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 is by FAR the best hostel I have stayed at. The staff is super friendly and despite what some of the other comments say about being "dirty" I can say I did not share the same experience. It was not noisy either. You are paying $25-30 for a hostel, don't expect Buckingham Palace and you will have the time of your life.
