Great location, good kitchen, outdoor pool area, bar, evening food voucher. One en-suite bathroom for the room made bathroom logistics a bit of a battle

I had a great stay here, nice rooms and a great atmosphere. Free supper every night which is great. The laundry facilities aren't great. There's a pool and a bar, you get great cheap drinks. Close the the beach and everything in Nyron. Would defiantly recommend staying here!

Apart from the lack of large lockers and the door to my dorm wouldn't lock, Aquarius was easily the best hostel I've stayed in. Awesome atmosphere, great staff and free dinner each night was great. Cheap drinks at the bar and loads of opportunities to get free entry etc into bars and clubs around Byron Bay. Great location too!! Highly recommend this hostel 😎

The hostel was in a great location, just a few minutes to the beach and also the drinks prices at the bar were very good. It had spacious dorm rooms with a nice outdoor area to sit and chat but this sometimes meant it could be quite noisy at night with groups outside talking. We stayed over the Easter weekend when prices were raised but we got less for it due to the bar being closed, activities postponed and many places being shut in the evenings. Mainly an enjoyable stay though!

This hostel was great, the location is really good and the building had its own bar and pool. The free dinner in the evening was nice and the dorms were actually really spacious, most of them had balcony's too. Would really recommend.

Great location and comfy beds. Very much a party atmosphere which is fine but sometimes keeps you awake until 3am if you aren't going out. Good free dinner and cheap drinks as well.

Cool place to stay- near everything and free meals were definitely a bonus! Rooms didn't feel that safe (we got back a few times and people had just left our doors wide open) but there are lockers in the room. Overall would recommend.

The atmosphere of this hostel was cool and fun. Had fun playing trivia and good happy hour drinks. The only horrible thing was the sleep. Someone was mowing the lawn at 6am and the birds were screaming. Did not get much sleep that night.

If you're looking for a party hostel with a great location, this hostel is a fine choice for you. But the rooms were so so dirty! Even though they "clean" the rooms everyday it is still filthy! The worst cleanliness I have ever seen. Free dinner every night is a plus, average taste.
