The hostel provided a shuttle bus from the greyhound which was very useful, the member of staff pointed out places to go in Byron whilst driving to the hostel. On arrival, I was...

I was here for 2 nights. The hostel is very good and there is everything you need. Free wifi, free computer, a good kitchen, a very nice courtyard with hammocks, chairs, beach volley field, pool and private access to the beach. The price was good for Christmas and compared with another hostel I was. The staff is very nice and...

2 of us stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. There were organised activities (great for meeting people!), everyone was so friendly and nice, the rooms were smallish but clean and there were lockers, wifi etc. Had some trouble with the kitchen at peak times - not enough fridge space/saucepans etc, and no one actually told us we...

One of my favourite hostels as I travelled up the East Coast. The staff are amazing and the hostel has a good vibe with social nights and a well facilitated kitchen for cooking your own meals etc. At one point on my trip I was quite poorly and the staff consistently asked me how I was and offered advice -...

Hostel is right by the beach and about a 10 min walk from town. Shuttle bus service available from greyhound stop which was nice. Staff who picked us up were nice, some reception staff were a little stressy and didn't make you feel too welcome. Rooms basic, but clean and comfortable. Kitchen too small for the amount of guests and...

Traveling solo I loved staying at the Backpackers Inn. From the girl who picked me up at the bus station offering to walk wait for me to go to dinner to the super friendly folks at the front desk and travel desk... Everyone was genuinely nice and that translated to the guests too. Otherwise.. it's a Backpackers hostel with all...
