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.

    I didn’t want to leave Byron Bay or Wake Up! I enjoyed talking with the staff during social events, they have such positive energy. The location across from the beach couldn’t be better. I enjoyed meditations each morning with the rising sun. They also offer free yoga classes a few times a week and the teachers are very knowledgeable, inspiring and compassionate Yogis. I’ll be back to visit!

    Loved how this hostel was right on the beach and had free surf and paddle boards for use as well as bikes. There's a regular shuttle bus to and from town but it's only a 20 minute walk along the beach anyway. Nice atmosphere and there are daily activities so it's easy to meet other people. Chilled vibes, friendly staff, and the most comfortable beds of any hostels I've stayed in. I booked 2 nights but ended up extending for a week.

    One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! The place is beautiful and clean. The staff is super friendly and helpful (Mark is a legend!). Really loved the morning yoga and the free surfboard/SUP/bike rentals. I felt like I was staying at a resort. Would stay again, would reccomend to a friend.

    Love that is close to the beach. Really feels like a place where you wouldn’t want to leave EVER! The staff ( specially mark and Pete) are like friends I haven’t seen in a long time and if you stay for a long run they will become family. It is a bit high price but is worth every penny.

    Wake up was amazing get-away experience. The community itself was refreshing, everyone was so friendly and laid back, and the beaches were paradise. The hostel had all kinds of group activities to get you outdoors and to meet people. They had plenty of amenities including free surf boards, bikes, and a shuttle into town. The staff was also very friendly. I did the sunrise light house hike, and our guide, Michelle, was so helpful and fun and made me feel really welcomed. 10/10 would recommend!

    I loved my stay in Wake Up! Everything is great, but especially the atmosphere here is awesome. It’s really relaxed and chill and easy to make new friends. Big thumps up for the most friendly staff ever there, especially Bec and Maud!

    I've backpacked around the world and this is one of the best ones I've stayed in. Really nice hostel, with hot showers, and nice little touches all round like free rental of surfboards, and some nice organised activities. Will likely stay here again!

    People steal things from fridges. I saw on several occasions when people were looking for things that had fallen out of bags or didn’t have name tags on them so they could justify grabbing them. One guy grabbed a whole chicken and bragged about “finding” chicken in the fridge. Someone stole my marked items. Everyone else in my deluxe shared room was paying for the standard rate which I thought was a bit odd. You could probably negotiate that. Room floor was covered in soap layer after each clean
