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.

Pros: great location right on the beach, surf school, wifi was the best I had in hostels. Cons: felt like a big party full of drunk 18 year olds (I think drinking is not allowed but everyone was drunk anyway. But I guess this is the atmosphere everywhere in Byron), room was very basic for the price, there were places...

This is for sure the best hostel in Byron, located as close to the beach as you can possibly get. You can rent surf boards for very cheap, there's a beach volleyball court and plenty of room to hang out. Rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly but the best part is the relaxed and chill...

I stayed here for 6 nights in January (I extended my stay as I enjoyed the atmosphere so much!). It's the perfect place to meet new people - it has a very sociable garden area with picnic bench seating, and a grassy area with volleyball court and beanbags. One night they had a band set up and music playing. Very...

The rooms are quite dingy - ours was missing half a curtain and was a bit dirty but that doesn't matter as you are spending most of your time at the beach or in the communal areas! Most of the bathrooms have been redone and they are mostly clean and spacious. I had a great surf lesson here - although...

We stayed here for free as pet of our Oz Experience and we loved the hostel. They have a really nice garden with loss of bean bags, hammocks, different seats and a volleyball net. We also had a free surf lesson for my whir surf school which was really well done. Having a private access track to the beach was...

This hostel is well maintained and well run. There is a shuttle bus to pick you up from the bus stop. The hostel is a five minute walk out of town (safe for you to walk on your own). The hostel is quite big but it has a really good vibe about it and it is quiet so say it...

Really great facilities at the hostel that I was not expecting. Came to reception and met friendly Simon that quickly helped me to check in to a room. Staff is really helpful comparing to other hostels in Byron Bay that I have stayed at. Receptionist Jessie(?) went out of her way for almost an hour to make sure I didnt...
