Liked: Amazing location, great facilities. Nice rooms. Awesome restaurant next door. The town is only 15 minutes walk away but they also offer a free shuttle bus. Kitchen is great. The common room is average, not the best for meeting people but still a big open space. Yoga classes were awesome, staff friendly, I highly recommend the surf lessons!

Disliked: Limited plugs in the room and need more inclusive social activities

Liked: Big rooms! I stayed at a 8 bed dorm room and we had a private bathroom and a seating area. Enough space to put your bags. Only small lockers but that was fine. They offer a lot of things to do as well a shuttle that departs during the day to the centre. Good BBQ night, highly reccomend the yoga classes on the property, nice bar next to it. It feels very relaxed to be here.

Disliked: I disliked the fact you have to pay a deposite for the cuttlery but I guess did do that for a reason. You can't go the toilet before check in and after check out because you need a key.

Liked: The atmosphere, the friendly staff and the authentic interior. It's true what they say about being "100% Byron", it's the obvious stay for a trip to Byron.

Disliked: The location was really beautiful but a bit off, took awhile to get into town.

Liked: Such a great location right on the beach. Everything was clean and there were big common areas/kitchens etc and the staff were super helpful. Would definitely stay again!

Disliked: It's not really a hostel,more of a resort with more private rooms than dorms,so it wasn't particularly friendly,people didn't really talk and not easy to meet other travellers

Liked: Location to the beach, slightly out of the centre of Byron but that makes it a bit quieter which is nice. Free bicycle hire for 2 hours each day which is useful.

Disliked: Door locks - really frustrating and need replacing throughout!

Liked: Very clean and modern, comfy bed and great cooking facilities in teh room to make breakfast and lunch. Loved the location right across from Belongil beach.

Disliked: Not much, some people may not like the fact it was a bit out of town but with a free shuttle bus or a taxi only being $8 or so it didnt bother me and where its situated at Belongil beach is beautiful.

Liked: I loved how colorful and vibrant the hostel was. Everyone and everything seemed so sunny and alive. There were plenty of areas to just hang out in the hammocks and read, or go to the BBQ area and chat with fellow travelers. The kitchen was huge and clean, and stocked with pots, pans, and utensils. I loved the location, as well. Not right in town where there is so much hubbub, but close enough that you can walk there quickly via the beach, which is lovely. Also, since it is a little further out of town you basically have a beach all to yourself.

Disliked: There wasn't much to dislike. They made it very hard to be unhappy here.

Liked: The hostel had an extremely friendly vibe about it which made me feel at home as soon as I got there. It's chilled and although it's a 15 minute walk from town it's right next to the beach and they run (pretty much) hourly shuttle buses into and back from town. So for me it was the perfect location. Free towel hire was another awesome plus which meant I could keep my personal towel clean.

Disliked: They kept cancelling organised events but other than that I thought it was fantastic.

Liked: The vibe and location - beach walk into town and conveniently next to treehouse!

Disliked: From The pictures on hostel bookers I imagined the rooms to be slightly better/more modern than what they were. But that happens often and the room was still fine. So no biggy!
