Taupo Urban Retreat
We are only a couple of minutes walk to bars, cafes, shops, supermarkets, bus stops and the beautiful Lake Taupo. While you are visiting and enjoying all that Taupo has to offer, the friendly Urban crew aim to make sure that Taupo Urban Retreat Backpackers is your home away from home. With private rooms, small, and large dorms we are the perfect place for solo travelers, friends and groups to base themselves as they explore everything Taupo has to offer.
Taupo is the adventure capital of the North Island and boasts a wide array of attractions including skydiving, jet boating, bungy jumping, parasailing, kayaking, sailing and fishing to name a few! Our friendly and helpful staff are available to organise your activities and travel requirements including transport to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
