“Awesome Holiday Village”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed in a self contained unit at the Holiday Village, which was ideal for us as we wanted our own kitchen. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. The staff were friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The hostel side is great fun with a huge communal table by the swimming pool which was a great spot for socializing and meeting other fun and like mind people. The hostel was clean and tidy. We've traveled for years and always stay in hostels and I can honestly say this has been by far the best backpackers I have ever stayed in. It's a 5 minute walk to the Beach and there is a supermarket 2 mins walk away which was very handy. This little gem in Byron Bay won't let you down, had an AWESOME time here and we'll be back for sure.

Room Tip: You can either stay on the hostel side or upgrade to the self contained units for an extra couple of...

This is what a backpackers should be! Great atmosphere, great service, clean, and friendly family run hostel. Everything is free to use (surf- and boogieboards, bikes) just on a deposit basis. Having travelled around the world for over 10 years this place is where I come back time and time again! Keep up the good work, Holiday Village Rocks!!!

Room Tip: If you choose to flash out for only $3 a night more you can stay in the self contained units appartm...

The Holiday Village Backpackers was definitely the best hostel in Autralia for us. We have been in a lot of different hostels (Nomads, YHA, private ones) and there is no one like this. Everyone is friendly and helpfull. Also you can have soooo much fun, really!!! Laughing, drinking or hanging around at the pool are just a little number of things you can do at that place...
we would come back!!!!!!

It has been too long, since I have stayed in Byron Bay. This trip I stayed at the Holiday VIllage backpackers. The staff were amazing, providing information on great pubs and places to eat. Very impressed...also the backpackers was more like a hotel lots of space and even a fridge.

Holiday village was the best hostel we stayed at while backpacking Australia. The staff were exceptional, friendly, and always a good time. It was always kept clean and tidy, the kitchen was good and we enjoyed the bbq's they had. Great loaction from beach, shops, and bars. We couldn't ask for a better time in Byron bay and would love to come back one day.

Looking for a place to stay in Byron Bay? Look no further, Holiday Village is the place to be!! I spent three months living at this wonderful hostel. It's run by a great family and amazing staff. They take the time to get to know you and love to see familiar faces. Could not be in a better location, right next to Woolworth's and within stumbling distance to Byron's nightlife. Anything you need for a good time, they provide you with on a deposit basis... bikes, surfboards, body boards! Internet is cheap, which is always a bonus. Clean rooms, clean kitchen, clean pool, huge picnic tables outside, weekly BBQ's, daily & nightly activities, the list goes on. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, go check it out! Best part of my trip in Australia.
