Loved the location. Right across the the from the beach and only 15mins walk to town. Restaurant on one side and a bar on the other (although slightly pricey) Decent room, heater and ceiling fan included. Bunk bed was a little low though, I was on the bottom and couldn't sit up fully. Free wifi is 256kbps.....you have to pay I you want faster internet. Good large kitchen and communal areas. Lots of activities arranged.

Had a good time here! Although some of the staff were totally awesome and some were exceptionally unfriendly. Great location, short walk from downtown and right across the street from the beach! Best hostel BBQ I've ever had. Overall I would recommend it!

We thought reception staff were fantastic and very helpful, but would have appreciated more lively social activities based in the hostel in the evenings. Luckily there is a great pizzeria next door with great live music most nights. We thought this was a chilled out and well run hostel right on the beach but not for those looking to enjoy the nights as the hostel I common area itself is quiet by evening and town is a fair walk along the beach, especially for a couple of girls when it's dark!

Really clean kitchen and rooms. The beach is right onthe door step and you can take a beautiful walk along the coast line. The atmosphere in the hostel is very relaxed and friendly and you can use bbq's and enjoy the outside picnic tables and hammocks. The coutesy bus was brilliant. I would stay again and recommend to all.

This hostel was great! The staff were super helpful and friendly and there was something going on every day. Great location close to the beach, and while it's a little walk into town, there were shuttles running nearly hourly. Met some great people here too!

the room was pretty cold, the heater is definitly not sized for that size of room (pretty big), internet is too expensive (10aud for a 24h pass), but the location is nice if you like it quiet and close to the beach, big rooms

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hostel, booked in for a week and extended my stay to two weeks. Location is 30 seconds from the beautiful beach and 20 minute stroll along the beach to the town centre. Staff are friendly and helpful, atmosphere is great, and plenty of activities to meet fellow travellers. The Treehouse cafe next door has a chilled vibe with great food and live music 4 nights of the week. Highly recommended.

Awsome place to stay, staff very friendly and helpful and the general vibe of the place is very chilled out. Perfect place for backpackers or family lookibg for a little get away without being isolated. However it is advised to bring an extra blanket or a sleeping bag as the blankets there are a little thin. Other than that, best place to stay

Nice place. Didn't really like the staff though.. But great beach right across the road and a nice atmosphere!

I had a great time at the BBR, which had just the right mix of organisation and that laid back relaxed Aussie surf vibe. Everyone that was there agreed it was a great place. The only complaint was that they charged for internet usage, which I felt was a bit steep.

Really nice chilled out hostel! Awesome location - so near to the beach. It's not located very centrally, but you've got the free shuttles every hour or so. Nice, basic rooms, nice lounge and outside area! Staff is also very friendly. Keep up the good work guys!

Just one word: AMAZING

A very good hostel, awasome environment in nature, lots of amacas and cozy places to chill out and relax, wonderful atmosphere. Relax, easy to meet nice people but not a party hostel (luckily!). Only weakness point, is quite far from the centre, but if you're not so lazy you can reach it with an half hour walking!

Very impressed by this hostel! Location was perfect for the beach - only a stones throw away, and Byron Bay town centre is a 20min walk away. Beds are reasonably comfortable and the lockers are adequate

A bit out of town, but luckly there is a shuttle bus or a short stroll at the beach, which is just across the street.

Wow... What a location! A stones throw away from the beach, and a nice little 20minute walk to Byron Bay town centre. The rooms were pretty basic but quirky, and the rest of the complex was nice. The hammocks outside the room were a nice touch and gave you an awesome chilled out place to skype your friends and family. Very well priced!

I really liked this backpackers! It's 20 min by foot from Byron Bay CBD, but that also means that the beach is not to crowded there. However there are a few shuttles going to town. The building and garden look very pretty, you can perfectly relax here. The only thing that is bit annoying is that you have to leave the kitchen and common room at 10pm and the barbecue area at 11pm, but that's beacause there are also families. So you can just go to beach or byron bay.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful. They really care about their guest's experience. The atmosphere was very relaxing. I like that it's a little bit removed from the center of Byron, yet still a short walk to get there via the beach. Lovely. Overall a great place to stay!

We really enjoyed staying here, met some lovely people. It's slightly out the way but it's. Nice walk along the beach in the day. Some of the staff not too friendly, can't fault them all though. Big kitchen area but can be a lot of people there at once. All in all it was a nice place and we did enjoy our stay.
