As far as hostels go, this place can't be faulted. Me and my boyfriend were travelling as part of a tour group and had a private double room with ensuite. It was comfy, clean and modern, what more can you ask for? It's also in a convenient location, in the middle of town and a short walk to the shops... More

I felt safe staying here (much safer than at Arts Factory Hostel), fun and lively, clean and well kept. Near the nightlife and they arranged some great tours too. Good value for money. Byron Bay is lovely, great town and you can't backpack OZ without at least a few days here!

The hostel itself wasn't terrible! We had a double room and were surprised to find it had a tv in it, which was a little bonus for when you were getting ready to go out and wanted to watch the news quick or something! I enjoyed the location a Lot! Very central location which is great, easy walk from bus... More

Clean rooms and bathrooms, helpful staff, equipped kitchen with a lot of fridge space and shelves. Our room had a balcony. Showers have good water pressure and are a good size. Big outdoor area on the first floor. There are activities planned for every day.

I stayed in a 10 room dorm, which had 5 bunks bed for 4 nights. The centre was very busy with young people who were mainly there to party every night. They even had music playing in the bathroom. The facility is ideally suited to the young, party traveller. I found it too noisy, dirty (as a result of the... More

Hostel was very clean and located in a great spot next to all the stores you need! Aldi situated right next door as well as bottle shops and cafes. Travel shops, retail and other boutique stores all located within close proximity. Staff are extremely helpful, rooms were large and airy and kept clean. Kitchens were clean and kept tidy as...

The reception and location are great, but you hear every noise. Since the door has a mechanical arm, it slams shut at all hours. Staff where talking very loudly at 5.30 am, the toilets very kind of smelly and the kitchen has no oven (not even am elevtrical one)

Booked into an 8 man room. Check in was easy and quick. Room did smell a bit of cigarette smoke when first entering and carpet was quite dirty. However, the guests were friendly, and so were the staff. The toilets looked like they had just been renovated and were of the highest standard I've seen so far in Oz (same... More

Great spot to stay in Byron Bay for the night. The location was very central and close to everything. The staff were very welcoming and helpful the entire stay. The type of room was exactly what we wanted, bunk beds with a bathroom. Would definitely stay here again if in Byron for another short stay.

This hostel is well-located and has easy access to paid parking underneath (ALDI car park). The check-in was straightforward and the reception well-staffed. The reception area was spacious, clean and uncluttered and the security guard on the door on the Saturday evening was friendly and polite. We had a 6-bed dorm for the 6 of us and it was plenty...
