My wife, daughter and myself stayed her efor three nights during a five week tour of New Zealand and Australia and found the place to be a little gem. My wife and myself had a double on-suite room and my daughter was booked into a four bed dorm which she actually had to herself.
The YHA is attached to a motel and the facilities are excellent. The host Len and Michele are fantastic and were always on hand with advice on things to do and visit in the local area. On our last night they even came over and shared a bottle of wine with us.
Ballina is a lovely little town just south of Bryon Bay, its definately worth stopping fat for a few days.
