Very nice hostel with very nice staff people. Close to the beach and city centre. Good hostel for a good time in Byron Bay.


Could have done with


Really nice hostel right near the beach and the town. Staff were nice and organise walking tour of the headland which was cool. There isn't any free wifi and it was expensive to buy. There is no air con in the room and the fan did absolute nothing so it was really hot during the night


As long as you go in with a low expectation this place is great. I haven't been in a hostel for a number of years and it was a bit of a shock. The rooms were BOILING, no air con and the fan did nothing. My bed was covered in ants. The hostel was quiet and I did sleep but I only stayed 1 night instead of 3 as it was very clear I'm not cut out for hostels anymore!

Loved the environment of this place, loads of buzz and easy to make friends if you're travelling by yourself. The kitchen facilities regarding the utensils were a little poor plus you have to queue for the sinks in the kitchen for a good while to clean up but otherwise loved my week here.
