Reviews of YHA Byron Bay

  • "The common spaces are very comfortable. The location is perfect. I stayed in a private room and I loved the details. It had its own kettle, cups, some tea and coffee. Also, things for the shower. Everything is excellent :)" - Lenka
  • "Paradise. Did not want to leave. My favourite hostel in Australia so far, the social areas were great, the pool was perfect and the staff were exceptionally nice. Place has a really homely feel to it. We were also lucky enough to get a room with en-suite (4 bed) which was exceptional." - Stefan
