We are the only Hostel in downtown Mount Maunganui and the closest Hostel to the Mount main beaches

Located in the heart of Mount's main street, in this small, clean and friendly backpackers, it is easy to meet like minded international travellers who are looking to kick back and relax or hit the beach and surf.

This gorgeous area has beautiful scenic walks, hotpools, excellent surfing, fishing, swimming, and not to mention cafes and bars right on your door step.

Come and relax in our friendly internet cafe, or if outdoors is more your style, look no further! Mount Backpackers can book swimming with dolphin tours, learn to surf packages, white water rafting, sky diving, blokarting, horse riding, night kayaking and plenty more.

Or, if you are running short of cash and looking for work over summer, local employers contact us first for workers. Winter work can also be arranged. Fruit picking starts in April and runs into September. (We offer weekly rates once you arrive).

Come and share our piece of paradise! It will be hard to leave. We would love to have you! The Team (+ Onda, our resident cat)

    This place was awesome. Super friendly staff, great atmosphere with lots of chilling space to meet people.. Nice rooms and decently comfortable beds. Free wifi was a bonus and the location was ideal! So central. Also offer surf and bike rentals and with the great staff you can get tons of tips of what to do and where to go. Kitchen was minimally stocked with supplies and could have been cleaner but nothing terrible. I'll be back!
