Really enjoyed my two nighs at this hostel. Room was lovely and bathrooms were clean. The staff were friendly at there is a good atmosphere there. Hostel nights at cheeky monkeys are brilliant. Free bike hire is also really good.

5 minute walk to town, few more to the beach. So much stuff available to hire such as bikes and boards. Staff are uber friendly! Very helpful. Rooms are very good, working fans. Kitchen is huge! $10 for BBQ, free club entry and free drink in the club. Very reasonable and a perfect way to meet new people. Would recommend to everyone and everyone who stayed there said exactly the same thing.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really liked it. The place is cosy, nice and clean at a good rate plus you get picked up from greyhound and there's free wifi and free surf board hire! Good location opposite of Cheeky Monkeys as well - everything you need ! The only thing to critizise would be that the rooms are quite small and there are only four bed dorms. Still I would go back there for sure!

This is a very loud Party Hostel which at this time i was not after but was willing to deal with it anyway as we turned up late. All in all however they did a good job in keeping the Party well away from some of the accommodation.

My only real complaint was the room which is more like a flat share with shared kitchen. Two bedrooms shared kitchen an Bathroom. No pots or pans whatsoever, no microwave or kettle for $100. Apparently you can leave a deposit...

Also, expect the staff to come and upsell things going on in an around the hostel when your in your room. I've experienced this before at some Hostels but usually in communal areas.

Twice a member of staff used a key to enter our flat and one time even entered our room when we were sleeping. He then went ahead to ask us if we wanted to go to the BBQ going on that night.

I found this to be completely unacceptable. When in any sort of accommodation a certain amount of privacy is warrant. Here Obviously not.

I stayed at this hostel at the end of January this year. It was great, super friendly staff. It's a great set up, with the main area being right in the middle of all the rooms. Good party pretty much every night! I'll stay there next time I'm in Byron for sure!

I stayed in an appartment (own kitchen, fridge, tv, balcony, bathroom) with 1 doubleroom and 1 4-bed room. It was clean and quiet big. Near to the hostel is a supermarket + bottle shop and you can BYO alcohol to the hostel :) the beach is little bit far but you can walk there about 15min. They have a free pick up to the hostel from the greyhound busstation.

Room Tip: The rooms in the "appartments" are vetry nice.

We stayed here for three nights in a double room which was more than fine for our needs. We were in one of the apartments and the room next to ours has 4 beds, so six in the apartment and we shared a bathroom, kitchen and lounge area. The room only has a fan so could get quite hot at night but the windows all have nets up so you can leave windows open as well. The kitchen wasn't fantastically equipped but it was okay. You have to rent crockery from the reception at $1 an item but you get it back on return.
The hostel runs various social nights, including an all you can eat BBQ for $10 and it was really good! I would recommend doing it, I was even fussy with my burger and they left it on the BBQ until I was happy, which was really nice of them. The price also includes a free drink across the road at one of the bars.
As we were in an apartment, we tended to socialise with the people in the apartment rather than gather on the large benches outside the kitchen but it was always busy. The apartments are much quieter.
The staff were really nice and make you aware of everything on check in, they even let us use facilities after we checked out as we were waiting for a bus.
If you wanted wifi, it is only available during reception hours during the office.
I would recommend staying here and would be happy to stay here again.
