Everything you need for your trip. Great location and you'll meet loads of great people. We wanted a place that was close to everything and we found the right place. Dexter was a great help throughout our stay and gave us loads of tips on what to do to maximise our time. Would recommend for sure

Good kitchen but shame it wasn't equipped. Nice size room and social area. Great outdoors social area. Good deposit facilities and good at advertising events! And close...

Had an amazing time at this hostel. Convenient amenities, clean facilities, and very friendly staff, especially Rob. Rob went out of his way to welcome us and even showed us around to some local restaurants. One day Rob and Pat went with us to macadamia castle nearby, we had a blast feeding the birds and goats. Beware the rooster walking...

Thankyou for having me again! I recommend this great hostel to...

I was going to be working during my time here so wanted somewhere sociable but where I could also get a good nights sleep. Holiday Village met all the criteria! It had an area in the middle where you could go and...

Me and a friend stayed for almost two weeks here, and it was awesome. The apartments are spacious and clean. The location is superb, as it is quiet at night and yet a short 10 min walk to the beach. You can also rent bikes, boggie boards and surfboards in the hostel for free. It's also a very social hostel...

I stayed here with a few friends over the Christmas/New Year period and we couldn't have been happier with the hostel. We had plenty of BBQs by the pool, and especially enjoyed the Hostel BBQ - all food included for $10! Such a good location - only a short walk to town and the beach, plus its right across the...

Friendliest staff ever. Pat was the worlds best bus driver. Leah, Dan, Sam also really awesome. The BBQ was the highlight for sure there was burgers and hot dogs and chips and salad and beets and corn and potato salad all for just 10$!!! And then there's the sweet pool. Lounge chairs and tons of room to hang out. Overall...

Holiday Village is in the perfect location - beaches, bars, shops and restaurants are all in easy walking distance! The hostel has a great vibe and friendly staff. The facilities were all top notch including clean bathrooms as well as access to bikes and surfboards. Definitely the best place to stay in Byron Bay!
