Great hostel! Met an amazing group of people here, spent Australia Day there with so many great people! Arrived as a solo traveller not knowing anybody and have come away with great friends. It's a little out of town, but just a 15 minute walk down the beach (it's right on the beach) into town and there is a regular shuttle bus.


Very nice and comfy hostel. Great atmosphere and a lot of activities. We would definitely recommend it.


Superb hostel. Really nice atmosphere and literally a stone's throw from the beach. Not the main beach though. We liked that this place was out of town but you can walk to town in 15-20 mins. Staff were very friendly and helpful and everything was nice and clean etc. Kitchen, TV room and BBQ area were all excellent.


Absolutely loved this resort, was initally worried that it was a little out of the town centre but it was a beautiful stop and the staff are amazing! So clean and nice!

Loved this stay, a bit out of the main shops of Byron so it was much quieter. Right across the road from a beautiful beach, lovely hammocks and gardens in the resort and the yoga tent at the back of the resort was fantastic! I'd definitely come back again

Would have been nice to have more all-female rooms available, as we heard from many females who were in a dorm with all males that it was uncomfortable.


You have to pay for the wifi and for cutlery. Not the sort of thing you would expect nowadays... They do loan you beach towels for free though an the beach is literally across the road. Location is great for the beach but if you can't wait for the minibus the walk into town is quite tedious...


Great Hostel, right across the road from the beach and about 15 min walk along the beach to town.


Wonderful place to stay. Nice and quiet. Loads of freebies like bikes, town shuttle, hammocks, beach right across the street. Wonderfully friendly staff and heaps of daily activities including yoga! Very relaxing stay here! Can't wait to come back!


Nice spacious rooms, just 1 Minute Walk to the ocean. 15 minutes to the city, but there is an hourly free shuttle. The Kitchen is a bit dirty.

No air con in the room, not even so much as a fan. Quite far out if town.


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.


good location


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
