I stayed with the Surf Camp here over Christmas and it was amazing! The staff are all really friendly and helpful, they managed to check me in straightaway although I arrived at 8am and wasn't due to check in until 2pm. The location was great, right next to the beach, with a private access gate so it was literally a... More

Staff were super helpful, everyone was respectful of the noise lockout, awesome location. Best place in town to stay, beach right at your back door! Shout out to Sam from Brighton who worked at the hostel who made me laugh on a daily basis and made sure everyone was happy!

The staff here are so friendly and helpful. Always willing to point you in the right direction and work so damn hard to maintain standards. The facilities are great with showers and toilets available around every corner. An awesome atmosphere all day every day up until 10:30 where it is quiet time but everyone heads out to town or the...

We were staying here while doing the 5 day Surf School that runs inside the Backpackers Inn. The rooms are clean, the whole place is always kept klean. Atmosphere is great, no-one being stupid or drunk. Noise was kept way down after 11pm, actually after 10.30pm it quiets down very quickly. But even before that it is not a loud... More

This hostel has a great beachy vibe and it's very easy to meet people just by sitting out on the picnic tables by the pool, or going down to the beach. Spacious rooms, bikes for your use, spacious kitchen, and great specials at the clubs in town when you stay at the hostel. Every night it seems like a different... More

Location is amazing, just next to beach. This hostel is really a surfers paradise. Full of chill people and atmosphere is relaxing and no worrying. Hostel staff is really easy going and friendly, so you will feel yourself really welcome. Rooms are not so moderns but they are cleaning every day and its also depends who you get your roommates...

Location: Backpackers Inn on the Beach, is really on the beach. Overall the backpackers was well positioned close to the township with a 5 to 10 minute walk to all the busy areas of town, and a 2 to 3 minute walk to the beach which was just through a gate. Room Details: The price was excellent for Byron during... More
