Liked: Great hostel located right in the centre of Byron bay! The hostel was very well clean and organised, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and gave great advice on what's best to do in Byron! The rooms were clean, fresh bedding and duvet which was lovely after a full day at the beach. Great bathroom faculties - again clean and everything you would need for a private shower. Would recommend this hostel to anybody. Aldi and other shops are two seconds around the corner which is also great if you need to buy food and other bits.

Disliked: I wish there had been plug sockets so that top bunks could charger over night, however you could plug you phone in and place it in a secure locker to ensure your valuables could be charged safely overnight

Liked: Good location with parking underneath. Girls on the front desk were super helpful.

Disliked: We stayed here on New Year's Eve, but this was a very bad choice. There was a massive party in the courtyard which people off the street came to. There was vomit in all the bathrooms and wash basins the next morning. It was literally the grossest thing I've ever seen. The carpets were old and stained. This is a party hostel full of mainly 18 year olds. If you are older than 19 than you probably wont enjoy this hostel. However, props to the poor hostel staff who had to clean up all the vomit from all the bathrooms the next day, which they had done by 9am.

Liked: We had a room for 6 people and the beds were comfortable and it had our own shower.

Disliked: The hallways really smelt, like dampness or old clothes or something similar. The staff were quite confused about our booking too.

Liked: the rooms were spacious, you can actually hang out in them. Kitchen and picnic tables are also nice

Disliked: If you don't have roomates its hard to meet people to do things with. The staff doesn't promote any drinking games or bar hops together like some of the other hostels do.

Liked: Loved that you had the option of private king rooms because you could have privacy but still enjoy the atmosphere.

Disliked: Our room had a very damp smell. I also found it strange that we paid for a private king room and there was no way we could have a friend stay with us for a night even if we paid extra

Liked: I really liked the location and the shower.

Disliked: I disliked the cleanliness of the bathroom and the room. The lift was out of order all the time of my stay and any one help w/ the luggage. I had to pay 5 dollars for use one towel and for me this price is completely absurd.
