A excellent stay and found Damien, Joanna and Luke (plus the rest of the team) to be super helpful and friendly.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and a good size with adequate storage, plus the room comes with balcony which is super useful to help dry off clothes after a swim etc.

The hostel as a whole sounds like it has a really promising future and wonderful staff to help develop it in the next stages.

Plugs and reading lights in the bunks wouldn’t go amiss but I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s already in the works for the future development. That said there were plenty of plug dotted about the room that you could charge a portable charger easily.

If you’re working as you’re travelling, the hostel has a good area that people can work from too.

All in all, an excellent stay. If (when) I’m back in Byron I’ll definitely be looking to stay here again.

Room tip: Currently there are no charging points in every bunk, so it’s worth bringing a portable charger. That said, the room has plenty of sockets.

Thank you for your comprehensive review Ilikesolotravel2023. While our primary market and bedding configurations focus on the hostel traveller, we certainly do have a good volume of private rooms (22 currently) with ensuites to cater to the more discreet, romantic or corporate side of our guests while still feeling the energy, multi culture, multi language and dynamic excitement of the backpacker/hostel market. Best of both worlds really and based on your feedback fair to say our guest experience rivals the best in our infancy stages while far from perfect and always room to improve. Watch this space for May/June onward. Luke Harley - General Manager.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The dorm rooms were recently furnished so the mattresses were comfy and the rooms were clean and modern. It was located right in the centre of Byron Bay which meant everything was within walking distance. The toilets and showers were clean and had shampoo and conditioner available in them. The staff were extremely friendly with a special shout out to Damien who would answer any questions we had. He was a LEGEND! Could not recommend this place enough. It made our time in Byron Bay super enjoyable.

Thank you Ciaram184 and appreciate you choosing to stay with us. We are the new kid on the block and you don't get any closer to the heart of Byron than us! Damien is an awesome example of genuine caring interactive service and he loves what he does which shows. Thank you for identifying that and we look forward to welcoming you again if your travels lead you back this way. Luke Harley - General Manager

Me and my friends had a fantastic stay at Vali Village over the Xmas period. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are really nice. The bathrooms, kitchen area and bedrooms are also very clean. The staff were very nice and friendly there especially Damien, he really made sure we had a great stay in Vali and went above and beyond to make sure everything was ok for us. There was a great atmosphere there too.

If you are unable to return, please let all your travelling friends know about us and what we do so they can enjoy a bit of the Vali experience as well. Travel safe. Luke Harley - General Manager

Fantastic, Check in was a breeze, advised of car parking downstairs in Aldi carpark, they validated the ticket. Was upgraded to another room by Manager "Luke", every staff member I spoke to were friendly and happy. Great location, comfortable bed with a small balcony (208), will definitely stay again.

Room tip: Lots of food places to eat close by.

The location is great, right in the middle of Byron bay. The room was cute and the bed comfortable. Average were the common areas especially the bathroom and showers. Most shower gels/shampoos were empty, dirty items on floor and sink (there was a used eyelash next to the sink for the whole 4 days we stayed there) The cleaning of the room which was done after 2 days was questionable.
