by far the most social and fun hostel I have been to up the east coast! Great staff, great facilities, and the pool is a great place to hang out and meet people! If I return to byron I would stay here again without hesitation.

Great kitchen. Wifi is slow and only in the common area. You can buy fast wifi for 5$/day. Small lockers for everyone in the room, you need a lock. The free guided tour to the lighthouse is 3 hours and is amazing. Many young people in the hostel. They usually hang out late at night and come back drunk. You definitely need ear plugs if you want to go to bed before midnight. There is only one common washroom for everybody... gets dirty really easily.


Nice hostel. Friendly staff and excellent location. Only downside there wasn't many activities or events planned by the hostel- which would have been nice to meet more people.


Very friendly and helpful staff which helped make it a great experience as this was our first time staying in a hostel. The cleanliness was better than I expected in the toilets and showers and also rooms. It is in a prime location and they even came to lick you up free of charge from the coach terminal which was a great blessing. Would definitely recommend.

Nice hostel in the center of Byron with lockers in the room.

The staff was amazing and so was the free walking tour to the lighthouse! :D


I had a great time at Cape Byron YHA. The staff was so helpful and friendly and the free guided tour was fantastic. It was great to have free bicycles to borrow and it was quiet after 11 pm if you wanted an early night. The location was great, close to the beach and the city. The room and bathroom was basic and the kitchen was ok. I would stay here again.

The hostel has a big pool and in general very good facilities, but it feels like they don't take care of it! The toilets, showers and kitchen were not clean the rooms were quite small (we stayed in a 5-bed dorm).
