    Really nice hostel, good bar, great free dinner! The staff were all friendly and helpful. The ‘private room’ was inside a dorm which was weird. It was also veryyy small.

    Perfect Location, lovely roommates and really lovely pool area and rooms with balcony. Security guard was what ruined it- felt really uncomfortable and not safe and his actions were not okay. Would prefer to feel safe leaving my dorm room and not keep an eye out to make sure he was there or barging into our room

    As soon as I arrived to this hostel I felt unwelcomed. Reception staff weren’t friendly at all. The dorm was super messy! Live ins had stuff everywhere and the bathroom was super grimy. Beds were also uncomfortable. I did however really enjoy the bar and communal areas. The hostel is in a great location also !

    Byron has many places to stay that are much better in every way possible (besides maybe location) It was very disappointing that the pictures are 50% of an amazing looking rooftop bar that's closed and only used as a function space. Please remove those pictures as its misleading! Besides this common area was pretty much non existent and very dated. The highlight was definitely being greeted by the friendly giant on night duty patrols Greg 👌
