Thomas Preston thinks…

"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."

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!

Liked: hammocks! It's really far away from town but they offer a free shuttle to town and back every hour and the beach is very empty and clean. Free tour to the lighthouse to see the sunrise, definitely worth i! Also nice walk to see wallabies.

Liked: Really nice atmosphere and common room area. The resort literally a stones throw from the beach which was quaint, and a short walk from the busier main beach and town. The staff were really helpful and honest with booking trips, we wanted to go kyaking but unfortunately the weather was too windy, the girl on the desk called the company to enquire before we booked it so avoided any issues. The free bus into town and drop off/pick up was really handy. Individual crockery meant people seemed more willing to wash up after themselves so the kitchen was always quite tidy.

Disliked: No free wifi

Liked: 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.

Disliked: Harsh Splendour terms and conditions... we had to pay for a bed that went unused when someone couldn't make it (even with a months notice).

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.
