The resort is literally across the road from the beach. Town is a little further, but there is a free shuttle bus service by the hostel which is perfect (later at night taxis are also an inexpensive option). Rooms have fan but no aircon, next door is a good restaurant/cafe which closes around 11 at night.
The staff rocks and it's right next to he beach which is great! The wifi is slow even though you have to pay for it :-( all the hammocks around are lovely for lounging. Wish there were bigger lockers in the dorms, you couldn't fit much in them and due to this everyone's stuff was everywhere. They didn't clean every day, meaning sand was all over the floor. The private rooms look awesome though; I'd book one of those next time.
GREAT atmosphere! Free shuttle bus to town, 1 min from the beach and really nice common areas. Friendly and helpful staff! We loved staying here and would recommend to everybody :-)
A little bit out of town, but helps to maintain the relaxed atmosphere - and you are directly at the beach. Cats
I've travelled for over 9 months and stayed in a good few hostels, some have been poor, some average and some good. This hostel is by far one of my favourite :) it's just across from the beach and 10 mins walk to town or theres the shuttle bus back and from town. Most of the staff where very helpful, especially Charlie, very nice girl, always willing to help and always happy. I'd only been in the hostel 2 days and felt like I'd been here for ages, everyone was super friendly and chilled.
Miss this place already! Regina did an amazing job with BBQ. Can't wait to go back.
This hostel was great to stay at with lots of activities running throughout the week and a shuttle bus to take you into town. The location is okay, its close to a beach but is a 15-20 minute walk into town. It really suits the byron culture with Hammocks everywhere and the best hostel bbq I've been to
Great place to stay. Really happy with the facilities. Only down side is if someone is awake in the morning everyone is awake, as the walls are so thin.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, decent sized clean rooms but the bed was too squeaky. Upstairs shower/ toilet requires updating to offer same standard as lower floor block, which were great. Piano should be locked shut from children before 9am, unless they can play it. Nice location next to the beach.

We arrived quite late, but that was not a problem as staff was still there and helped us with all the questions and suggestions what to do near the Byron Bay. They are offering for free to take the bikes which is cool. Room was ok, even for our 5 suitcases. It was getting loud during the Friday night but if that is not bothering you, the atmosphere there is nice and really hippy. Linens were clean, bathrooms could be cleaner, we used grill in the common area. Would go there again.
This hostel is so clean, the kitchen was lovely to cook in. Always tidy! The rooms are spacious.. The bunk beds are a little annoying as they are so low but overall very good.. Byron beach resort is a very chilled hostel, not very lively but that suits some people. Little bit out the way of the town but free shuttle is very good just a bit of a walk if your our at night. Located pretty much on the beach and that is one of the many great that's!
