Hi, heading up the coast from Sydney soon and was just wondering if anyone knows of any good hostels in Surfers Paradise and Byron Bay! Places that are lively, clean and cheap!! Also is it better to book in advance or just arrive in these places and hope for the best???
Thanks x

Jump up and down go and move it all around, sorry got lost in the moment...err

right i suggest booking in advance for both bryon and surfers. I would book a week before you plan to be there, i've slept in a car in bryon and once in surfers on a beach because there is so many people and so little accomodation.

bryon bay. Aquarius nice compact hostel with good atmosphere and a bar!!!!!!

Surfers. No other place to stay other than surf and sun beach side backpackers i used work there for a bit best night out in Australia, hands down. Family run place and VERY CLEAN.

hope this information has been of some help.

I love holiday inn at byron, excellent, i booked to stay in one of the apartments, its only $3 more then the dorms, well worth the money. You can get a dvd-free (just pay a deposit and on return you get your money back.)

While i was there they put on a BBQ. I always went to Cheeky monkeys club which is right opposite-you have some great nights there!!
