Trudi Anderson thinks…

"Awesome location... the cafe and bistro on either side are sensational. Ammeneties are clean and above average... great hot showers! Best of all you are seconds from the beach."

Liked: Close to Belongil Beach, nearby Tree House restaurant and coffee shop were awesome, cheap board hire and daily activities were great (including movie night and sunrise trip to the light house). The shuttle service into town was helpful, kitchens were awesome with lots of room and tonnes of seating. Also lots of bathrooms - I never had to wait to shower or use a washroom. They have items for purchase available (chocolate bars, chips, alcohol), and decent reception hours. The hostel was very clean and staff were helpful and friendly.

Disliked: I would stay here again and liked the location, but it wasn't easy to meet people. The manager had given special approval to an older woman staying in our 8 bed dorm, to have a dog in the room and it was well-behaved but we had to be aware of it and often part of the room would be closed off to keep the dog inside. It was a 20-25 minute walk along the beach to the main village area or about 15-20 minutes by road (not well-lit through parts of it at night), which is okay if you plan around it but helpful to know in advance! This hostel also requires a deposit for kitchen utensils (cutlery, bowls/cups/plates) and wi-fi is expensive.

Liked: It's very relaxed & friendly, not a party hostel which is a welcome relief in Byron although it's still sociable & plenty of cheap or free activities on offer so meeting people is easy. The reception staff were beyond friendly. The wood burning stove and piano in the common room are amazing & make the place seem so homely. It's quiet at night so you get a good night sleep & they run shuttle buses into town if you want to go out (last one is around 9pm though). Free bike hire is available. Everything feels very safe as you need your room key to get in just about everywhere and the bathrooms were of a decent standard. Right on the beach too which is great.

Disliked: Honestly, nothing. Some people might complain that it's not very central but this didn't bother me at all as it's right on the beach and only takes 15 minutes to walk to town.

Liked: Staff were very friendly, quirky hostel which was in keeping with Byron Bay. Free bikes to hire. Hostel right on the beach. Cool BBQ area to chill out. Free shuttle several times a day in to town and to main bus stop.

Disliked: Having to go outside to the toilet areas is a pain if it's raining or in the night.

Liked: Great atmosphere at this hostel, close to the beach (20sec walk), Great offers (Pizzanight, Quiznight, Pancakebreakfast), Shuttlebus to the sunrise at the lighthouse, everything was clean, 2 hour bikehire for free per day, shuttlebus to the city, you are allowed to drink your own alcohol....it's a great hostel and i would recommend it for an awesome stay in byron bay.

Disliked: 20 minute walk to the city (last shuttlebus 8:30 pm), common area closes at 11 pm, The fridge was way to cold (everything was frozen...apple, milk, yoghurt..), Most of the hot plates didnt work.

Liked: It had great free bike rental, it was just across the road from a amazing beach, the tree house café attached is the best pizza in town, and there are plenty of places to hang out in hammocks around the hostel

Disliked: They don't mention anywhere that the bikes are only 2hrs for free, not that they charged for longer use, but the staff got angry when we returned it after having it for 3hrs...although we weren't told till after we took them out that it was only 2hrs. Silly rule
