Best hostel I have experienced so far. Great and kind staff in a clean hostel with nice and friendly guests on one of the best locations in Byron bay. The only downside I would mention is the price of organised tours in the area: It's quite expensive...

Lovely en suite room, comfortable bed, had a great sleep. Good kitchen and helpful friendly staff. The Hostel is in the heart of things in Byron. Only overnight but it was a great stay - one of the most relaxed of our trip.

The hostel is in a great position, the staff was very helpful and friendly and all amenities were very clean. I stayed overnight in a 4 bed female dorm, and the whole time I was there in was very quiet and peaceful in the room.
