    Such a nice place! Was a nice change to camp instead of go to a proper hostel even despite the rain. People were all friendly and the night out was fun with good drinking games

    Hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff are so friendly and helpful. It’s just a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Tallows Beach. There’s a really great atmosphere at The Aviary, it’s such a good place to meet new people. There’s always things to do in the evenings, from goon games and goon pong to more chilled out camp fires and BBQs. The outdoor lifestyle is so different to any other hostels, staying in a tent is really fun, it really gives you a true Byron experience! :)

    Best experience of my life. Staff were awesome so helpful, nothing was too much for them. So knowledgeable about the area . The atmosphere was the best . The concept of a camping youth hostel is so great and to do this in Byron is unbelievable. The entertainment at the hostel was so much fun , got us all out and about meeting all the other backpackers . Meet so many great people. Definitely will go back and tell all my friend . Thanks for a great memory Josh , Matt , Sheree and the Aviary

    Very Good

    Good spot for camping in Byron. The tents they put up for you are quite nice. The atmosphere in this hostel/camping is quite good with cheap events every night. The cleaning and the conditions of the bathroom and kitchen should be improved. The location is outside the city center but doable with hitchhiking our their shuttle from the information center (3 times a day)

    The idea of this place is good and the guy who runs it is a legend. However - albeit cheap - you do expect to receive certain standards when paying for a ‘room’ even if you are informed before arriving that it is a tent. Mouldy pillows and sleeping bags which stank of dank sweat are not acceptable - whatever the price. In addition, when rules are shared on arrival explicitly asking guests to be quiet after 10pm - when nothing is done about people fighting and partying until 2am, really?
