A great hostel with friendly staff and lot of things to do.
They organize talents shows, bbq, arts ..........
There`s a cinema, bar, community room, swimming/spa pool.......
Just stay a couple of days/weeks/months.
I`m for sure your relaxed when you leave them again.
I had a couple of days in Byron Bay and didn't spend too much time in the hostel but when I did I met lots of new interesting people and I remember some delicious banana pancakes from the café.
There's always alot going on.
Unique Quality: There are different types of accomodation. When I was there there was a big red London bus standing in the middle of everything.
There are also many activities to take part in. It was quite amusing to sit around and hear people trying to learn how to play the didge that they have just made on their own.
The Arts Factory is about a 5 min walk from the centre of Byron through a residential area.
However, A minibus runs from the hostel to town and vice versa till early in the morning. So you always know there is a way home which is excellent !!
Check in /Check out is quick and easy and the staff are friendy and helpful, always ready to help you get somewhere, tell you where the best deals are etc etc - always a help when on a "tight" budget !!
If you are a girlie - stay in the "Nunnery" Its in a secret Garden away from the rest of the lodge and has its own shower room, but you will have to share with 5 other nuns !!! But it is fun !
Unique Quality: The best thing by far is that it is the friendliest place I have stayed in!! Every night there is something going on - from a Kangaroo BBQ, to Digiridoo lessons, to poetry readings, yoga lessons etc etc.... so if you dont want to go into town, there is always something interesting happening at the hostel. Plus they have their own fantastic restaurant and bar... so what else could you ask for !!
