Property Description


We have great FREE WiFi throughout the whole hostel for all our guests to use.

Set in sand dunes just metres from the golden beach by the pristine waters of the bay and the iconic surf break known as “The Wreck”, Backpackers Inn really captures that true surf culture we all dream of.
With awesome fire shows, Live music events, VIP nights, regular BBQ's and a 2 minute walk to the bars, shops and restaurants, you will certainly be entertained.

The hostel’s unique horseshoe shape which has everyone meeting at the central courtyard next to the pool provides an awesome atmosphere where many friendships begin. This, coupled with the huge grassy backyard, WiFi, TV room with Foxsports and the beach volleyball court make it the ultimate place to hang.

Whether it be in the comfortable rooms, by the pool, using the Free boards and bicycles, lying in the hanging chairs & hammocks, with your friends in the palm filled coutyard, on the beach, or at one of the many bars and restaurants close by, come join us and 'chillax!'. View House Rules


Our hostel, Backpackers Inn on the Beach, is just steps away from the shore (the clue's in the name!). We're in the ideal spot for surfers and sun-worshippers – we've even got our own path leading straight to the golden sands of Byron Bay. After a day of hitting the big breaks on one of our free-to-use boards, the courtyard of our horseshoe-shaped hostel is the place to unwind. Lounge around in a hammock, take a dip in our pool, or wander round to our backyard for a classic Aussie barbecue.


We've got a truly unrivalled address in Byron, with direct access to the sand. Iconic surf break 'The Wreck' is right beside the hostel, too. It takes about 75 minutes to get to us from Gold Coast Airport – just hop on the Brisbane International to Byron shuttle bus. Local buses also run between the airport and town, but the journey takes about two hours instead. Joining us as part of a road trip? Parking's free for our guests.

Rooms and Dorms

Our clean and secure rooms come with linen and pillows – you just need to bring your own towel and you'll be set. We have a few private rooms for couples, singles and small groups who want their own space. Otherwise, you can grab a bed in one of our mixed or female-only dorms. Every bed comes with a locker to keep your stuff safe while you surf.

Extras and activities

Our hostel is made for hanging out, with al-fresco dining areas where you can tuck into food you've made in our fully equipped kitchen. By night, catch a movie at our outdoor cinema with the sound of the waves in the background. And by day, hit our full-sized beach volleyball court for a quick game with your new travel pals. Fancy exploring a bit further afield? Hire bikes and surfboards from reception and get to know Byron's beautiful coast.

    A lot of cool people and for life friends! The beach is just there and you will always find someone to go surf or hiking or even just to chill for a while.

    Great Hostel, PERFECT location. Atmosphere is amazing, we (18ys old) were definitely the youngest. Everybody seemed to be over 23 til 28. Vibe's all good, tho. Surfers can't wish for more, and so do normal backpackers who just wanna live on the beach and relax. Nice walk to the lighthouse. Luggage room is there, shower's hot, everything clean. Amazing!

    What a cool hostel. Very boho-hippie vibe. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the guests staying were super chill. A really cool location. The rooms were huge, which was great. Never had a line for the bathrooms or showers. Right off of the beach, and SO many cool shops. I’d stay here again in a heart beat.

    The Stay was really awesome! Its just max. 2 min away from the beach and it even has an oven. The people there are really friendly and its a pleasant atmosphere. Even with all the alcohol being consumed there its really quite around 10 pm. So a good drink and a good sleep are guaranteed

    Great atmosphere if you want to socialise. Lots of activities to do at the hostel like yoga, swimming, volleyball - was sadly raining the whole time we were there so didn’t get to do the activities. Hostel rooms weren’t very clean. There was blood on the wall where my head went and would have been good to have a broom in the room to sweep so sand didn't get all through the bed.

    This hostel is super close to the beach and not too far from the centre. The only thing that bothered me was that a lot of big groups stayed at the hostel and we felt a little outside. Go to the different bathrooms to find the best showers, some are better than others, and we found one bathroom with amazing showers. The staff was a bit standoffish and the kitchen closes really early and doesn't open early enough for if you are going on a tour at 6 or 7 in the morning.

    great location to wake up early and go to the beach. nice backyard to chill. book surf lessons and other activities directly at the hostel. big kitchen, would be nice to have a freezer as well though. friendly staff. basic rooms (had a 4 female dormitory). would be nice to have more hangers on the wall, a small table to be able to put down your bag for example. extra lights at each bed would be really handy, so that you dont have to wake up the others by turning on the main light.

    Nice hostel with good facilities but have to put deposit for key and using plates, you also get charged if you use credit card to pay for deposits. Very busy hostel, especially when it rains so not much space to chill.
