    Stayed at the Aviary for my first time. THE BEST HOSTEL EVER!!!! The staff were so awesome and welcoming. Instantly made you feel like part of the family. Anytime you needed anything, it was never a drama. Plus the main bloke who runs the place, Matt, is super cute. Kind of a cross between a young Kelly Slater crossed with Mathew McConaughey, a real stallion. Would recommend the place to anyone who is going to Byron. Can't wait to go back.

    BEST hostel ever! This place was so much fun and it seriously feels like everyone is a part of one big family. You are made to feel so welcome and right at home from the moment you get there. Tents are clean and comfortable. Shuttle services are a nice touch. Toilets and showers were always kept clean. The night events were so much fun and a great way to get to know people. Would most definitely recommend this place for people that enjoy camping and having fun with like-minded people.

    The best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The owners and staff are all well friendly, always inviting new comers for day and night outings. It’s very communal, and nice to be just out of the town to have some peace and quiet if wanted. Ten minute walk to one of the best beaches here. Toilets and showers were nice and clean as was the kitchen. Really cool outdoor set will definitely come back! 10/10 I recommend it to everyone coming to Byron bay.

    Only stayed here 2 nights, but really enjoyed our sleeves. WiFi was really fast and reached all around the campsite and the free breakfast was a really nice surprise. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend!

    First off, this place saved me when I got stuck from the bush fires, and was the only accommodation available (that wasn’t $500/night), so I highly recommend it just for that. But it’s also a lovely little campground with friendly people. It’s harder to get into town and back if you don’t have a car, but they run a drop off twice a day, and uber is cheap enough. Note, this isn’t glamping, expect a bit of dirt and bugs, but it’s certainly not rustic either and has everything you need.

    Very Good

    Cool concept and the vibe is great. As with most camping, cleanliness levels aren’t great and the kitchen is often surrounded by bugs. The bathroom is a walk away which isn’t very fun in the middle of the night. The air mattress deflates while you’re sleeping so you wake up early / often and uncomfortable. The staff are super nice, inclusive and cheery, putting on events and non-compulsory nights out. This is a great relaxing base in a hectic party town!
