    The hostel was awesome! Great location super close to the beach and town. The people were super friendly and they had activities each night of the week and a free dinner (which wasn't bad)! They also had awesome hammocks on the roof. The bathroom could have been a little cleaner, but I would definitely stay at this hostel again as it had a great atmosphere and friend staff and residents.

    This has to be one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! Fantastic atmosphere making it extremely easy to meet new people! FREE dinners every night that we’re amazing! Also, portions were pretty big and we were even offered seconds some nights. Great location. Staff are amazing. Rooms are never locked but there are lockers. Quiet time at 11 pm (close enough to clubs to go out though!) One suggestion- could be cleaner. Found en-suites and rooms quite dirty. Staying again without a doubt!

    Great hostel, amazing atmosphere. Free dinner is a big plus aswell! Only criticism I have about this place is that they charge deposit for cutlery, plates and bowls which is a bit annoying but other than that, really amazing hostel

    Great location and free meals were a plus. Bar on site which was good during happy hour but a bit pricey in regular hours. Because of the bar you couldn’t bring your own drink. The room we were in (6bunk) was very spacious and cleaned daily. Overall very impressed

    Clean, good location and nice dinner. Too much of a party hostel for me though. There wasn’t really a chill common area so the only place to meet people at night was at the bar which is kinda awkward for solo travellers I think.

    Good stay in Byron Bay. Hostel is in a good location and you get free dinner for the nights of your stay. Mind you the portions are very small. Nice atmosphere but it wasn’t too busy when we were there so hard to judge social aspect as we met people on our bus who we hung out with there. 4 min walk to beach and 7 mins max to Aldi. Incredible coffee place just next door and you got 10% off if you stayed in the hostel.

    Overall this is a great hostel and I would recommend! Pros: great location, social atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, cheap drinks, good activities, and free food (good, but restaurant offers more too) Cons: the lockers were small and couldn’t accommodate my backpack. Beds were passable, but not great. Same with bathroom and bedroom cleanliness - one odd thing was people that weren’t staying in our ten bed room would often walk through it from the porch to the courtyard.

    Rooms are nice enough. Doors never locked though and people constantly using our room as a walkway through to balcony- a bit off considering also signs in the room about security and armed robbery. Free dinner is good! Good locationnin byron. Some long stay guests make the atmosphere less fun

    Good location and girl at the travel desk was super helpful but room was dirty and prices were too high considering the 10 bed room was practically empty and not as social as it seemed online as a lot of the people staying there are long term not backpackers
