    I have stayed at Cape Byron YHA three times during the past year. It's a great hostel! The rooms are clean, the kitchen is good and the staff is the best ever :) Perfect location, just a 3 minute walk to the beach. Don't miss the free tour to the light house! I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

    The Hostel was nice, I would stand out the service of the staff. I would have some problems with skydiving booking and they would help me once and another, thanks! I was lucky with my roomates, and would recommend others to go.

    Brilliant location and friendly staff. Price is the cheapest you'll find for the reasonable level of quality. All round a good place to stay.

    Friendly and convenient location. Snorkelling at Julian Rocks was a highlight and easily arranged at the dive store next door.

    Really well located hostel,beach within walking distance, aldi around the corner, surf school and surfboard hiring 10m away (black dog surf school is awesome).. If you want to spend nice and relaxing days in Byron, go for it. Kitchen and bathrooms could be renewed, more fridges could be helpful but in general it's a nice place. Free wifi isn't that good but still ok. Nice beds

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
