My friend and I had a wonderful stay. The apartment rooms are really good (for a backpackers).
As far as I'm aware the rooms are cleaned daily (not all that well, but it keeps the place nice).
The apartment, which was two rooms of four with a shared kitchen, bathroom and lounge room, was worth the extra few dollars a night.
It became a bit tiring not being able to relax in the hostel during the day and night because there was always someone sleeping or getting changed in the room etc. (as in any share accommodation). However, in beautiful Byron Bay, having to wander around town all day is not exactly a chore.
The bikes for free use by guests are not great quality so don't count on them and beware of Chace, a Canadian guy on reception, he's a bit of a jerk. But all in all, for a backpackers this is great value for money. No issue with sound and we felt safe (even for two young girls), great location, great facilities, great communal area, almost everyone there is lovely, and there's just a great overall vibe.
