It's a relaxed lifestyle at YHA which is what it's all about in Byron so if your wanting to have the proper experience this is your place. Thanks... More

It is a clean place, with friendly staff. I enjoyed the pool and free pancake on Monday. Very close to Cheeky Monkeys. Is a bit dark around if you are coming back late from the city centre. The environment is nice but probably need more activities :)..

For those familiar with the backpacker trail internationally, the Byron Bay YHA represents a happy, straightforward, typical backpacking experience. A no fuss, lively melting pot of cross cultural travellers, pooled in together. This YHA is perfect to meet likeminded souls making their way up and down Australia's east coast and an energetic social crowd if you're looking for a local... More

The hostel was clean and decent but the manager was terrible. Our friend was having a seizure, waiting for the taxi to take him to hospital. The manager was demanding that my friend moved when he could barely stand, because he was feeling sick and could barely walk. Was very upset how he treated our friend in the state he... More

Hi Amelia We are really sorry that your friend was sick in Byron. We are not sure who you talked to at the time, but can assure you that it was not the hostel manager or regular staff as they didn't know about the problem. If they had, they would have offered assistance. Please contact us directly if you would... More

Stayed in byron for 4 nights. It was really a nice hostel, a very good energy. The staff was very helpful in booking events. The kitchen and the bathrooms were nice and clean. If I ever went back to byron i would stay there again :)

We came here for a surfing trip and had such a hoot. All the staff were really good! Special mention to Will! Hostel was really clean and good value for money. Already planning our next trip. Byron itself was amazing and we really got into the spirit of things. Recommended!!

Right in the centre of Byron Bay this hostel has very nice facilities with swimming pool. The price is fair enough for a good staying and location. I stayed there for 2 night and I'm going to stay again and go back to Byron.

I'm an easy to please traveller but the lack of air con made sleeping a challenge. I'm really good with heat but this was frankly unbearable. Not what I expected from a YHA. Otherwise nice staff and easy up socialize. Better to visit in cooler months when it's not so hot.
