy party place but it wasn't that bad, there was a good mix of travellers. My room was... More
