If you want to have 24/7 beach access, this is the place to stay in Byron Bay! They have their own path that leads straight to the beach. The kitchen area is large and cleaned every day. The social area is perfectly set up for meeting others. I found that this hostel was the easiest to meet people at because... More

Just travelling interstate from melbourne and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here in byron, beach is seconds away, rooms are good supplied with heaters too great for the winter nights, very helpful staff and great environment to stay in. Great price for the location and supplies, loved the hammocks! would recommend staying here if you come to byron.

I've stayed in hostels all along the east coast, but Backpackers Inn has been one of the best by far! It has such a great and welcoming atmosphere, and the location itself is fantastic - only a few seconds walk and you're at the beach. The rooms and kitchen are clean, and the common area is sociable. They have movie... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights. Staff came to pick us up from our loooong drive from Sydney in Premier Bus. That was a great service and they even offer pick up and lift to the city center every hour during the day. Hostel can be a bit noisy until 11pm but after they ask everyone to... More

Great hostel, 30 second walk to the beach, always bits going on, free bike hire & staff are friendly. 5-10 minute walk into town, & a bus runs fairly regularly if you're too lazy like me. Rooms were getting a lick of paint as I was leaving as well.

This place is verynice not the most updated but the peolple that there are the friendliest, the live music at night is a bonus and the beach 30 seconds away is a highlight I think if your going to byron this is the place you should be going to, plus the staff are the coolest people

Pretty good hostel. The beds are comfortable and the linen is very clean. There are lockers in the room. Bathrooms are clean although there aren't many and sometimes you will queue to shower or go to the loo. Location is good very close to town and short walk to the beach. Quite a lot of sofas to sit on although... More
