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

We just loved this hostel! Big kitchen, clean facilities, friendly people who works there are happy to help you, nice room and perfectly situated, just in front of the beach! You can have a body board and bikes for free + rent surf board so it'svery convenient. We'll come back for sure!

My 3 friends (2 from sweden) and I (from france) spent two nights at the Backpackers inn to do a 2 day surf camp (at the end of April 2014).

We had a very good experience at the backpacker inn :
- we had a very big room for 5 people only for the 4 of us
- the hostel offer many clean bathrooms

... and an excellent experience with the surf camp Byron Bay :
- they lend me their surf accessory for my go pro
- they made us the best breakfasts ever (and a great bbq for dinner)
- they gave us great tips
- we had a surf teacher only for the 4 of us
- they allowed us to take the surf boards after the classes

I really want to thank them again for their hospitality :)

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 after 10.30 there is no where to go and if someone in your room is sleeping and your not going out then there's not much you can do.
Our room had a balcony which was good as well.
The kitchen is dirty and you have to deposit $5 for a kitchen set and it was so dirty - the box was dirty and there was so much dried onto the fork it was horrible.
The customer service was average - the bus driver was very friendly and helpful. However reception staff were ok - when we arrived to check in at a greyhound arrival time (as in they should have been expecting us) they said they were changing over staff and they would have to close the door on us. Leaving about 8 people just standing with bags for 15 mins - no where to go.... Would recommend they make the changeover time at a less busy time/ not when they please.... It wasnt even on the hour.
Otherwise great experience with other backpackers.
