Modern hostel, close to town

Stayed in Byron for one night for a gig at the Northern and the YHA was ideal. Clean, well presented, modern and tidy, it’s an easy 10 min walk from the centre of town. All for an excellent price. Not sure if it would suit longer stays as, being a hostel, it lacks some of the in room facilities of hotels; fridge, iron etc, but perfect for a weekend or short visit

Modern and simple

New room with modern and simple style. Clever idea to use small stool as bedside table. We use it to put our shower stuffs in the shower room. However, it would be more convenient if there’s a desk under TV. Double bed is good size for people who under 170cms tall. Wall Fan is practical but not quiet match the room style. Would love to stay next time.

Pros: The drinking times around the pool. Such a cool idea and best way to relax before going out
Cons: My doona felt a little dirty and I noticed they didnt get us to bring it down for cleaning with the rest of our sheets at check out
Love the toys/boards/balls kept at the pool to kill time with! Also super close to everything but not so close you cant get any sleep. Perfect locatio

Pros: Nice and relaxed during the day, but there was also plenty of activities offered.
If you feel like going out, the nightlife's quite close by but the backpackers is also removed enough from the main street to provide peace and quiet.
