This hostel backs onto the beach and is ideal of you want to learn how to surf as this is done in house. Our instructor, Jess, was patient and a great teacher. The accommodation is good for a hostel and the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. Good communal facilities. He hostel also offers a minibus service to and...

We stayed here for 1 night, 3 girls in a 4 bed girls only dorm. The hostel is incredibly clean, one of the cleanest I've stayed in in Australia. Toilet blocks and showers are always very clean and most quite modern and showers always powerful and hot! Right on to the beach, a 2 minute walk to the beach and...

The location is great, with a short walk right to the beach. However, the rest of the accommodation leaves a lot to be desired. Bunk beds were old and uncomfortable, showers and bathrooms were dirty. We stayed here during the winter and were given a military style scratchy blanket, not unlike a horse blanket. On the other hand, staff were...

I was recommended this hostel by other travellers I met and I completely agree with them. This hostel was extremely friendly, friendly staff and friendly guests too. The hostel is pretty much on the beach, you walk through the garden out a back gate and you're straight onto the beach. The hostel also has a swimming pool which is ideal...

Within being there for 15 minutes, I knew i'd made a bad decision in only staying for two nights. There are things which could be improved, for example, it's a bit silly that you have to keep going to reception for a wifi code, but not the end of the world! We stayed for 2 nights, having a surf lesson...

Although it was pretty much raining all the time it is an excellent hostel to stay at. Strong WIFI, Pool, Volleyball, bike hire.. all for free. Not even I minute to the beach. Always clean. Super friendly and helpful staff. A couple of minutes away from the city centre and brilliant discounts for everything.

I had an amazing experience at this hostel. So first when I arrived to Byron everything was booked out so I stayed at Nomads (I think I would've slept better on the street); moved on to YHA which is not bad but theres no vibe and having to use the keycard to do anything was a pain in the....

Super clean backpackers with direct access to the beach behind & onsite parking available. Hostel staff were really friendly & had loads of recommendations for eating/drinking out round Byron. Location is about a 10 minute walk from the centre but it's an easy stroll. Showers were spotlessly clean as was our room. There was a bit of a commotion in...
