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, 1 GB WiFi free per day, free BBQ, hairdryers, wine glasses, coffee plungers, Backpacker phone and computer in the common area. Lockers in all rooms, and extra lockers in the hallway. Gear storage if you arrive early.
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... :) Lockable lockers in all rooms and usb plugs.

Mountain View Backpackers is a sociable hostel that makes an ideal alternative to the larger commercial chains.

    Nice hostel. Situated at walking distance from city center. Kitchen, lounge and backyard was spacious. Staff was friendly and cooperative. Parking available.

    Very Good

    Pretty average place, found the rooms quite cramped by the time stuff is on the floor. Bed was clean and so were toilets and showers. Ideal for a few nights stay. My main criticism is that the plugs in my room didnt work and it wasnt sorted out so had to charge all my devices in common room which was a bit of a pain

    Staff were friendly and welcoming and there was a nice view from the garden. Sadly non of the power point were working in the room so had to charge everything in communal areas. The shower cubicles in the outside building could do with a curtain devider so you can change in them too, as a mixed dorm and showers was not comfortable with this so would use disabled shower room. Was given key for one door but not the other in the room so people in the same block could just walk in.

    Hostel dorms are very very small and cramped. 1 outlet in a 6 bed room. Not enough bathrooms or sinks. Horrible and dirty showers. Not comfortable at all.
