There's free breakfast in the mornings to give you the energy for catching those waves and you can while away happy, chilled afternoons in our bring-your-own-alcohol courtyard. Or grab some meats to grill on our barbecue – complete with beach views – out on the balcony. And if you can't tear yourself away? Check out our job board for positions in the area.


You’ll find us just six minutes’ walk from Main Beach, where you can take a surf lesson or grab a beer and spend the day lounging in the sunshine. If you fancy stretching your legs, stroll along the Cape Byron Walking Track, a 4km loop that starts less than 10 minutes’ walk from the hostel and takes you through lush rainforest and onto windy cliffs. The Jonson Street Bus Terminal is a 4-minute walk away if you want to explore further out – jump on for a couple of hours to reach Ballina Byron Gateway Airport.

We've got private rooms and mixed dorms, with shared bathrooms or en-suites. All our rooms are air-conditioned for those balmy Aussie nights and come with free linen, so you don't need to pack a sleeping bag. There’s a locker too, so your stuff will be safe while you're out on the sand.

Extras and activities

Join us for cheap daily activities like lighthouse walks and open mic nights. You’re probably going to want to upload all of those enviable pics to Instagram, so we have cheap pre-pay internet cards and free Wi-Fi in reception. Make yourself at home in our shared kitchen, which has everything you need to whip up something for dinner. Lost some essential items on your travels? We've got a handy on-site Mad Travel Shop. Oh, and there's a TV lounge for easygoing movie nights in!

    We stayed for one night at the hostel. The amenities were great and the atmosphere too. Very close to the beach and affordable prices.

    To be fair, I only had one night here and it was rainy so I could be unlucky! But as a solo traveller, I found the atmosphere not very open. At breakfast (simple, but good), everyone sat around in a circle but only spoke maybe to their one friend. I think conversation would flow better if seated at tables across from one another. I didn’t love the key code system either - maybe if codes could be shorter. Resulted in most people forgetting their number and knocking on the door (once at 3am).

    Had heaps of fun here, was a great place to meet people and is right in the centre of town. Just needs a bigger kitchen and more fridge space for the number of people staying!

    I traveled to Byron Bay to have a weekend away by myself and enjoyed my stay at Nomads Byron Bay! The staff were all approachable and so friendly. This hostel seemed to be quite busy! There were a lot of people in / out and socializing! I would have liked to socialize more, but I was on a bit of a time crunch with how much I scheduled into my weekend. I definitely recommend this place!

    Nomads had activities planned throughout my stayed which helped me to put myself out there as a solo traveler, surfboards and bike rentals were only $10/day which also helped my budgeting throughout the trip. Location was great, able to walk back with ease from Main Beach and located right next to all the shops and in the same building as a grocery store. Would recommend for backpackers of a younger age who aren't in need of any "frills" during their stay.

    Great location, its a big U shape of two floors dorms , with lots of backpackers, room is clean with AC. Everything is great, One thing I couldnt stand is the ladys shower n toilet located at the end of the hall, I dont mind some guy coming in to use it but there is almost No air in that shower room , all the heat is trapped in there, therefore there is MOLD!!! Staff are hard working ,but with bunch of young teens expecting people to clean up their mess ia hard work!!

    I really didnt enjoy my stay at Nomads. The front desk employees tried to sell us Fraser Island tours at 8am after our overnight bus. The luggage room was packed and had mosquitos. The door code security system is hard to use and left us locked out a couple times. We tried to extend our stay one night and they made us check out and wouldn’t let us check in again until 2...just to have the same exact room. The Air con in our room didn’t work. Overall terrible stay. would definitely not recommend
