Its a party hostel. Great if you want to get drunk and have a good time but not for a quiet stay

Ok well as always its always your experience with the hostel that prompts an attitude adjustment. I stayed there for 5 nights and everynight was brillaint upuntill the last one. Definetly if you wanna get drunk, party then this is the place for you, advise you to go at the begining of the week because Cheeky Monkeys (the notorious Coyote bar has a mexican night of did when i went) and obviously its the begining of the week so less busy. Its always about the people who make it luckily i had some brilliant guys untill they left and the last night was...well not good. This hostel don't seem to mind letting in Non international travelers so i had the luxary of spending my last evening with 5 drunk Ozzie lads away for the weekend. As i had an early trip next day it did not help with them coming in drunk but again not really the hostels fault...just hostel life. I will say one thing you will spend alot of money in Byron bay. Reason being of course because its so touristy there are so many food places to eat, you have a subway across the road(which stupidly to my horror does not have a toaster) and the kitchen appliances were god aweful. two hobs between possible atleast 200 guests. I guess its so you are more than likely to buy their resturant food. Erm if your traveling up the coast you've probably discovered how for some reason places get stingier and the fridges get smaller... wel you have to rent your sheets, and theres one fridge between everyone. Please everyone remember this is a year ago since i went things may of changed.

Just like what youd expect with a YHA you get the better class of backpacker...you know the ones that show respect! My room was overlooking the sea. There was a great vibe with the place. The owner/boss man made sure everyone got together and got to knw each other and so gave free meals and we did quiz'z etc.
