  • Byron Bay - Byron Bay YHA

    Byron Bay YHA is one of the most centrally located backpacker hostel in Byron Bay. Just a few hundred metres from the beach and right in the heart of the town.

    The large, comfortable common areas and kitchen overlook the inviting swimming pool and BBQ. While the surrounding deck makes for the perfect spot to relax and unwind at the end of the day. When you’re not relaxing by the pool make use of the surfboards or body boards available at the hostel. Our free Wi-Fi hotspot also allows you to share your holiday photos right away.

    The facilities include both dorm style backpacker rooms and twin/double rooms with fans. Guests can choose to store their luggage securely in the hostel locker room. 

    YHA members get great discount on tours and activities, just ask at the hostel tour desk!

    We’re growing! YHA has just started work on a major expansion of Byron Bay YHA and next year we’ll open a whole new wing of the hostel. Whilst the work is underway, there may be some minor disruption and noise but we promise the result will be a new look YHA!
