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.

    THE PLACE TO STAY IN BYRON! The rooms are clean, comfy & cheap to stay. The common area is frothy as can be 🙌🏽 table tennis (beer pong) table, pool table, jacuzzi & multiple gazebos to sesh under! Music on the constant, changing to suit all vibes of the guests. Would recommend all day, every day 10/10

    So the hostel is located in center of the town,walking distance from everything. The staff were very kind and eager to help with any of my questions. I had read some reviews about this place and they criticized about the cleanliness, I can honestly say that there wasn’t one day, that I came out of my room and didn’t see the staff cleaning. As well there is a cool girl walking around asking about everyone’s experience, they are willing to accommodate you. Cons: more variety for breakfast.

    The staff is super nice and helps you out with everything. The place has a huge really nice common area to hang out and meet new people so it’s perfect for those who travel alone or just wanna meet new people on their trip. Great atmosphere and modern rooms so nothing to complain about.

    Nomads hostel was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. With an awesome atmosphere, great staff, a lovely vibe considering it was the middle of winter, and a lot of extras on offer (free burger night, bikes, surfboards, nights out etc.). My only qualms would be the lack of cups (drinking water out of a bowl didn't aid the hydration game), and I was pretty dissapointed with the lack of recycling and composting. Otherwise an awesome visit made great by the awesome accomodation!

    Showers and Jacuzzis are a bit colder than what I’d like. Other than that - there were bugs in our room. But otherwise a very nice and well maintained hostel. - Maybe spraying the rooms with insect repellent and adding screens to windows would help. The music in the common areas is really loud.
