You go there for the vibe, quite dirty, cold during winter, only one set of toilets and showers for the whole facility. Place could use a fix-up for the interior, couches etc.

Place was pretty filthy (showers especially looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks), but the staff were great. It seems to be all about the vibe with this place, the bar is fun to start your night and you can win great prizes on the trivia night! Overall a decent stay but just wish they would really clean the rooms and bathrooms!

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.
