    Amazing hostel! Had an great stay at the Arts Factory. The staff are great, the cafe food rocks and the overall vibe is really fun. We were in the Loveshack right near the volleyball courts and had no issues whatsoever with noise. Had 1 problem during my stay and reached out to a staff member after check out. The general manager Alix responded and sorted it out promptly. Very happy with the great service, and would highly recommend the Arts Factory.

    Stayed for 3 nights as a solo traveller, great atmosphere, easy to meet people and make friends, a little walk from town but makes you feel like you are in your own little Byron bubble. Would recommend.

    When we first arrived at the Arts Factory, it was not at all what we expected. The hippie culture was very prominent and it took a while to feel like we fit in. However, after a few days we realized how unique of a place it is and learned to love it :) About a 20 minute walk from town which wasn’t the most convenient, however all the activities and the chill atmosphere made it worth the trek. Definitely an experience we don’t regret, but make sure you have an open mind upon arrival :)

    Super chill vibes, nice pool and lots of cool people. WiFi is terrible and showers don’t seem to have hot water for very long, but this place is great if you’re super easy going and wanting to meet a lot of hippies !

    Lots of chilled vibes, but can also be quite loud. Staff are useless they never help. The kitchen was a bit small and the fridges were so cramped of bags they need more plus more sinks always a queue. Be mindful of your rooms as people just give their key codes to anyone and they just walk in even if they don’t stay so not great! Could do with tea and coffee making facilities. Only a ten minute walk to town or free shuttle bus. Quite an experience shall we say! Wouldn’t recommend.

    Room was filthy. No clean sheets on bed. When I requested clean sheets I was assured they would be brought to me but they never were before reception closed for the night. I slept without sheets. When I attempted to check out the next morning, the staff member on duty said he was clocking off and to wait for the next person. The next staff member didn't come to the front desk for half an hour.
