    Probably one of the best hostels in Australia. I have nothing bad to say. Amazing staff! I have never witnessed such a kind staff who also remembered and called me by my first name! Book here and you won't regret it.

    the team at Cape Byron couldn't have been more helpful or friendly or accommodating and its in a great location :)

    Karen W. (November 2014)

    Staff very helpful. As above the location was superb, both town and beach no more than 5 minutes from hostel. The hostel was quiet after 11pm and all rooms by next week will have secure lockers.

    Overall, I've enjoyed my time staying at Cape Bryon YHA. It definitely made me meet new people and become more independent. The atmosphere of the place was brilliant. It was great to share a room with different people and get to know all of them! And...

    Christine P. (October 2014)

    Very chill, lots of activities, super friendly and helpful staff. Wifi is terrible, though, and only available in the common room (if you can connect at all, that is...)

    Fabian S. (October 2014)

    Great staff and clean rooms and bathrooms!

    Claire L. (September 2014)
