“Convenient and very comfortable”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This is a very conveniently located hostel in Bryon and was perfect for the Blues Fest - bus stop across the street. Beach out the back gate and over the sand dune. Very helpful and accommodating management.. Clean and well run. Nice mixed crowd of guests.

Big hostel with nice communal areas. Rooms are pretty basic but clean and does the job. Some of the dorms have balconies which is nice. Really friendly staff, especially Nat and the guy in the travel desk. Best thing about this hostel though is definately its proximity to the beach. Theres direct access from the hostel down onto the most beautiful beach, just perfect! You'll have a great stay here! Xx

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.
