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.

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.

    Well located 5 min walk to town center, very clean and comfy, feels like a home (and not a backpacker factory) especially thanks to the friendly staff and very kind, helpful and lovely manager Cecile. Don't hesitate it's a very nice place to stay!

    I loved this place! Tiny, well kept, and cozy. The fireplace in the corner of the common space made for a warm place to sit on a rainy day. My mates and I also got to have a movie night while we were there (awesome collection of DVDs/Blu Rays). Excellent location and good value for the money.

    Great hostel. Its'a bit smaller, gives a cosy and comfortable atmosphere which was nice. Location is great. Facilities are good and clean. Fireplace was so good on the cold days. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Only 1GB of free wifi a day. But then again, if you are out all day (i.e. walking) that is more than enough. Rooms had good space to store your luggage. Huge collection of DVD's to get throurgh the rainy days. Would definitely stay again, good value for money.

    Good hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The whole place has a casual communal atmosphere that was very nice. The beds were super comfortable, but it did get a little cold in the room and I could hear sounds from the other dorms. The views outside are wonderful. I couldn't figure out how to lock my dorm door from outside, but I never bothered asking either. You do only get 1gb of WiFi per day. But you can buy 3 more for $5 and the connection is very good. Office is closed from 12 to 2!

    Nice little place, we had a great couple of days here. Nice outside area to sit and relax in, only a couple of minutes walk to the main shops and free parking just outside. We weren't there much but we had a good couple of nights sleep, would stay again!

    Great location. Really nice outdoor space to relax in when the weather is good. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were a good size and had good cupboards with ability to lock your gear in if you have a padlock.

    The location and hostel were lovely. Only thing in the kitchen there is only a toaster oven, so not very big and the beds were very close to the ceiling. The staff were fine, the stand out member was Lyes, who went above and beyond and made our stay very welcoming. Would definitely stay here again!

    Located just a few minutes walk from the main city, I couldn't have asked for a better hostel. The staff were polite, knowledgeable, and helpful; the facilities were clean; and the people I met were amazing. Really felt like staying at a friend's house.
