Good hostel with cool vibe. Comfortable and clean with mostly good staff. No lockers in rooms gets a few minus points.

It's all about the vibe at this place, and the vibe is amazing. Friendly people, loads of common areas, hammocks (!), nice surroundings (there is even a lake in the hostel), daily activities and workshops for little or no money. All in all its a really nice place to stay, BUT the facilities are not very good at all. There are no functioning lockers, you have to pay deposit for everything (blanket, pots, glasses) , no water pressure in the showers and the rooms are cold. But would still recommend

This is a nice place with a great location and vibe which is what you expect in Byron Bay. However other than that the facilities are not that great which. The kitchen and toilets were in absolute mess.does not cater for the people the hostel can host. no place to store grocery and fridges are overfull.kitchen & outdoor eating area was dirty.Worst were the toilets.public toilets in Byron were a lot cleaner.such a cool place and its a shame the hostel doe not care about basic amenities.

It is really far away from everything in Byron. The staff tend to be rude if you aren't a hippie. A girl said thank you on the free shuttle and was brushed off rudely by the staff driving. Then the staff driving yelled at everyone to where their seat belts. The staff seemed stressed and overworked. The facilities are a little dirty. Not worth the distance. Stay somewhere else.

Chilled out place located on the swamp reserve. Close walk to town and the beach. In the morning be prepared to be woken up by singing birds and clumsy bush turkeys! On a hot day there is lost of lizards sunbathing around the hostle! Really awesome place, I definitely recommend!

Only 3/6 lockers in our room were useable, 2 had no doors. Location is set quite far back from the town although a shuttle was available. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Kitchen is very limited with quite a few broken hobs, also had to give Id if you wanted to use any pots or pans

This hostel is abit out of the way but they do run a shuttle service to and from town, the room was basic and the facilities were OK security lockers are very small so can only fit a few items in at a time.

Arts factory is the place to stay in Byron bay, a little bit more expensive but totally worth it. Amazing vibes, amazing people and lots of activities to do. Cockatoo Paul's bushwalk and other activities are incredible. The shuttle bus driver (Joe) was also very helpful, informative and friendly. Overall Arts factory made me feel very welcome.

Nice hostel in a very cool location. Has a very chilled out atmosphere and a good cafe! The kitchen is great for the size of the hostel and everything need to be signed out. I would stay here again if I was visiting Byron bay in the future. Also, take your own drink as there is no bar.
