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.

    I really loved Backpackers Inn! A great location, a little bit tucked away from the main strip, but a very short walk to everything I needed. The backdoor that goes directly to the beach is incredible. My room was right next to the main hangout area, so I was nervous about the noise, but they have strict quiet hours 10:30pm-7:30am. The place is incredibly clean for how many people are there. The staff are super friendly and Alex at the travel desk booked me SO MANY DEALS for the rest of trip!

    Overall our stay at this Hostel was smooth, rooms were big, with fans, the room for quite hot. The lockers are small. There is a very nice kitchen and really cool leisure facilities. With it only being a 2 walk from the beach if that. And also very close proximity to all of the shops. The staff were really friendly and helped with what they could!

    Great hostel in Byron. Had private access to the beach and loads of places to chill. Rooms were spacious and had lockers. Bathrooms were very clean and modern. Kitchen could do with more surface area as when it’s full it’s hard to cook. Staff were friendly and helpful. BYO alcohol was great and they offered free stamps to clubs in town every night. Only negatives were that Christmas Day could have been done better (cheaper BBQ and more games) and the hostel was about 15 mins from town.

    Good hostel. We enjoyed our stay here, staff was really welcomming and helpful. The kitchen was bad - small and always dirty. Also the fridge was smelly and totally overfilled. The rooms are SO hot, no aircon.
