Really expensive for what you get, bad wifi that only works in the reception area, dirty kitchen with bad pans and not not even a drop of oil or some salt.. The crowd was not the best either, lots of long termers and older (cranky) people, that I don't get why they are staying at a youth-hostel...

Not the greatest place I've ever stayed, the rooms had no air con and were really small meaning they got very hot at night when there was 5 people in there, even when the temperature was in the mid 20s. Despite the staff where pretty friendly and helpful and it's close to the beach and town.

Not bad but room got real hot with only 1 fan and it was only in the mid twenties. Couldn't sleep and there was no where else to sit or try to sleep outside the room as all the lounge / pool areas are closed off during the night.. I feel the lounge area should be 24/7 at least... the pool makes sense. Don't rely on the free parking, we were lucky and there was 1 spot left underground.. it is a nice secure park but only limited spots so you might miss out and have to park on the metered street!

Don't know about this one. Staff is nice. Pool and facilities are good, but Internet is truly terrible and they close the common area and internet at 10PM. A bit painful.

Very well located hostel. Quite lively, music playing during the day but despite being in a five bed dorm I did get a good nights sleep. The only downside is that I was one of the lucky ones to get a parking space as there are VERY FEW and parking in Byron is not free! I feel that the very limited parking should be stated in the hostel website. Good showers and kitchen and helpful staff.

Hostel is fine, probably a bit expensive for what it is, showers were dirty but good. Some staff friendly but some rude. Pool was nice and great location really near the beach. Would stay here again but probably better places to stay in Byron bay.

4 bed dorm was so very hot. Only a single fan in it. Kitchen was a mess. Gate to community open to public. Staff was very personable and helpful.

Loved my stay here, great location for walking down to the beach and plenty of activities going on. You do get free wifi in the common room with is good. Cutest dog wondering the property. Only thing would be that the showers could do with a little renovation.

Perfect location, clean and well laid out rooms, large kitchen and heaps of socialising space. Pool is great when you've had too much beach! Loved it here would definitely go back!!

The staff at this hostel are LOVELY and give the place a great atmosphere. Bathrooms aren't the cleanest but it's manageable, the $5 BBQ on a Tuesday is great value for money! And free bike hire is amazing. Definitely do the walk to the lighthouse! If you need any advice on Byron just ask the reception they're so knowledgable and friendly. And they're right in the centre of town next to all the shops and cafes and 5/10 min walk to the beach! One con: If you want wifi in your room you have to pay
