Within being there for 15 minutes, I knew i'd made a bad decision in only staying for two nights. There are things which could be improved, for example, it's a bit silly that you have to keep going to reception for a wifi code, but not the end of the world! We stayed for 2 nights, having a surf lesson... More

Although it was pretty much raining all the time it is an excellent hostel to stay at. Strong WIFI, Pool, Volleyball, bike hire.. all for free. Not even I minute to the beach. Always clean. Super friendly and helpful staff. A couple of minutes away from the city centre and brilliant discounts for everything.

I had an amazing experience at this hostel. So first when I arrived to Byron everything was booked out so I stayed at Nomads (I think I would've slept better on the street); moved on to YHA which is not bad but theres no vibe and having to use the keycard to do anything was a pain in the....

Super clean backpackers with direct access to the beach behind & onsite parking available. Hostel staff were really friendly & had loads of recommendations for eating/drinking out round Byron. Location is about a 10 minute walk from the centre but it's an easy stroll. Showers were spotlessly clean as was our room. There was a bit of a commotion in... More

I didn't even stay in Backpackers but I came in and spoke with the receptionist and he was short with me, rude and made it apparent that he didn't want to give me any time. He should either reevaluate his work ethic or quit or better yet be fired, at least he would learn his lesson about work ethic and... More

Had an awesome time staying at Backpackers Inn! So great that it is right in the beach. Not too long of a walk into town which is nice and makes it quiet. Still a good party atmosphere though! Definitely recommend it to any backpackers staying in Byron!

Backpackers inn is the best choice of hostels in Byron; located right on the beach, great facilities such as volleyball court and pool, as well as chill-out vibes and good people. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Byron.
