Please note: Murwillumbah YHA is currently closed until further notice.

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

Murwillumbah YHA is an original-style hostel, located right on the banks of the Tweed River. It is small and cosy – a place to relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. 

Being a small hostel, guests can easily meet and chat. Free ice- cream is served most nights at 9pm to gather guests to socialize. The house was originally a ferry captain's home featuring riverside gardens and now has a quirky colourful décor and homely atmosphere.

Stunning views of World Heritage listed Mt Warning and the Tweed River can be viewed from the hostel balcony. Scenic sunsets are an evening photographic treat. The Margaret Ollie Art Gallery is only 2.5 km from the YHA. This cosy backpacker accommodation makes a great base to explore Mount Warning and the surrounding national parks, rainforest and waterfalls. The hostel has free Wi-Fi hotspot and premium Wi-Fi (paid).
