This hostel is a great place to stay if you want natural surrounds. With teepees and permanent tents by the pond with bushland settings. And activities such bushland tucker walks and plant bracelet making. But just watch your step with the water dragon/lizards and bush turkeys, who roam throughout the grounds. Also they had the best talent show I ever experienced with musicians, singers, beat-boxers, fire-twirlers and didgeridoo players. And the Byron Bay Brewery is just across the car park.
Really enjoyed my stay at The Pickled Frog. Comfortable, old fashioned pub feel and friendly hostel. With cool murals and designs painted on the walls. Cheap beer and free lifts to MONA , as well as up to Mt Wellington and back, if you don't want to do the bush walk/hike down. And free WI FI and internet. hostel with really cool murals and designs painted on the walls
Really nice hostel, everything you need such as wi-fi and laundry. But a lift or porter might have helped for the steep stairs to the 3rd floor.
Friendly helpful staff who could speak good English. Everthing else good but need an inhouse laundry.
