I recently stayed for 5 nights in this hostel. Our first impressions were fantastic considering it is on the MAIN street of Byron Bay and opposite the best backpacker bar Cheeky Monkeys. Check in was very efficient, friendly and helpful! Be aware that we paid a $40 deposit between two for a shared key and two bed sheets. Our room... More

We spent 4 days here. Awesome mini appartments for 2 rooms/8 ppl with own bathroom, kitchen and livingroom. Gives a lot of privacy and at the same time creates a lot of community with the other roomies in the flat ;) Nice swimmingpool, environment and bike and board rentals... everything you need! Definitely reccommend it! :)

The rooms were clean and the showers were pretty good. You don't get wifi in the rooms and the staff were REALLY rude. There was a good atmosphere with the others people staying though. Probably wouldn't stay again.

There was only one plug socket per four person dorm. We were also met with additional deposits to be paid on arrival for damages and $20 per key required, which other hostels haven't asked for. Cutlery and crockery was only available for hire at $1 per item, which left the feeling of being mistrusted. Overall, this had the feel of... More

Stayed for 3 nights with friends, working out way down the coast. The staff were so friendly and very helpful to us during our stay. Facilities were great- had our own kitchen and bathroom (shared with one other room). All you can eat BBQ on a Saturday night- was delicious! A walk away from the beach and also close enough...

Only had enough time to spend one night in Byron Bay which was no way near enough but this place had a lot of amenities such as a pool, surfboard hire etc. The only downside was that the rooms were so cold and you could not get warm, especially as we were there in autumn time. The bathrooms could have... More

I got a free upgrade to a dorm with a private apartment- kitchen and bathroom. The apartments are really cool, clean and cosy. All the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the outside area is great for meeting people. The place to stay in Byron!

Nice enough hostel, with small but clean rooms. Great outdoor common area for drinking and socialising and nice pool. Amazing place to meet other travellers Good location on the edge of the main town area, easily walkable to all bars, restaurants, shops and beach Staff however treated guests like children not the paying customers that they are. Unacceptable for the... More
