Wake Up! Byron Beach is a hero of a hostel right by the white Belongil sands. With its fresh colours and airy feel, the whole space – from the kitchen to the common areas – has those laid-back Aussie vibes that probably lured you to the east coast in the first place. We'll treat you to some freebies, too, including surf and paddle boards for riding the waves, yoga classes for perfecting your tree pose, and personal training sessions so you can keep in shape. There's also a free Sunday pancake breakfast, and we put on free live music events. Awesome, right?


Try hopping on our free shuttle or one of our bikes to cover the couple of kilometres into the centre of town. If you're arriving at the Byron Bay Coach Stop, you can use one of our pickups to get to the hostel. Flying in? We'd recommend booking a private shuttle service from Ballina Byron Gateway Airport which is super easy. The drive only takes about half an hour.

Rooms and Dorms

We have stylish private rooms and dorms, with mixed and female-only options. They're all air-conditioned, and you'll have a lamp, powerpoint and USB port right by your bunk. Linen and lockers are included as well. Our free Wi-Fi means you can learn some Aussie slang from the comfort of your bed. Bonzer!

Extras and activities

You'll find local fave The Tree House bar and restaurant on site, so you don't have to go far to eat or grab a drink. We even do $10 deals on meals like sushi and pizza to help you stick to the budget. If you're keen to pack as much into your day as possible, get up early and head out on one of our free sunrise lighthouse tours. Thinking of setting up in Byron for a while? We don't blame you!

    Great hostel to stay in for a quieter vibe. Though still quite social. A lot of the people there were working around town or "from home" Open courtyard is a great place to chill out or meet new people. I was in a private room, which was great. I peaked into some of the shared rooms and they looked pretty good. An easy bike ride into town (using one of the free bikes), and a shuttle very frequently going in and out of town. Nice beach across the street with a park good for chilling out as well

    Everything about the place was incredible, it was right by the beach and there were so many activities to participate in! The rooms and bathrooms were so clean, kitchen was spacious and clean and everybody was so friendly. The staff were so helpful, especially Bella at the front desk who so happily answered our millions of questions and suggested the best spots around Byron! They also have a restaurant/bar next door that made you forget covid was even a thing from how lively the environment was!

    OMG, no words can describe this hostel, really, I would risk to say the best hostel in Australia! You have everything that you need, Yoga classes, free transport, surf boards and the coolest staff ever! Everyone is so friendly and nice! Best Atmosphere! You decide if you want to chillout or party, both options available at the same place! I totally recommend! Looking forward to my next visit!

    Wake Up! Great location right on the beach, a fantastic iconic cafe/restaurant (treehouse) next door and only 30 minute walk to Byron Bay.

    Such a wonderful hostel! So friendly with a beautiful courtyard for people to mingle. The rooms also have air-conditioning which was an unbelievable blessing!! The only downside is it's a bit of a stroll to town, but they offer a free shuttle bus and free rental bikes!! Will definitely be staying here for our next trip!

    Staff was nice and helpful. Location is good by being close to the beach but a bit far from the centre. Facilities are ok, not very clean or modern.
