Welcome to the Arts Factory Backpackers Lodge. We invite you to come and relax in our enchanted 5 acre, subtropical haven. Laze by the pool, swing in the hammocks and soak up the friendly atmosphere for which we are universally famous.
In the 70s, a group of hippies, locals and international artists created the Arts Factory! In the 80s it was an internationally recognized rock and roll venue. This is the birthplace of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay and it still maintains that original spirit today.
Located only 10 minutes walk from the beach, we offer a wide range of groovy accommodation and funky abodes, ranging from teepees, island bungalows, dorms, doubles and even jungle camping.
Our funky workshops include didgeridoo-making and yoga. Join in a game of table tennis, basketball or volleyball. Jump in our heated pool. Hang out in hip Byron Bay or relax on the spectacular beaches only ten minutes walk away.
If you are musically inclined, come and record your songs in paradise at Buzz Studio, the Arts Factorys very own recording studio!
Every evening in the Buddha Bar you can enjoy DJs, bands and live performances, as well as the Zany Talent Show every Monday night.
We are an integral part of the Arts Factory Village which incorporates the Historic Buddha Bar Restaurant, The Byron Lounge Cinema and Buddha Gardens Day Spa.
Dont miss the experience of a lifetime! Come stay with us ...relax, rejuvenate, recycle!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
When I had booked the hostel I received an email of the confirmationj booking of a 2 bed private room (shared bathroom). On my arrival as I had come from Scotland for a trip up the east of Australia and had paid 90 dollars a night for a cube which is a tent with a double bed and was not impressed as it was raining heavily and i eventually left during the night as I could not sleep due to the conditions. I feel that I was miss lead in the accomadation and if it had been a room which I thought it was it might have been a lot better. I feel that it was a total waste of money as when I approached the member of staff in relation to my complaint she stated that that was the room i had booked ,when I pointed out what the booking confirmed she was of no help and basically said that was it take it or leave it . I will never be back at the accomodation again as it is false advertising and for 90 dollars I got a descent room in a motel.
