Liked: Almost everything

Disliked: Rude male staff member working night shift on Sunday night. We came back after Splendour, have to admit after a few beers. My friends tried to check in but had accidentally booked the wrong night - Monday instead of Sunday. He said there were no rooms in the hostel even though we had a spare bed in our room. He could find room, if they pay double. They were refunded the next morning by lovely staff however, the hostility/rudeness received by one staff negatively impacted on our otherwise perfect experience.

Disliked: - the loud music play all the tme except night time- the speaker just beside the room - the kitchen too small, not enought basin and kitchen stove. It is dirty even though there are staff try to clean in certain time - the furniture in the lounge are too old and seem dirty

Liked: The rooms and the bathrooms were nice and clean. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and the staff were super helpful. The overall vibe was super relaxed and the amenities were good.

Disliked: Not too sure whether it's just Byron in general, but the internet connection wasn't great. I know that some of the other backpackers were also disappointed that some of the lockers in the rooms were broken and weren't able to be locked.
