We're on Byron Bay’s famous Lawson Street, less than a 5-minute stroll from the main beach. Cumbebin Swamp Nature Reserve is a 20-minute walk away. There's a public bus that takes about two hours from Ballina /Byron Gateway Airport to the main bus stop in town, a 7-minute walk from the hostel.
If you're not having a splash in our outdoor swimming pool, there's plenty at Aquarius Backpackers Byron Bay to keep you entertained – at no extra cost! We've got everything from free dinners (Thurs- Sat) to boogie board rentals. There's also free entertainment (hello, karaoke!). We think you've got it – there are a lot of freebies! We're a generous bunch!
We've got big mixed and female-only dorms 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.
