Property Description

Come and enjoy everything Byron Bay has to offer whilst staying at Cape Byron YHA!!

Only one block from the main beach and in the heart of town spend your days relaxing, shopping, eating in cool cafes then hire a surfboard or borrow a free body board and hit the beach or hire a bike to explore further afield.

Sink your feet in to the sand, join a surf lesson, kayaking with dolphins and whales (whale season June – November), visit the famous town of Nimbin, jump out of a plane, and watch the sunrise at Australia’s most Eastern point.

After all that excitement relax in the hostels common area, cook dinner in the communal kitchen, jump in the heated pool and get ready for one of the hostels many activities. Join a free walk to the lighthouse, meet new people at our crafternoon's, cheese and wine night or at our weekly BBQ’s and check out the weekly specials with our local tours.

Whatever your desire Byron Bay is the paradise where dreams come true. We look forward to meeting you.

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of vaccination. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices.

Very Good
Nov 18, 2022
It was a good hostel, fantastic location and a great pool. The upstairs showers leaked as there was not sufficient drainage, and dripped water all over the toilet block right underneath it downstairs, so that wasn't ideal. I marked down value for money because I paid $70 per night in a 10-bed room, which to me is exorbitant, but off-season may be more reasonable. There were good sized lockers in the rooms, but only a latched gate for temporary bag hold which wasn't super safe. Good place to stay

On brand with most other YHA. Well maintained and clean. Staff could be a tad more organized since there was confusion when I verbally cancelled an extra night I had booked but that happens. Would still stay again.
