Property Description

Kia ora, welcome to Wanaka and Mountain View Backpackers. We are a classic kiwi homely style backpackers with 29 beds. We are centrally located in the heart of Wanaka and just a few minutes walk to the shores of our magnificent lake and 'The Tree'! We pride ourselves in offering you a clean hostel and friendly service.
Close to the supermarket, Paradiso movie theater, and DOC office. We are a perfect location that is in town but not in the main street of town and have a large sheltered garden for relaxing in. Off street parking, free Wifi, free BBQ, hairdryers, wine glasses, coffee plungers, Backpacker phone and computer in the common area.
We love having adventurers stay; cycle tourers, Te Araroa trail walkers, Mountain climbers, skiers, snowboarders. We are adventure people who seek adventure minded folk.
Mt View changed ownership and management in September 2016. We are loving restoring this beautiful old home and replacing things and making it a better experience for the traveller. Lots of new things... :)
Mountain View Backpackers is a sociable hostel that makes an ideal alternative to the larger commercial chains.

    Easy 5 min walk to centre, nice little kitchen and lounge area, rooms warm and comfortable with lots of storage which is unusual and appreciated! Downsides were limited WiFi per day - modern smartphones burn through it even unintentionally! My dorm opened onto the garden and most people didn’t lock the door so not great security (although there are small valuables lockers). Staff mostly lovely, although found one member a bit patronising. Otherwise a comfortable stay and it’s well looked after.

    Great location in city center, easy street parking and 4 parking spaces available. Staff super friendly. Rooms clean and had heater, metal squeaky bunk beds. The shared bathroom was small but clean and showers were nice. Kitchen was large, not the cleanest. Common area was huge with computer, TV, books, games, etc. Beautiful outdoor area with tables, chairs, etc but was too cold to enjoy on this trip.

    Super sweet hostel to stay at for a few nights. Clean and tidy. Kitchen is a bit on the small side but as it was off season it was fine. Close to the town and shops which was great. Super friendly and helpful staff who make you feel at home. Beds are really comfy.
