Stay at Arts Factory Lodge

The Arts Factory Lodge, budget accommodation in Byron Bay, was originally 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. Some say that it’s The ‘Birthplace’ of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay, The Arts Factory Lodge still maintains that original spirit today.

Your local guide to Byron Bay

The Arts Factory Lodge encapsulates the social fabric that defined the cultural revolution of the 70’s, stuck in a time capsule the Arts Factory has sustained the cultural spirit that Byron was built upon.

The unique sub-tropical oasis was the location setting for the feature film The Inbetweeners and is popular for fashion shoots, if you’re lucky you might just find yourself in the background!

The hippie character of this hostel draws you in with many booking to stay one night then find themselves leaving months or years later. It’s a cultural vortex with enriching workshops where you’ll learn to make and play a didgeridoo, bush tucker lessons and jewelry making sessions.

A short 5 minute walk into town you’ll find pristine beaches, street buskers and eclectic bars.

Learning to surf is a must ask our team about a Mojo Surf lesson!
