    I've travelled extensively around the world, and The Surf House is equal 1st Backpackers with The Oak Lodge in Cape Town, but for different reasons. Oak Lodge was much smaller and very bohemian, whereas The Surf House is a good deal larger and is run more like a hotel. What they both have in common, however, is the vibe, and you can't buy that. The vibe boils down to how the place is run, so a big thank you to Ryan, Piet, Kira, Johnny, Dani, Shani, Sam, Jordan and anyone I've forgotten.

    Can't fault anything. We had a fantastic time and felt very well looked after by the friendly staff. Facilities were amazing, especially the rooftop bar. Location can't get any better and the free surfboards are a plus as well. We'll be back😊

    One of the nicest and cleanest hostels I’ve stayed in so far in Australia! Kitchen is huge with an open space to meet other travellers. Our room was vacuumed every day, and the bathrooms were cleaned regularly. Would definitely stay here again, the only downside is there isn’t a communal area to sit outside when it’s too windy for the beach.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at! The place was so clean and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Rooftop bar was such a vibe and they had great specials each night! $5 pizzas and drinks were a happy sight for any backpacker! Will definitely be back 😊

    The place is beautifully done up, the rooms are very clean and atmosphere is very relaxed. The staff are very welcoming. Right next to the main beach and shops. The roof top bar is a nice place to hang out and the music stops at 10pm so everyone can sleep well to catch the early morning surf! Would definitely stay again :)

    Great stay at a modern, clean and friendly hostel. Fun events at the hostel bar which is a great addition to a hostel. Amazing location right on the beach in the centre of Byron. This is my second stay there (private room and 4 bed dorm experience) and I would definitely go back.
