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


Extremely friendly staff. Very good Atmosphere. Maybe the best hostel I have Seen so Far in the East Coast.

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).


Free wifi was ridiculous slow. Blanket covers are not be changed and staff threw pillow and blanket on dirty carpet floor while making up beds. Free lighthouse tour was nice.


This hostel is the most expensive hostel I have stayed in, but kind of worth it :) guy on reception is fantastic goes out of his way to be friendly and helpful and remembers everybody's names!! Rooms are small but fit for purpose and clean. Kitchen and pool area were also nice and clean. Would definitely recommend :),


I had a brand new top taken from my bag in the room which ruined my stay here. The staff were really lovely and the location was perfect. Close to the beach and to the shops. Just remember you can never be to safe with your stuff! Oh and go to cheeky monkeys for $5 steak!


The staff were all super helpful and friendly. The room and bathrooms were clean and there was lots of activities. I would definitely stay here again!


reception staff are awesome, always there to help
