“My home away from home!”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

Holiday Village in Byron Bay is an amazing hostel to stay at. It is really close to Main Beach and all of the shops, and also has free rental for surf boards, boogie boards, and bikes. There is so much to do as well as it has a pool, volleyball courts, a basketball court, and picnic tables where everyone hangs around. Twice a weeks they host an all you can eat BBQ too, which I would recommend. Everyone comes together and has drinks and food around the table before you head to the bar all together at night. I ended up staying here for a month and a half with my boyfriend and we loved our experience. Marc the owner became like family to us, as well as all of the rest of the long term backpackers and staff working here. If you are coming to Byron Bay, defiantly look into this hostel! We loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: Apartment style rooms are a great deal, have a bit of privacy, and a bit quieter around back.

Really good hostel, had an awesome week here together with my friend. Recommended by another friend and werent dissapointed. Just across Cheeky, fun nights and during the day a little bit of surfing (with the free board use) and laying on the beach.
Going back here for christmas as well!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the ''appartment ones'', because the dorms (4 people) were full...

Wasn't planning on writing a review, but after reading about my fellow countrymans experience I thought I'd write my thoughts nonetheless...

Wasn't planning on going to Byron, and when we got there all beds in the whole town were taken (apparently it gets crowded in the week ends...) including the ones at the Holiday village. I think they felt sorry for us, because they let us have the TV room for only half the price, which was excellent. The next day, we got a room and it was all good.

They've got pretty much everything you need. Internet is included, surfbords for loan etc. Saw a washer, but didn't use it. Basketball court, volleyball, pool, kitchen all there.Also a nightguard in place making sure there's no noise, but there was some coming from the streets (was a saturday though...) Other than that, good vibes and good times.

Let the hoogy doogy song commence...;)

Me and my buddy arrived in late October on a recommendation from a few buddies that stayed at the hostel. We were not disappointed. Marc and his staff are such kind and friendly people we felt like it was home as soon as we arrived. The rooms were well kept and the kitchen and bathroom's were great. A 2 minute walk to a grocery store is very convenient as well for the days that you just want to pick up a few things. Can't wait to get back to Byron for a longer stay!

Room Tip: Our room location was great and farther away from the "action" where people were drinking...

Hired an ensuite double room for 4 nights from Thursday to Monday.
Was informed that the rate was 100 dollar pr night, and when we arrived it had went up to 110 dollar.

Asked them if it was noisy at night, and we were informed that it closed down at 10:30 and every one was asked to go out or be quit - this didnt happen.

When complaining to one of the staff about it, asking them if they could ask people to be a bit quiet, I was just informed that this is Byron Bay and I just have to expect it and, the staff was paid so poorly so they couldnt look after all 200 hundred that stayed there. Very strange way to respond to my request.

However, the rooms are clean and it is a good location.

We stayed here as a couple in October. We were only suppose to stay for 3 nights but ended up staying 12! We stayed in a self contained apartment at the back of the property. It had its own kitchen and private bathroom. It had a really nice chilled out atmosphere with friendly staff. We would recommend this place for people looking for budget accommodation in a great location.
