This hostel really is right on the beach - well about a 30-second walk away across the sand dunes. The bedrooms are big and airy - with very clean and comfy beds. They also provide lockers - A must for any decent hostel. If you're not planning on going out clubbing/drinking and you're here over a weekend a pair of...

I really enjoyed staying in this hostel. Prove of this is that I originally planned to stay only 3 nights but ended up staying a month. I only moved out because I found a studio to move into. A big plus for this hostel is the location. It's almost on the beach and a small gate in the backyard gives...

This hostel was really amazing. I stayed here for 2 nights and I would've loved to stay longer. The bathrooms were pretty good, mostly clean. The staff was always very nice and the atmosphere in general was really amazing. So relaxed and there was a nice backyard with hammocks, and beach is right in front of the hostel, which is...

Good location with private access to the beach. There´s different activities at the hostel everyday which is a good way to make friends! The only bad thing is that the wifi was working on and off, and it was not working in the room. Otherwise I would recommend this hostel especially to backpackers. They also arrange pick up and drop...

We stayed here last night because we couldn't get into our overpriced villa on the beach because their careless staff sent us the wrong code which meant we couldn't access the key, anyway, that's another review! Initially we were hopeful of gaining access to our villa and asked if we could charge our phones at the backpackers, they allowed us...

This was a great chilled out hostel for very friendly people. The common area was very open and relaxing. The kitchen and rooms were cleaned every day. The hostel is right next to the beach and around a 10 minute walk from the centre. I would def stay here again.

We stayed here as part of the a Surf School package. Despite the hostel being very busy, especially adjoined to the School, we had a very pleasant and quiet night's sleep which was appreciated after our long bus journey! The staff were very pleasant, the kitchen was large enough, the whole place is open planned and airy. The rooms were...

I really enjoyed my week stay at this hostel, the kitchen was super clean, right on the beach, staff were very helpful and rooms were clean and spacious. Hair dryers were also available to use for free which was a great bonus!! Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, Walking distance to the core of Byron Bay but far enough away to relax. Easy access to the beach made this one of the best places we stayed. Pool was clean and rooms were good. If you have a car this is probably the best hostel to stay at in Byron Bay because its simple to get to...

The staff and wifi was alright. The hostel is bacically on the beach, just a short walk. The room was quite big and the reception hours was good. No place for your food in the fridge. Not the best, not the worst.
