I had a really good time at Backpackers Holiday Village. It has a very sociable atmosphere, where you can meet other people staying at the hostel. My room was in an apartment with two rooms with two bunk beds each and a living room with TV, kitchen and bathroom. You could choose either to stay in your apartment with your roommates or go to the main area with the rest of the hosts. I really recommend it!

Awesome hostel! Staff was super helpful and friendly! Great location, always good deals going on to create a great atmosphere. The workers constantly were cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen which was awesome. Rooms were clean. Great balance between party and quiet. The staff has a 1030pm noise curfew which is awesome. Everyone gets together and goes out together at that time and if your not up for it you get some quiet. All and all great stay would recommend.

Only down side was that we had a pair of very obnoxious roommates who seemed to think they owned the place.

The hostel is a little away from the main beach area, they give free surf rentals but the boards aren't great quality and it's a long walk to the beach. The room was comfy and clean, the showers and bathroom area wasn't kept as nice during the day and there aren't quite enough of either. Kitchen facilities are good.

This hostel was perfect for meeting people, the atmosphere was great fun and the deals on food with cheeky monkeys was insane! Rooms where clean and bathrooms. The only thing I would say is that the staff are rude and impolite, don't be expecting smiles very much.

Great location and atmosphere. The setup was like a holiday unit complex with a swimming pool and outdoor tables in the middle. The rooms were quite clean and fresh with big opening windows and fans. There was a lot of noise around the pool area during the day and up until 10.30pm, but staff were great at making sure noise was kept down after 10.30pm.

Good atmosphere if you want to party. I didn't like the deposit for everything.

Incredible hostel! Favourite in Australia by far, the atmosphere every night was contagiously happy and I had a smile on my face the entire time I was there. From the free for hire bikes, surfboards and the incredible location, this hostel had no faults! The BBQ Saturday was an amazing Aussie experience and I'm looking forward to visiting again soon!

Loved this hostel! Stayed in a 3 bed dorm, was fantastic. Beds were super comfy! Staff were friendly and accommodating. Big kitchen with lots of shelf space. Pool was awesome and the but communal tables with radio always playing was really nice. Location couldn't have been better. Felt like summer camp and also like home. I extended my trip, as did most of the friends I met there. Best stay on the East Coast yet!

Great fun, the little chalets with kitchenette facilities in particular. Staff great. Board and bike hire good. Opposite cheeky monkeys!

Really good set up of the rooms like little apartments with your own kitchen (4 bed mixed) - and good food and drink deals at cheeky monkeys over the road.. the housekeeping staff (not all of them) were a bit over the top strict..

Perfect location that's close to everything; awesome BBQ night; helpful staff is able to book tours, transit, etc. Caveat with wifi is it isn't 24 hours and is confined to reception... but Byron is so great that you shouldn't be on wifi nonstop anyway! Would recommend!
