I am hard to impress after nearly a decade of travel all over the place. This hostel is wonderful in many little details. Great place to stay. Clearly better value for money than other apparently cheaper places. Having seen all hostels in town, this is the one to go to. The only one to go to!

I am 7+ years traveller on 6 continents. It is hard to impress me hostelwise. This place is amazing in many details. Many bathrooms, being well maintained. Lovely kitchen, common and outside area. Direct beach access. A beautiful Australian girl as receptionist, who is not conceited but just nice. They got it all. Even a bathtub and decent free WiFi.... More

My unvalued opinion, I believe the Backpackers Inn hostel Byron Bay is the best in the area. This is my second visit to this hostel in a two year period, the nine bed dorm that myself and a friend stayed in for just shy of two weeks was good. The room was large and appropriate to have nine beds in,... More

Stayed here with a few friends, the rooms were of a decent size! And the shower facilities were clean also! It's very close to the beach, which was so handy. Most of the staff were very friendly and approachable which made the experience better! My only complaint would be not to have the eating/ seating area so close to the... More

Stayed here for a week in both a dorm and a private room. Rooms were great, they were spacious, clean and all had lockers. The bathrooms and kitchen were always clean! Great location with having a back gate onto the beach and only a 5 minute walk into the centre! The hostel was friendly and clean. Highly recommend and would... More

We stayed for one night as a couple. It was a great little place and excellent if you want to hit the beach as it backs onto the main beach. It's a five minute walk into the town centre so in a great location.

The accommodation is good for a hostel and the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis. Good communal facilities. He hostel also offers a minibus service to and... More

We stayed here for 1 night, 3 girls in a 4 bed girls only dorm. The hostel is incredibly clean, one of the cleanest I've stayed in in Australia. Toilet blocks and showers are always very clean and most quite modern and showers always powerful and hot! Right on to the beach, a 2 minute walk to the beach and... More
