The Main Beach Backpackers Byron Bay was one of the worst places we stayed in Australia. The only beds still available were in a 16-share dormitory room downstairs in the basement – with no windows. The aircon blew freezing cold air in the room during the night, while no blankets were provided! The next morning after some rain we couldn’t leave the room anymore without wading through the 10-20cm high floods in front our door. Some silly folks scattered huge amounts of polystyrene foam in the whole room during the night, dirtied it with cans and other rubbish. The place is a noisy party place, and so are the folks staying here. After all, the price for this shitty room was way too high. If you don’t like all this, do not stay here!
