My partner and I pulled up on the day asking for a camp spot, we were greeted by a lovely lady and told that if you stay two nights you get one free! We stayed at this backpackers for a total of four nights and didn't want to leave! The views are amazing, people are great and the facilities are... More

We stayed here in a spaceship van but the facilities were amazing and the surroundings are so peaceful and relaxing. The scenery is beautiful aswell and they have great deals everyday on food/pancakes etc. Really enjoyed our stay and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. Would recommend anyone who wants to visit nimbin to stay here 😄

This hostel was a dream come true. We booked in for one night and ended up staying 3! Nimbin itself is very layed back, welcoming to backpackers and a unique place. The hostel is situated only a 5 min walk from the town so you're close to everything however it's far enough away that you get to enjoy the absolutely... More

Amazing experience. We weren't expecting "glamping" but we were happier for it. Each area has its own space so visitors don't have to be in each other's face, but there are also communal areas so you can meet new people. Large clean kitchen with everything you need and clean bathrooms, pool table, "lounge" area, swimming pool nestled within a volcanic... More

such a relaxing place. I always take my own tent, have never been over crowded. The yha staff are friendly and helpful. Swimming pool, pool table, bbq & tree swings made an excellent holiday. Its like home. Highly recommended.

Great little hostel nestled away in the trees about a 20 minute walk from Nimbin itself. Staff were super friendly and clearly love running the hostel. Stayed here for 3 nights on my way up the coast and very much enjoyed being able to completely chill out in this relaxed environment. Kitchen was ample size for the size of the... More

Hidden at the foot of the mountains this is an excellent well run hostel! Near enough to be part of Nimbin... Far enough away to chill! Manager couldn't be more helpful. Lifts people from bus, sorts in house Bbq's etc & can even be seen washing the sheets. If you are in Byron at least take one night at the... More

I stayed at the Nimbin Rox Backpackers on a short trip to escape the Gold Coast whilst in QLD for work. I was impressed. The staff member who took my call & showed me around once I arrived was very helpful and went out of her way to make guests feel welcome. The room I chose was a separate double... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed in a doubleroom (Orchard2), it was out back and away from pool/music room. The scenery is amazing and the town centre only a 10 minute walk away. The kitchen was top notch and what you would expect from a good hostel. Interent was free at reception. No TV in room but relaxation was the... More
