    This is a nicely placed hostel in the centre of Byron Bay close to the beach. We stayed in a double en- suite room that was comfortable and quiet. It had a fridge and large TV. There is also tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The management is friendly and the free walking tour to the lighthouse is highly recommended. Todd was very informative and can spot a manta-ray at 100 metres from the rocks. On the tour we saw wonderful views, rays, turtles, lizards, bush turkeys and swap wallabies. There were several whales in the sea and dolphins surfing the waives into shore - fascinating and unbelievable to see. The hostel has decent FREE wifi in the lounge and while we were there they are refurbishing the rooms. We were also told that soon there'll be wifi throughout the premises. In any case this is a good friendly place to stay and well placed for Byron Bay and the beaches of Cape Byron.

    Great location, close to the beach and everything else. Great dive shop attached. Wifi was ok. The signal is strong enough to reach some rooms but when more than a few people logged on very slow- but this seems to be an issue across the country. Hostel was really good at keeping noise to a minimum after 11pm so those of us with early mornings could get sleep.

    Byron Bay is an amazing city und perfect for relaxing. I would recommend this hostel only for the australian summer, because its really cold there. The staff is overall really friendly and helpful, free wifi and lighthouse tour is an advantage of this hostel.

    Great location, friendly staff, value for money but very noisy at night even after 11pm, people were talking loudly, a few screaming throughout the night and wall/door knocking from midnight til about 3-4am on both nights I stayed there. Will not stay here again. Prefer the Byron Bay YHA honestly.
