The best hostel in Byron
Liked: Perfect location - beach and the cafe is very close. Free shuttle bus to the town. Good facilities, very modern and clean rooms. I really enjoyed having a spa bath in my room.
Disliked: Really nothing. Maybe the little kitchenette in the private rooms with a kettle and a small fridge would be nice touch

Liked: It was across the road from the beach. A beautiful 15 minutes walk to town along the beach. Facilities were great, great kitchen area and common rooms. Staff was lovely. Shower pressure was great and hot! A really great place to stay on a budget when visiting beautiful Byron.
Disliked: Room and shower facilities in the rooms could have been a little cleaner.

Byron Best Backpacker By Far
Liked: The staff are SUPER FRIENDLY, the facilities are very good and well-maintained. The beach is just across the road and there are free bicycles and surf equipment. There is a regular free minivan service that will run you into town in 5 minutes. The kitchen is spacious and there is enough kitchen equipment to service an army. The gardens are beautiful and everything is done just right ??If something is wrong, tell Reception and they will get into it asap.
Disliked: Nothing. It?s absolutely my favourite place to stay in the Bay.

Liked: Location was great, staff extremely friendly and helpful. The use of the free bikes as well as the shuttle was awesome.
Disliked: The room was not as expected, the images seen online when booking were much nicer than the room we were in. The room was small, smelt funky and the bathroom super tiny. Not what we expected after looking at the images of double rooms when booking.

Love the design and layout...
It is a wonderful location and feel with being across the road from the beach and surrounded by bush and next to a cafe/bar. I love the feel - the design and layout. Very clean and nice staff.
I appreciated the free shuttle in to town in the morning.
Disliked: I was happy with everything.

Liked: The location although not in town is a nice beach walk in to the main area that only takes about 15 mins. It is directly across from the beach so great for sunny days and spending time on the beach.The outside common area is nice and plenty of wildlife float around. The lights in the area go off at 10pm every night which can be frustrating especially weekend nights. I didnt use the kitchen much but the facilities were good and mainly very clean at all times with plenty of fridges and storage space.The bathrooms/showers were also clean too. The shuttle bus to town is a fantastic service and operates really well.The staff on check in and around the hostel were friendly and generally nice and polite. Although I didn't have a vehicle there was ample amount of parking around the hostel.The tree house next door is very nice and well worth the visit!
Disliked: The bed clothes on my bed whilst they were clean they were very very old. They had stains and had clearly been ready for the bin a long time ago. As many of the people live in the hostel I found the atmosphere there quite clicky and not very sociable, people were in their groups and not willing to talk to new people. Spaces and plugs in the common areas were occupied by the same people everyday and it was sometimes a case of 'where shall I sit to read my book or use my device'. The bicycles are an absolute death trap, the brakes on mine did not work and it constantly jerked and stopped mid cycle. I find it very surprising you can advertise 'free hire' on bikes with non functioning brakes and no bell which is actually illegal in NSW. I would rather pay for a brand new bicycle than hire another one from wake up byron! Someone is going to get seriously hurt some day.
