Hostel Byron Bay

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Byron Bay YHA is in the centre of this chic seaside town, 200 metres from the beach. Hire a surfboard or bike from the hostel and check out Byron's unspoilt beaches and great cycling trails. Relax by the heated pool, enjoy BBQ nights, and watch the sun set over Australia's eastern-most point. All rooms have fans and decks., YHA/HI members receive a minimum 10% off standard accommodation rates.

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!

We stayed during August whilst there was considerable building work going on - started early every morning. Byron Bay itself is an amazing location. The kitchen had very poor quality gas cooker hobs which exploded when lit - very scary and probably dangerous? Hope these are replaced with the building works.

Best hostel for space, location and friendly, helpful staff. A push on rules to keep kitchen clean would make this place perfect.
