0/10 0 Stars 0/100! I have to agree with the previous review I had a similar experience with the manager who made false accusations obtained full refund as he was in the wrong. Notice his pattern of replys to negative reviews it makes for an interesting read very abusive. The truth hurts this hostel is terrible.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Been a while since I’ve been in a hostel & am pleased to report it wasn’t as bad as I thought! Byron is pricey so had to get a room in a shared dorm - luckily our sharers were clean & quiet. Easy walk from the bus stops. Left luggage as check in not til 2. Bathrooms very basic. Kitchen actually quite serviceable. Lots of places to sit and chill. Free bikes and body boards. Quiet after 10 or so. Ok stay - but wouldn’t stay more than 2 nights...

Backpackers inn is a sick hostel!! The great outdour area with the beach volleyball,the 2 min walk to the beach with great surf is what makes this hostel really special. Lived here for over a month and it’s one of the better hostels I’ve stayed at during my travels in Australia. Unfortunately I broke my foot at a party and have to go home soon. The staff has been very helpful to me and I want to give them a big thankyou!

Hello everyone, I would recommend the hostel for everyone for having a very nice space just next to the beach, very clean and organized. The outstanding was Alex Harper services, he is a travel expert, if you are planning any trip or you are on your already, I would strongly recommend to have a chat with him, he can help you to organize/re-organize your trip and fit everything you want to do, being very handy sorting out unexpected problem on the phone, which is a very positive plus! Hope you all have a nice and safe trip and don't forget to validate you trip and make your bookings with Alex (IG @harpertherascal)
