Heaps of activities and right on the beach
Fantastic place to stay, heaps of activities and right next to the beach. I was in a mixed dorm, very clean and comfortable. Excellent kitchen facilities if you want to cook and a free mini-bus to town every hour or so.

Very good hostel chain
Wake Up! is a really good hostel chain. I also stayed at their location in Sydney and this one is very well run as well. They have events such as free wine and cheese night. I had a private room which was nice because it had a sink in the room. The location is a little far from the town center, but they have shuttles running back and forth all day long. Overall, I'd recommend the place.

Good stay, enjoy the surf and bring earplugs!
There were chairs right outside our room which the staff and others used before 8 to video chat with people which was super annoying. One night because we were on the way to the kitchen a girl tried to climb through our window, I don’t see this as a hostel issue just a strange experience. The bike and surfboards being free hire was awesome! Their pancake breakfast is super slow, they need a flat top grill or to use the bbqs with a flat grill on them for it. It was too slow and stopped all other kitchen traffic. More cold storage would be ideal too. This hostel is giant for having only one kitchen.
James, ca6 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Stayed in a private room and overall disappointed given the amount we paid for the stay. Pros: beautifully decorated common areas. Regular free shuttles into Byron. Free bike hire. Nice laid back atmosphere in the hostel. Cons: Really expensive! Shared bathrooms were pretty dirty - blocked toilets, loo roll all over the shower cubicles etc. Ants everywhere in our room! Tried to go to reception to ask for some bug spray but no one was there for over 20 mins so we just left it (that was in the late evening). Overall for the price (For a private double room) i’d go somewhere else in Byron.
