This 'holiday village' is located at the very end of the road leading into Byron. It'll take you 10-15 minutes to walk to the beach from here through the local shops. There's a Woolworths 2 minutes away and the local bar/restaurant 'Cheeky Monkey's' across the road. Our stay was just OK. Positives: - Free rental of surfboards (just a refundable...

Without a doubt, one of the best hostels in Australia!! If you are visiting Byron Bay make sure you stay here! I stayed here for over 4 months and had an amazing time.. free surf boards and bikes to rent every day. Very clean rooms and communal areas. A fantastic pool to chill out on a hot day, and only...

The hostel obviously has the bonus of being in a great location of a beautiful part of Australia. Besides the obvious, the communal area was great for making friends and having drinks. With staff doing a good job of getting everyone involved. The rooms were kept in good conditions and the showers/toilets having no issues. The kitchen was well equipped...

Everything you need for your trip. Great location and you'll meet loads of great people. We wanted a place that was close to everything and we found the right place. Dexter was a great help throughout our stay and gave us loads of tips on what to do to maximise our time. Would recommend for sure

Good kitchen but shame it wasn't equipped. Nice size room and social area. Great outdoors social area. Good deposit facilities and good at advertising events! And close...

Had an amazing time at this hostel. Convenient amenities, clean facilities, and very friendly staff, especially Rob. Rob went out of his way to welcome us and even showed us around to some local restaurants. One day Rob and Pat went with us to macadamia castle nearby, we had a blast feeding the birds and goats. Beware the rooster walking...

Being my second time staying at the backpacker village, I still have nothing bad to say about it. The apartments are great, the staff are friendly, the facilities are clean, location is great, walk to the beach is short, deposits for everything; bikes, surfboards, cutlery (nothing actually costs money)! Thankyou for having me again! I recommend this great hostel to...

After trying a few hostels in the Byron Bay Area I eventually settled on staying at Holiday Village. I was going to be working during my time here so wanted somewhere sociable but where I could also get a good nights sleep. Holiday Village met all the criteria! It had an area in the middle where you could go and...
