About Backpackers Inn on the Beach

Backpackers Inn is located in Australia’s eastern most village, beautiful beachside Byron Bay, a mecca for travellers from all corners of the globe.

For over 20 years Backpackers Inn has been regarded as one of Australia’s premier beach hostels. It has become an institution for hundreds of thousands of travellers from all over the world and Australians alike. Like the Bermuda triangle, you can disappear into your own word here at “The Inn”. Set in sand dunes just metres from the golden beach, the pristine waters of the bay and the iconic surf break known as “The Wreck”, it is the only hostel with Direct Beach Access.

The hostel’s unique horseshoe shape which has everyone meeting at the central courtyard next to the pool, provides an awesome atmosphere where many friendships begin. This coupled with the huge grassy backyard make it the ultimate place to hang. A large clean communal kitchen, TV/Video room with ESPN and Fox Sports, laundry, plus games area and lounge room finish the touches for all a traveller needs.

Our motto at The BPI is to “Chillax” – this is a combination of Chilling Out and Relaxing. Whether it be in the comfortable rooms, by the pool, lying in the hanging chairs or hammocks, with your friends in the palm filled coutyard, on the beach, or at one of the many bars and restaurants close by, come join us and ….CHILLAX.

Accommodation Information

Rooms are made up of dorms ranging from 4- 9 share, doubles, twins and singles... all with communal bathrooms.

Location Information

Backpackers Inn is located on Shirley Street - the main street leading into the town centre from the north - opposite the hospital. Perched on the beach so close to the centre means you are in perfect position for a relaxing holiday in walking distance to everything.

You are able to utilise our free coutesy bus to and from the Byron Bay bus stop, park your car in car park provided and cycle around on the free bicycles.

A walk to the famous lighthouse ( Australia's most easterly point) along the beach is highly recommended - see dolphins play and whales in the winter season.

All tours and attractions pick up from the hostel including surf schools, sea kayaking tours, Nimbin tours taking in waterfalls and rainforests, scuba diving at Julian Rocks, sky diving and fishing.

The many restaurants and famous bars such as The Beach Hotel, Railway Friendly Bar, Woody's Surf Shack, Cocomangas and Cheeky Monkeys are a short walk into town.

Of course the sunsets on the beach in front of the hostel are to die for. Bring your camera.
