Relax At The Byron Beach Resort, Byron Bay, Australia – Hostel Review

[:en]The last week we were in Australia, we chose to have a couple days of relaxing after packing up our entire lives into 5 boxes and 2 backpacks. Byron Bay is easy to reach from Sydney and relaxation is always guaranteed.

Well, that is if you don’t visit during a cyclone like we did. But the staff from the Byron Beach Resort couldn’t help that of course. They tried their best to manage during a power outage and heavy rainstorms by handing us candles and a free rain poncho.

The temporary ‘Silver Bullet Café’ (their original ‘Tree House Cafe’ had been affected by fire)

 

What do they offer?

A range of room types is offered at the Byron Beach Resort. We stayed in a double room with en-suite bathroom, at the back of reception (1st floor). It was everything we needed. A comfy bed, clean and spacious bathroom, TV and fridge (although with our power outage… both not so useful). There was even coffee/tea and a kettle+cups in the room and we were provided with towels and soap+shampoo.

You can also choose between private rooms with shared bathrooms, a studio with a private bathroom and balcony or even a 2 bedroom cottage.

If you’d rather share a room with friends, there are also 4-8 person dorm rooms or ‘family’ rooms available.

 

The Beach Resort features a BBQ area, cafe, fully equipped kitchen (get your dinner set from reception) and common TV-Room, WiFi options (paid), a laundry (coin-operated), tour desk, computer room and vending machines.

Check-in is from 14:00-19:00 and check out is from 08:00-10:00.

What about the extra’s?

The Byron Beach Resort is only 300 meters from Belongil Beach, a quiet stretch of sand from where you can walk in 15 minutes to Byron Bay’s Main Beach. Ocean-wise, you can’t get much better than this.

If you want to get into Byron’s centre though, you’re a bit further away. We walked it most days (about 20 minutes), but the hostel also has its own (FREE) shuttle bus service. It saved us during the cyclone a couple of times!

Free things: parking, bicycle hire (2 hours per day), DVD and board games hire.

The hostels offers many activities, such as a BBQ and Yoga lessons. We also found the staff very friendly, and that’s always a great extra!
