There was a lot ofregomends to go to the Rainforest. But they did not say or wright that there is no lokal bus or they woud not drive you. So i was stuck in Bellingen. I woud have payed for a lift to the jungel( there where other how wanted to go) but the staff just didnt want to drive. Only 2 a week. I was very disapoted.

We stayed here as we were on route to the Blue Mountains from Byron Bay. It is tucked away from the main high street with a lovely view of the hills and overlooking the river. It seems a throwback to the 60s in its whole outlook and is a very we'll run place with friendly staff and a good kitchen set up. A nice hostel to chill out at.
