Ich habe am Check In Tag noch die Jugendherberge gewechselt und bin in ins YHA Byron Bay. Ein Unterschied wie Tag und Nacht! Im Cape Byron gibt es nur eine kleine Küche und keine vernünftigen Aufenthaltsräume und keinen vernünftigen Essplatz. Die Beleuchtung ist spärlich. Diese Herberge bedarf dringend einer Renovierung und das Personal, welches mit meinem Wechselwunsch so gar nicht umgehen konnte, dringend einer Schulung! In der Jugendherberge Byron Bay war alles gar kein Problem!

Super Lage, einkaufen und Strand in 50m Naehe. Da hier alle etwas locker gehandhabt wird, war die Kueche oft etwas dreckig und die Toiletten muffig, ein Teil des Staffs machte gerne selber Party oder hielt ein Schwaetzchen. Auch ist der Eingang komplett offen, es kam vor, dass ein alter betrunkener Mann auf einer Couch im Aufenthaltsbereich geschlafen und etwas rumgepoebelt hat. Insgesamt zu empfehlen, aber es gibt viele Alternativen aussenrum.
