“Byron Bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

Nice modern hostel, clean bedrooms and spacious, kitchen at times can be a complete mess as no one tidys. And food has gone missing. Can see it being very crowded and noisy during peak season.

Stayed October 2009, traveled as a couple

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Great and groovy new backpackers within walking distance of everything in the middle of town. Clean rooms, good facilites, lots of hot running water, not too noisy but with great party areas if you want them. Staff on the front desk vary from fantastically helpful and sweet to aloof and rude. Like that doesn't always happen!
