The location is great as it's only about a 5 minute walk (with backpack) from the main bus stop. I booked a four bed dorm but ended up in an apartment for 8 people. It was good as we had our own bathroom, kitchen and living area but it was very old and not the cleanest with ants inside. I didn't get much sleep as the other bedroom door kept rattling with the wind (even when closed). And the front door would open with the wind so not very secure. I wouldn't stay again and wouldn't recommend.

Very good hostel. Well located. Fast Wi-Fi (only in reception tho) . Free bikes. Surfing boards.etc. lots of activities. You can drink inside til 10.30. Good kitchen. Etc. The only problem for not getting 10 is the music they put a 10am everyday. Normally hard metal . That makes it hard to sleep a bit more.

I stayed here for about 6 nights in total...It was difficult to be able to sleep at times...reason being people were sooooooo loud at night and in the mornings and you can here it like they are stood right next to your bed if your room is close to the kitchen and table area...ask for a far corner room... The staff are really nice and friendly...it's about a 7 minute walk to the beach and close to the all the shops... The beds are ok and they clean every day so its a clean hostel...

If you stay anywhere in Byron make it here. Sociable hostel with great staff, especially the Canadian on nights! Great BBQ nights on Wednesday which gets everyone chatting! Want to go back!

Great hostel with good location and good wifi in reception (not in rooms). Good atmosphere and comfy beds. The only downside was paying deposits for every single kitchen item. But overall I wouldn't definitely recommend.

Great place to go to as two 24 year old girls. Really friendly place with a great atmosphere which you could get involved in if you wanted or easily do your own thing. Located right by the supermarket and about a 5-10 minute easy walk from the beach. Rooms were nice and cool when incredibly hot outside. Staff were super helpful and the facilities were always very clean.

Great place to stay !! Awesome location, right beside the grocery store, across from the bar and down the street from the bus stop. All very convenient. Also nice and quiet at night so you can actually sleep. Very clean, lots a friendly staff and lots to do in the village. Only complaint is that the wifi is only in the reception building which can be pretty inconvenient and they turn it off at 9pm. Other than that I loved it here!

I didn't use the kitchen, but the room and bathrooms were fine. Excellent location. Wifi in reception area only and was pretty slow, and they turn it off at night.
