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! Check out our jobs board for any openings.

    Fantastic hostel, so social but still chilled and able to get a good night sleep. Location was awesome being out of the busy centre, and able to use the shuttle so efficiently. It’s also a super CLEAN hostel, seemed like the kitchen was always being cleaned by someone. But the highlight was definitely the staff. They’re so friendly and welcoming, big shout out to Tash kelly and Bella who were bloody charming. See you next time!

    Fantastic hostel. Amazing location. The staff here are amazing. In particularly the cleaning team, Amy and Holly do a great job which really makes a difference. A clean hostel is a must. Toby the night guy is also super friendly. As well as Anisa at reception. Highly recommend this hostel for your stay in Sydney.

    My third time coming back to the wake up in Byron bay. It’s my fav hostel in Australia that’s a great mix of beach resort and hostel. It is not a rowdy party hostel, but still very social and fun, with people hanging in the courtyard then going out every night. The best thing about wake up is the staff. They always go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect (thanks again for everything bec!)

    Staying at WakeUp was one of my best hostel experiences ever. The rooms are very clean, spacious and provide you with a locker. Tere daily activities where you get to meet lots of new people and explore ByronBay and its surroundings. I can definitely recommend staying here!

    The hostel is at a dog beach. The hostel ist good the shuttle and bikes and surfboards are complementary and super good. The kitchen and community area is nice and you can meet people there. The pizza night for 12 Australien Dollar and all you can eat pizza with live music was super nice. Many people were there. The facilities of the hostel are good. Enough warm showers. Air condition. Beds are ok. I was in a deluxe room I think it was worth it. On Sunday you get free pan cakes which is nice.

    The best - While just outside of town, the short distance makes the hostel beach feel private, with plenty of space to surf unmolested. Most of the staff was amazing, the rest great; they put a ton of work in to the events there and make sure everyone had fun - Vanessa is the cheeriest, most positive, excitable person I've met. I'm not sure if it's her work face or if she's like that all the time but she made the stay the best for so many. Good luck figuring things out - hope to see ya again!

    One of the best places to stay in Byron. Very close to the beach, and the atmosphere and the vibe in the hostel is one of the best I’ve experienced. Fun activities, easy to mingle with new people and friendly staff. They also have a regular shuttle service to take you to the city. Thanks Wake Up Byron for an amazing and memorable time.

    We were at Wake Up for Christmas this year. There were some really nice touches, good events on and the hostel had a nice feel. It was great that the shuttle ran into town so often, as hostel is on the quieter end of the beach. However the weather forecast was rain during Christmas dinner and there was not enough space for everyone to sit- some umbrellas or gazebos would have been ideal just to help people sit together and make socialising easier.
