I loved my stay at Backpackers inn at the beach - the only hostel actually on the beach! The staff are all amazing especially Nat who went out of her way to help with booking trips, generally looking after people who stay. She always had time to help and goes the extra mile. A really friendly and social hostel you... More

'We stayed here as a friend had stayed there before and recommended it. It was cheap, the staff were friendly, one of the cleanest places i have stayed out of most of the backpackers in the price range. Stayed there for one night then decided to stay there for three nights on our way back to Bribane as I loved... More

I've been suggested to stay at backpackers inn from a friend 'local', now I understand why...this hostel is the only one in byron with a direct access to the beach (50m) and an atmosphere really chilled and easy going. The most of the people are here or to surf or to party. Everything is quite well cleaned and the kitchen... More

I had a real fun time staying at Backpackers Inn! I stayed in the 5-bed room and it had more than enough space for everyone's belongings. The bed was comfy, there were lockers in the room and I was given sufficient blankets. There are lots of chill out spots around, my favourite being the swing seat that hangs from the... More

Great hostel if you’re traveling by yourself! I went there in August after a travel agent in Surfer’s Paradise recommended it. The two day deal was the perfect amount of surf time for me and I had such a blast I extended it one day to explore the area. I was picked up from the bus stop, the room was... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. It is a bit smaller, has great kitchen and common area, which is really good. The beach is not even 1 minute away just like the center of byron. The shuttle service to the greyhoundbus is good. Rooms and Bathrooms a cleaned every day. Lockers are provided in each room. The rooms... More

Backpackers inn is a rather big hostel, but it definitely doesn't feel that way. There are lots of places to chill out in the garden (with hammocks) or in the spacious living room. The beach is literally at your doorstep, only a very short stroll through the garden/dunes. The room I stayed in (5 bed dorm) was quite big, had... More

The hostel is nice. It has a good location close to the beach, but the way there is through bush and is quite dangerous. When we were there, some snakes were spotted there.. The rooms and bathrooms were not perfectly clean, but clean enough. It was very noisy, but you had to leave the hostel at night, to party on... More

It is a good and nice place, it has immediate access to the beach and the town is a walking distance. The Staff is helpful and the facilities are good, and it is not loud after 11 pm which makes it very easy to sleep. The bathrooms are not to clean at the end of the day...

Conveniently located, friendly people made it a great place to make friends. A good place to stay if you like to party It was clean and well kept, with cleaners coming to vacuum and change the bins in the room everyday. I would recommend to friends and would stay again.
