“Hippie Hostel”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

The hostel has a cool vibe its very hippie like byron bay, nice outside area with pool and hammocks and then a private trail that leads to the beach. The rooms are ok and basic, unfortunately my room was by the entrance where everyone lingered before they went out, impossible to sleep as its so noisy. There arnt many showers either so you find yourself waiting for that and dont bother with wifi its expensive and barely works.

We were a group of 5 girls and stayed in room 37 which had a great balcony facing Shirley street.

The hostel is clean and chilled out, I've stayed a few times before and am always happy to come back.

Excellent beach access too.

This is defiantly the best hostel I've stayed at in Australia! Staying here improved my experience in Byron bay! I had the best time. Short distance to the beach and to the centre, walked to Woolworth almost everyday, no problem!

I also lost my passport and got a lot of help from David! They gladly sent it to my hostel in cairns.

I stayed here for over a month and i have to say it's my favorite of all the hostels i've been to, both in oz and nz. The staff is nice, the rooms are clean, it's right on the beach and the vibe is amazing. 90% of my friends from my trip i've met here. Byron is amazing and BPI is the place to stay!
