Property Information

We're on Byron Bay’s famous Lawson Street, less than a 3-minute stroll from Main beach and the center of town.  Cumbebin Swamp Nature Reserve is a 20-minute walk away. There are shuttle buses that run from Ballina /Byron Gateway Airport to Byron or if you are travelling by bus, the main bus stop is only a 7-minute walk from the hostel. 

If you're not having a splash in our outdoor swimming pool, doing a free yoga class or catching some waves with our free boogie board rentals, there's plenty of other free activities to do at Aquarius to keep you entertained.  Our Café is open daily all year round for breakfast and Lunch where all guests receive a 10% discount as well as Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for Tapas, Pasta & Cocktails.  (P.N. as our Bar will be closed until further notice but guests are welcome to still use the space and BYO drinks)

We've got the most spacious dorms in Byron, mixed and female-only, all with en-suites. There are private rooms too, from simple budget options to luxe motel-style spa suites! You'll have bedding included, plus a locker for your valuables and big bags if you're headed out for a blissful sunbathing session on the beach in the day. If you're low on cash, we have a convenient ATM on site.
