Two night stay for a wedding in town
Very reasonable

Clean, Friendly with Youthful Vibes
We stayed for 2 nights on the 3rd floor. Very happy with the room, shower and bed. Lift was great, friendly staff on the counter when checking in / out and asking about parking as there is street parking meters which we didn't see when we first arrived. (no ticket though) Friday night was noisier than Saturday but to be expected in a backpacking accom. We enjoyed the youthful vibe it gave. Love the area - One does wonder about the conditions of the roads in Byron Bay Generally.

Alice, au2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Stayed in en-suite double room - great shower and comfortable bed. Room has a smart TV but the WiFi wasn’t strong enough for Netflix to work. Communal kitchen and living areas are really nice.

Great stay in Byron Bay
Good hostel and a relaxing stay! Rooms are spacious and comfy, with good lockers! Faculties are excellent with a great kitchen and pool. I hired a bike for $8 and it was a great way to explore the town and the beach.

Would recommend
First time staying in a hostel. Private rooms were good. Basic but clean. Good facilities. Great location. Hostel was fairly quiet, this would reflect the time of the year. Overall good value for money!
Jodie, gb2 night trip

Great Place, not one for communal living but this was a nice experience. The en-suite female dorm was very comfortable, and the group guest experiences were great. There was a BBQ night and a Pizza night, I went on a snorkle trip at a discount thanks to the YHA. I did laundry and cooked my own food, It is great for long term travelers. Sure you have to pay extra for WiFi in your room, but in my mind, equal to a bottle of wine to last you a few days.. money well spent.
