6 months of travelling All Around the World and this is the best hostel I've been. Great bed, great shower, great outdooors and just some steps from the beach. Staff is the best! And the attmosphere so cool and relaxed. Not a bunch of teenagers getting drunk! Shuttles to town very useful and even the walk by the beach was great, only 15 minutes. 10 dollar bbq was a great way to meet people and still have nice Cheap food.
Really enjoyed our stay at Byron Beach Resort. Felt they had everything covered in terms of all that a guest might need when on holiday there. Staff friendly and helpful and the quiet location across the road from the beach but within arms reach of the town was perfect! Would happily stay there again.
Great hostel in a quiet location right next to the beach. There's something on every night so plenty to do. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The kitchen does get a bit hectic at dinner time especially with only two sinks but there's plenty of space for storage of your food. I met some very nice people here, staff and guests alike and really enjoyed my time here. You have to pay for wifi but generally it works well. The shuttle bus into town is so helpful when you've been shopping!
Realy great hostel. I love that the hostel is located near the beach. shuttle buses can bring you into town. Nice hammocks and a little garden. I would definitely stay here again!
Amazing hostel situated 2minutes from the beach. They have free shuttle to the cite (~5 minutes away) but have two great restaurants next door. I would recommend this hostel to anyone! Great staff as well and you can rent surfboards for the day and free bikes
Lovely hostel. Right opposite the beach and about a 20 minute walk into Byron. Good size dorms and good atmosphere. The onlydownside was having to pay a deposit for everything including geting your own cutlery! Would stay here again though.
I really loved the location of the hostel and will definitely be staying again, I thought the shuttle should run just maybe a few more times a day but I inderstand they aren't always busy. I loved the en suite bathrooms and the hammocks. Also, the reception opening times were a little inconvenient. I had a great stay and will be back! Thank you!

I can't fault this place. Yeah, it's a little bit far from town but it's a nice walk along the beach to get there. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the showers (at least the one in my room) were amazing. The staff is really nice. The beach is literally a stones throw away, and it's way quieter and nicer than the main beach. Definitely not a party hostel, which is exactly what I wanted. It's just so nice
Nice hostel. Very chill. Away from the town but they have a shuttle. If you want to party stay in town if you want a low key vibe stay here. Overall very good hostel.

This place is amazing if you want to meet people and have a great time! Highly recommended to travelers traveling alone because everyone is so friendly here!!!
Great location, unbeatable proximity to a beautiful beach, very good bars with live music next doors, for the big night out just a 10 min walk at the stunning beach into town, clean and new facilities
Really enjoyed our time at the Byron Beach Resort. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown area but we thought this was a huge plus - it puts you at arm's reach from the craziness and allows you faster access to a beautiful beach. The facilities were nice and there's a fantastic garden area with hammocks. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Byron!
Hostel is clean and close to the beach. It's about a 15 min walk to the town along the beach although it doesn't feel very safe at night and shuttles stop at 8.30pm. If you are looking to meet other travellers- this is not the place to stay as it wasn't very social. Minor point but we found some staff rather unhelpful !
Not a bad hostel, rooms are clean and spacious and mine had an ensure and little living room which was a good touch. No activities like games room or pool or anything which meant it wasn't a very social hostel. Right next to the beach but don't believe the staff when they tell you it's a 10 min walk down the beach to town because it's more like 35/40 mins! Regular shuttle bus but stops at 9:15 at night so have to make your way back somehow after that.
Really nice hostel a bit out of town - it's a nice 10 minute walk on the beach. The staff was really friendly and the hostel was totally clean (cleaning every morning). The beach is directly on the other side of the street and it is beautiful! Would definitely recommend to stay there.
A wonderful hostel I would like to stay longer!
The hostel has a mix of backpackers and families on their holidiays. This plus the location which is a bit outside Byron makes it a really nice place for people who wanna relax and take an easy time. Great that the beach is just a footstep out the door. Good for surfing, sunbathing and a nice day at the beach. Not ideal for going out though. Very clean and very friendly staff!! Definitely recommend!
Right by the beach, so quiet but only a 15 minute walk to Byron. Nice grassy area, cute TV room and spacious kitchen.
