Of course, you're staying at a backpacker inn, so you're going to get what you pay for. Saying that, my short stay has been average. The beds, toilets and showers were clean and well-maintained. Lots of kids party at night and they get really noisy until 11 in the evening. Afterwards it's gonna be quiet until they start shuffling back... More

There are two YHAs in Byron Bay. But it doesn't really matter if you get them mixed up as they are only a short walk from each other. The Byron Bay YHA has a fantastic location. You can walk everywhere - to the beach, shops, supermarkets, bars. Byron has a lovely small town feeling and it is a nice place... More

Byron bay is the most amazing place! Luckily our hostel made it even better. We stayed in a 4 bed female dorm it was really spacious and clean! Nice walk into the centre took about 10 minutes to get to the beach. It's very lively at night so it's easy to meet people but if you want a quiet night... More

Pros. Nice staff, convenient location, pool Cons. Endless noise. Came here to relax, it's just teens going nuts. 24/7. There is absolutely no peace and quiet whatsoever. Screaming, door slamming, breaking glass. Driving me nuts, Fans ineffective, Massively overpriced, No free wifi, Room not clean, Bed terrible Smelly drains, breakfast stale and overpriced. Everything is just a massive money making... More

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
