I only booked for the room cos it was cheap but was surprised at the friendliness of staff, the convenience to the town and beach it was really only walking distance and you certainly wouldn't want to drive cos walking is such a better experience .. ...

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...

Had a fantastic time exploring the area and a comfortable room to come back to! From the range of shops selling handmade treats or an eclectic mix of clothes, to the array of cafés, bars and restaurants, you're rarely at a loss for something to do in Byron Bay and that's before I even mention the excellent beaches! Staying less than a ten minute stroll from all the above makes it even better!
