Generally filthy place, especially kitchen. Stoves not really working - you have to use 5-10 mins just to try getting the gasstoves lit. The atmosphere wasn't good either - just a lot of groups or single persons having enough in themselves.. No community as you will experience in a lot of other hostels. It's OK if you just need a place to stay one night, but I wouldn't recommend it for longer stays.
This is a nice hostel with a good atmosphere however I think it suits the younger travellers better since it is a partyhostel for youths. The average age of the people in this hostel are very young. It´s not the cleanest place, but it´s alright. Outside of all the doorms there is a common area where all people gather at night which is very nice but can sometimes be at a bit loud but the staff shuts it down by 10pm, but then you don´t have any common area to be at.
Very poor only thing going for it was the location, the rooms was like prison cells, staff quite argumentative at times.
Nice hostel. No lockers but really friendly vibe and didn't seem like a big deal. everyone gets together at the big table in the middle or the pool before going out. Close to the beach and everything else you need. Awesome friendly Canadian staff are always around with all the answers.
The hostel was good overall, but more for younger people who like partying. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms we're ok, kitchen inside (we stayed in an appartment with two bedrooms) was a bit dirty, as well as the bathroom.
Good for travellers, free wifi and hire of surfboards and bikes is great!!!
Great hostel! Internet works during office hours, clean, lots of showers, big kitchen, good vibe, the owner is extremely nice, 10 minute walk to beach, close to all bars and food!
Awesome hostel. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Great location, short walk down the road from the beach and shops, bars etc. Woolworths right next door. Good evening activities in the courtyard make it really sociable. Deposits for things were a little expensive but hey its a deposit you get it back.
Great place to stay in Byron Bay! Staff super friendly and accomodatig, free board hire, hostel BBQ on Saturdays, super close to groceries...an awesome place! I would definitely recommend it to others!
This is a nice hostel in a good location. I was in an apartment at the back so felt very separate from the hostel but I preferred that. Clean and friendly :)
