The Arts Factory Lodge, an essential part of your journey!

The 'Arts Factory' was created in the 70's by hippies and local and international artists, in the 80's it was an internationally recognised rock and roll venue. The 'Birthplace' of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay, The Arts Factory Lodge still maintains that original spirit today. 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.

Located only 10 minutes walk from the beach this Byron Bay hostel offers a wide range of Groovy Accommodation, ranging from Teepees, Island Bungalows, Dorms, Doubles and even Jungle Camping.

Our Funky Workshops include Didgeridoo Making, African Drumming and Yoga. Join in a game of table tennis, basketball or volleyball. Jump in the pool. Hang out in hip Byron Bay or relax on the spectacular beaches. In the evening enjoy DJ's, Bands, Live Performances at the Byron Bay Brewery or the Zany Talent Show every Tuesday Night.

We are an integral part of the Arts Factory Village which incorporates the Historic Byron Bay Brewery, The Byron Lounge Cinema and Buddha Gardens Day Spa. And if you are musically inclined, come and record your songs in paradise at Byron Hive Studio, our very own recording studio!

Don't miss the 'Experience of a Lifetime'. Come stay at our Byron Bay hostel... Relax, Rejuvenate, Recycle!

The Arts Factory Lodge has heaps of facilities, unique to most backpackers hostels. A real bonus in mid winter, our communal games room also has a log fire in it, so there are no excuses to be cold in winter, not that it ever really gets that cold in Byron Bay.

The games room is equipped with pool tables, board games, internet terminals, plenty of seating with a view onto the swimming pool and the courtyard, music playing and a cosy log fire for your comfort. The games room is adjacent to the Surf Cafe and the Juice Bar in case you get the munchies or don’t feel like cooking in the communal kitchen.

Our onsite Café & Juicebar is open 8am – midnight and has everything you need… good value breakfasts, a selection of wraps, sushi & sandwiches for lunch and a great variety of $5 dinners available all day. It serves awesome coffee, fresh juices, smoothies & ultra thick milkshakes. There’s also chocolate, crisps (chips) and don’t forget the best damn brownies in Byron Bay! Then there’s all the supplies you might need – toothbrush, soap, sunscreen, rolling papers plus much, much, more.
