Location - good with the beach at the back of the property and a short walk to town (but the main area of Byron is small so easy to get a good location close to the beach) Rooms - ok, only 2 power sockets in a 4 bedroom dorm. My room had an issue that should be addressed. At the... More

This is a good hostel to stay in. The rooms are pretty clean and so are the bathrooms and common areas. It has a ok size pool which is good to chill in and also is a open hostel so it's always lively and has things going on. This is very close to the beach with a couple minute walk.

My friend and I booked a tour package which included a one night stay at Backpackers Inn. We hadn't heard much about it so I wasn't too sure what to expect. We arrived via the free shuttle bus to a friendly, colourful and laid back hostel. It's in the perfect location as its a 5 minute walk from the centre... More

Rooms were a bit stuffy at night with no air con just an overhead fan, wasn't too bad though, wifi was the only thing I didn't like, it was fairly expensive compared to... More

Fantastic location right on the beach and 2 mins from the town centre. Good cooking facilities and clean modern bathroom. Was very quiet from 10.30pm onwards and staff were excellent. We will definitely stay here next time we return to Byron!

This hostel is very well located, close to the beach and to the city center. It has a nice swimmingpool and kitchen. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms. The only inconvinience is having to leave a depositi to use plates, balls and cuttlery.
