Basically a good hostel with some basic flaws
This is a good choice if you find yourself in Byron Bay. The location is excellent with a large Woolworths supermarket practically on the doorstep, it is spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly and efficient, and there's a nice big pool to relax by/in. The negative issues are the lack of in dorm lockers, and the fact you have to pay high rates to use Wi-Fi and day storage lockers, which demonstrates a degree of contempt for guests, especially when so many backpackers hostels offer free Wi-Fi these days. The strict 10 a.m. checkout is also a pain. If it wasn't for these issues I would have rated it five stars.

  Stayed in this hostel in March. It's ok but not the best ever. The pool looked quite grimy when we arrived but a few days later I think it had been cleaned. We were in a four bed dorm right near the entrance to the hostel and opposite the bbq area so it wasn't the most quiet room in the hostel. The room also had no air con and unfortunately didn't benefit at all from the lovely sea breeze because of the layout of the hostel. We would've loved to stay in a double but it was too expensive $90! Did get a glimpse of one though and am glad we didn't pay out as they were rather bare, had its own toilet but you still had to share the showers -- not worth the $90! The kitchen's a good size and the TV room usually had a movie on -- just a pity the rooms weren't that great.

  Stayed here in 2001, have things changed that much? When I stayed it was fantastic, best hostel kitchen I have ever seen, great atmosphere, lovely pool. Hope its still the same.

  This was the worst hostel we had the misfortune of staying in during our stay in NSW. How they can describe this place as clean is beyond us as our room was infested with cockroaches. Not just one or two, dozens of them all over the place. It was extremely noisy and massively overpriced for the bare and cramped room and we didn't get one bit of help or even a smile from the grumpy staff. The manager was even very rude to our faces. Not one good thing to say about this place apart from its good location.

  Not the best YHA in Oz, but nothing particularly wrong with it. Kitchen was clean enough and decent sized pool. But a fair amount of money for what you get.

  I stayed here for four days. I had to buy bleach and disinfectant, as the bathroom probably had not been cleaned for a while. Also we had a cockroach infestation in our room. Other than this, the location is good, the kitchen is fine, and the pool area nice. Staff are friendly. Maybe we are just too demanding, hence the 2 stars!

  Awesome hostel! It has great people, it's relatively clean, and it's close to the beach!
