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.

    Absolutely excellent hostel. After staying in Nomads its obvious Wake Up is such a much better option. Clean and well managed. Highly recommend

    Wake Up is one of the best hostels I’ve been to. I was at wake up when things started getting crazy with coronavirus and it was an awesome and supportive vibe. I ended up having to book an extremely last minute bus to Sydney and the staff at wake up were so understanding of the stressful situation I and many other backpackers were in. I would recommend Wake Up Byron to anyone going to Byron Bay. Being there at the worst possible time just shows how great of a hostel they are.

    If you wanna chill and get the full Byron Bay experience Wake Up is great for this. A bit from the town but a free bus shuttle to the town and your right on the beach what more do you want. Nice staff and very clean ☺️

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

    I decucted a mark for staff as the night supervisor was so rude to my friend 2 nights in a row as he asked everyone to leave at 10pm. She was assisting him put cans in the bin and he shouted at her. I paid $41 for a bed in a 12 bed dorm that night. I don't expect to be shouted at as an adult. Rest of the staff are amazing though, go above and beyond. I also deducted a mark for security as there is no toilet to use if you've forgotten your key in the middle of the night, all locked with FOBs

    Really Great place to stay one of the best hostels I've stayed in, staff are really friendly and I've stayed in every wake up hostel and this is by far the best one the beach is just across the road, only thing is maybe clean the sides by the windows as some have dust starting to gather. But would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Byron

    This is such a good hostel, friendly helpful staff, comfy beds, clean bathrooms it has all the essentials. I love wake up hostels they are the best hostels in Australia. Only drawback is the restaurant onsite is soooo pricey. Also the hostel is pretty far from town so if you miss the free shuttle which is every hour it can be a long wait for the next one.
