    So many communal spaces to chill out and meet new friends. Cozy couches by the fire, big booths, and an awesome bench for breakfast in the sun. Check the activities board on your way through reception. Confession; I loved the Stoner Surprise!

    Very nice people in the hostel and the staff is nice as well, especially the driver! The bush walk is good but the guy who does them is weird. Still a very good hostel with chilled Byron vibe! Loved it!
