We stopped in Byron Bay for one night. The hostel is located very well, just 300 meters from the city centre. The hostel is quite good for couples and solo travellers as well. The guy at the reception was really friendly and helpulf. If I come back in Byron, I will definitely spend my nights there!!!!

I stayed here for two nights. It's in a very convenient location in Byron Bay, a short walk from the main street and the Greyhound bus stop. It's only a few mins walk to the beach too. Rooms and bathrooms/showers were clean. Really nice relaxed outdoor common areas upstairs. Good place to stay in Byron Bay!

The vibe at this YHA is fantastic, everyone seemed very relaxed and the result was a hostel one could happily chill out in. The pool was great and the layout of the hostel was such that all the doors faced inwards creating an open and friendly atmosphere (no anonymous corridors here!) The movie room was comfortable and large with surround... More

Great clean and friendly place to stay. Bit of a walk to the beach, but close to both supermarket and bus stop. Quiet location and with a nice pool and undercover outdoor seating area. Showers and toilets were also very clean, and the card system to get into all areas is a great idea. No aircons in room, but the... More

I stayed here for three nights in a 4 bed all female dorm then switched to a 5 bed dorm. Rooms are clean but DO NOT have air conditioning, they only have a ceiling fan. There was however plenty of places for chilling out and having some space if required. Pool is always handy however the beach is only about... More

The Good Free car parking, good location, decent common areas, friendly staff The Not So Good You will feel old if you are over 25, everyone speaks German so hard to socialise (this is true of most hostels in AU and NZ), small rooms, kitchen could be cleaner.

I really enjoyed my stay for 10 nights. The staff and other backpackers are friendly. The hostel is clean and the facilities are as advertised. For the price of the hostel free wifi would have been nice. The 400m to the beach is nothing but there are closer hostels you may want to consider if your carrying a surf board.

This is a pretty nice hostel. It's about a 15 min walk to the whole shopping area along with the beach. You can rent surfboards for a day for $20 from them. I stayed in a nine person all female dorm and even though there were so many people in the room I really enjoyed it. The rooms are set... More
