The hostel is simple but check everything you need when you are in Byron, clean, good staff, possibility to go on tours (even if i never booked one), rent surfing boards ect. Wifi is there but the range is limited which is actually a good thing because people tend to socialize more with each other. You can also go for...

This is by far one of the best, if not the best, hostels I've ever stayed at. A few positive attributes: • So much is included: From bike rentals to surf board rentals, it's all included. You just need a deposit. •Community building layout: The entire hostel is formed around the common area, which consists of several wooden picnic tables,...

The sunrise Tour with Nathan up at the lighthouse was great! Nathan showed us all these beautiful spots and was a great tour guide. The staff at backpackers holiday village in general is great! Nathan, Sharif, Cameron, Jacob and Patrick always helped out when I needed help and also were really cool to hang out with. The staff couldn't be...

I had a great stay and the staff was great. The staff spent time socializing when they weren't working making making it awesome for a solo traveller. Rob was awesome. He even put his shirt on at the beach so girls would pay attention to other people. He even gave a guy free surfing leasons!

Great stay, nice people, great bbq. The big guy Rob was especially nice and handsome and also very nice! He taught me how to surf although I'm convinced he didn't know what surfing was so he just held me in the water.

The most welcoming and friendly hostel in Byron Bay! Me and my boyfriend have just finished spending over two months living at the hostel after falling in love with Byron (we only had two nights booked originally). Every single member of staff are LEGENDS! The hostel is small compared to others in Aus therefore keeps it more personal everyone says...

I originally chose Holiday Village because they offer free surfboards to guests. It costs on average about $20 a day to rent a board in Byron, and as I knew I wanted to surf every day it was an obvious way to save quite a bit of money. It's also conveniently located right next to the best supermarket in town...

Fun and welcoming place to stay! We got upgraded to the apartment style and loved it in there! (I recommend apartment style if you don't want to share bathrooms and kitchen space with more people!) 8 people max. in apartment style and only $3/night extra. The Aussie BBQ hosted was pretty good and great food for only $10 all you...

I recently stayed for 5 nights in this hostel. Our first impressions were fantastic considering it is on the MAIN street of Byron Bay and opposite the best backpacker bar Cheeky Monkeys. Check in was very efficient, friendly and helpful! Be aware that we paid a $40 deposit between two for a shared key and two bed sheets. Our room...
