The staff and accommodations were fantastic. The lady at the front desk was especially helpful in finding places to eat and in booking a van to the airport.


I really recommend this YHA. Toilets and shower rooms are pretty clean, kitchen is wide, Wi-Fi works very well. This hostel itself has great atmosphere! And few Asian, so you can make Western friends easily here!


It was my first time staying in a hostel and I absolutely loved it- would love to do it again!

Really good hostel. Clean, good location and value for money. Staff actively tried to organise events and there was no nonsense at night.


Very clean hostel with good facilities but kicks you out of the main areas by 10pm so you can't really socialise... Was good for 1 night


The hostel was very nice and the staff were very help. Be careful who you room with though as we ended up with a drunk guy who was screaming things in his sleep which was a bit off putting.


Although this hostel was quite cheap, the staff and facilities explain why the cost per night is low. Myself and two other friends stayed there, originally booked for 3 nights however after 1 night, we could not stay the other two. The hostel has a no drinking game policy, and do not encourage social interaction in regard to drinking. Very boring hostel life, which ruined our first night - however after changing hostels, had an absolutely amazing time in Byron!
