About Beachside Backpackers

Hey Hey Travelers!


We are the youngest, funnest, and funkiest hostel in town. We love a few drinks, great music, heaps of free stuff (including WiFi and surf trips) and a dash of art. If you are looking to meet new people, have a laugh, and to be a part of great activities then come join the party. Please be aware, we do love fun and we enjoy a social atmosphere, thus we do not turn off the lights and music at 10pm,


We have all the free stuff you could possibly desire. Free high-speed WiFi, Free surf trips, Free greyhound pickup (8am-8pm), Free professional pool table, Free playstation 3, free book exchange, Midday checkout of room (you can hang at the hostel until your bus), free tea/coffee/sugar, free DVD's/ board games, activities including wine tasting, trips to coastal walk, quizzes, pool comps and much more. We also offer Free surfboard hire and lifts to the closest beginner surf beach every morning.

Our location is perfect; we are the closest hostel to everything that matters. We are the only hostel within easy walking distance to the beach as well as the koala hospital, we are also the closest hostel to the bars and town centre. Just check out our location on the hostel map view thingy! We are not the closest hostel to Mordor if you happen to have a ring you are trying to dispose of.

Like you, we want to keep the world healthy; which is why we get our power directly from the sun via our recently installed solar panels. We also have filtered rainwater tanks for our showers and bathroom sinks.

We don’t turn the lights off at 2230. We love the night – we love to socialise. So 24 hour kitchen and lounge area are yours. Our main aim is to make you feel like the hostel is your home too.

We created this hostel for you. Yes specifically for you. If you choose a different hostel it will be like we planned you a party and you didn't show up.

We are young backpackers who simply love backpacking, we are creating the type of hostel we love finding in our adventures around the world. For this reason the hostel has a very unique atmosphere. Our focus is on creating a nice friendly environment where people can meet other guests easily, whether it be over a beer or through various activities.

We also wanted a hostel with great art. A good friend of ours recently won the Australian Raw awards visual artist of the year - she has been furiously painting all types of beauty on our walls.

Finally, we know what it's like to live on a budget, we have no hidden fees and we try to make everything either free or as cheap as possible for you, while keeping the tax man from repossessing our surfboards.

So if you are a little adventures, a little quirky, and want something different than your average ‘Mr Monopoly’ hostel, then come join us.

Welcome Vlkommen Bienvenue Huan ying Vitejte Velkommen Welkom Bonvenon Tere tulemast Tervetuloa Wolkom Willkommen

Our target market is Backpackers between the ages of 18-35. While we are happy to accept guests outside this age group (and some of our most amazing guests have been older), older guests should be aware that we are structured to appeal to a younger market. So if you are young at heart, arty and alternative - please join us, However if you are looking for a more big chain type hostel - then please seek accommodation at one of the other great hostels in town.

Sorry, we do not accept children in the hostel.
