Everything there is close to perfection, really enjoyed my stay, but you should chance your reception girl. She laughs nice, but when you turn around she shows how much she hates her job. But other than this its an awesome hostel
Good atmosphere, too many people sharing one bathroom, long queues for the shower in the morning and dirty bathroom

This place was more like a motel than a hostel, but there was nothing wrong with it. It was a nice place to stay, kitchen was huge which was great, it was clean. Its was only a minute walk to the middle of town and to the beach, great location!
Had a big possum in my room. Funny with activities on the evenings. Easy to meet people!
Stayed here for two nights in a 10 bed dorm, absolutely loved the hostel. Really clean, great facilities and close to the beach (everywhere in Byron is). Best thing about this hostel was the rooms which were lovely and big and the roof top hammocks. Staff weren't as involved in the 'hostel life' as some other places I've stayed but that's just the way the place is run. Overall a really good place to stay and would recommend.
First person in reception was very helpful. The second was so rude and mouthy. Couldn't find hardly any kitchen equipment besides frying pans (plates etc for hire in recept.). Booked what we thought was a private private room but it was just a bed through a door off the dorm room.
Nice hostel. Dorm rooms are two stories so not crowded. Messy kitchen but immaculate in the mornings. Deposit for cutlery. Nice common areas with TV cable, pool table, pool, hammocks. Would stay again for sure!
Nice place. Best 10 bed dorm I've stayed in. The bathrooms get pretty filthy with 10 girls in there but the rooms are two story so it's a very spacious dorm otherwise! Security is decent at night because they have a guard buttt anyone from the hostel can come into your room at any time because no one locks the doors. Good common areas with TVs and pool tables. Paid internet doesn't work in some rooms.
This hostel is the cleanest I've been to! It's spacious, there's a swimming pool, ping pong tables, pool table, hammocks. All rooms have their own bathroom and shower as well as a balcony. Loved it!
It was a great accomodation. A very big kitchen, clean rooms, very spacious, and a big hostel area, partly open-air. Quite quick wi-fi, unfortunately not for free.
Staff was not very polite. They didnt even look at us when we walked by. Location was good but it was VERY DIRTY (10 people and one shower/toilet!!!!)
we stayed in a double room, we didn't expect it to be in a dorm room but it was good to have a bathroom there.
