Nice place to hang your hat. Carpets in the room were a bit old and so was the bedding. The bathrooms were very clean. Nice layout, more like a motel than a hostel. Had a pool and some nice lounge areas. Walking distance to everything. Overpriced internet like all YHAs.


Facilities were excellent - although due to the rain - I was unable to get from the room to the kitchen, etc without getting wet. Minor point though. Staff were extremely helpful, friendly and polite. Very impressed over all.


I stayed in a 5 bed mixed dorm which was clean, though quite cramped to put all your stuff down. However the lockers easily fit in my whole rucksack. Good location, close to the beach and path to Cape Byron. Toilet facilities very well kept, modern and clean. It was quite empty while I was there but there are common areas to meet people. Overall a good hostel I'd stay again!


Hostel OK. However, there was sand on the floor of the dorm. Main Bathroom door left ajar & unlocked so possible non-guests(?) were in men's bathroom in morning for their teeth cleaning. Some party noise late at night but stopped at 1am but it was Saturday night. mind you.


Very nice hostel, staff were very helpful and friendly.


Great hostel in an excellent location in the centre of Byron Bay. The rooms were clean and the beds were really comfortable. Free parking if you have a car.


Reception staff were incredibly helpful, very happy to book tours and activities for us.
