  • Liked: Staff & service

It was loud at night from the neighboring brewery. The double rooms on the ground floor had little natural light and were very narrow. The opening of the room door was very cumbersome to open with an app and mobile phone. The app often did not work because the WIFI reception was very bad. The manual code entry was bad. But the Pool was awesome.

Too noisy, specially during the night. It's hard to fall sleep when the guests party until late night

A cute, homey and cosy community

Stayed for 3 nights as part of a solo trip. Overall stay was great! Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Lots of fun activities everyday, open space, kitchen area and awesome pool. Stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm, smaller than expected but the bed was super comfortable. I didn't sleep too well the first night as it was really cold but the reception is happy to provide extra comfy blankets for free. In terms of the cleanliness - its not as disgusting/dirty as some of the other reviews claim and is pretty much what you expect from a backpacker hostel full of young adults. The workers do a great job of consistently cleaning the toilets and showers every morning. My biggest complaint would be the noise levels at night, but again its to be expected with the Byron night life/party scene and isn't necessarily the hostel's fault. Also, its a 10 minute walk from the town but they do provide a shuttle service in the day. Overall a great stay and would recommend as an affordable place to stay with good vibes!

The Expedia site said there was a hot tub , THERE IS NO HOT TUB , the shower drain clogged up and I had water filling up the shower floor like a bath tub all The hooks to Hang your towels on the back of the door we’re broken, no where dry or clean to put your clean stuff after you have your shower ... I was told I could stay for $15 a night if I pay a week stay on check in , then when I checked out and confirm the $15 per night for 7 nights stay 2ic said no that’s wrong and I had to inform her I was told this on check in. And on top of all That when I went to go check out and explained all this to the 2ic she had a rude attitude about all this and said what do you expect me To do about all this... will never stay again and would not recommend to anyone, I usually do reviews but I can’t do one on this place as it would be a bad review And I rather talk to 2ic so they can improve on these things
