    probably the best place to stay in Byron
    Sam G August 2015
    Loved our stay here 😊 location was perfect, friendly staff and great facilities. We loved taking the bikes out to explore and the movie night was perfect for a quiet night in and meet new people. Thank you, would definitely recommend to others.

    As Aquairius and nomads do not accomadate children, this was a great experience for father and son holiday. Clean friendly and I would totally recommend. Kitchen and activities really well organised. Didn't expect this from a hostel, as we normally stay in resorts.
    Joel S August 2015
    Great hostel, good bathrooms, perhaps a tv room, unless there was one I didn't see. Perhaps a bed light would be useful. Except for these minor comments, for a hostel, couldn't fault it!

    I enjoyed the stay in this hostel, especially the bathrooms are amazing. Definitely go here if you want to have a good time!
    Debbie W August 2015
    Loved the hostel and the atmosphere here. Really friendly and helpful staff, would be good if there was an individual light next to the bed but overall it was fantastic! I want to come back!

    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.
