Property Description

Raglan Backpackers is only two hours drive from Auckland, the seaside surf town of Raglan is the gem of the West Coast. Stay with us in our fun, friendly hostel and you’ll never want to leave.

Just be yourself, hang out with us and do what you feel like. With everything from super comfy beds, toasty hot tub and sunny courtyard hammocks to surfboard rentals, kayaks and yoga classes, Raglan Backpackers is the perfect base to enjoy all our town has to offer.

Our Eco-friendly backpackers has the best of both worlds – we’re right on the water and only a one minute walk from town, and all this at budget prices!

We have loads of activities for you to join in on, eg $39 all day surfing, $10 yoga classes, $5 bike rental , free hot tub and more.

We are sorry but from November-March we do not take group bookings of 4 or more people.

Our office closes at 8pm, so you will need to call us on the day if you want to arrange a late check in

Check out is 10am, but you are welcome to surf or kayak on the day, and have a shower/make lunch afterwards, we just ask you bring your belongings out of the room by 10 and we can store them at reception.

Any questions, please just ask! View House Rules

    Such a cool atmosphere at this hostel. A lot of solid travelers so it was easy to make friends. The hot tub also adds a nice touch! If you’re into sustainable travel this is the hostel to be at

    Really comfortable spot in the heart of Raglan. It’s a couple minutes to walk to the restaurants and cafes in town. Nice view overlooking the bay from the common areas. This is the spot to be if you want to be central in Raglan.

    Great hostel for meeting people - it seems to attract and foster a more chill and friendly vibe (in parts thanks to the kind of traveler raglan seems to attract). Bed was super comfy, and I even got one in 6 person dorm that wasn’t a bunk which was a treat. If you like yoga, be sure to take advantage of booking through the front desk as you get $10 classes at the nearby studio (vs $15 at the door)

    Very Good

    I have a spinal injury and i came to the backpackers for a rest. A staff member who worked at reception made fun of how i limp because my spine has two fractures and laughed openly at me with guests. They sang the umpa loompa song when they saw me walking and said its funny because she uses a mobility scooter. This is not a disability friendly place to stay. Please for your sake don't come to the backpackers if yourself or anyone with you has a physical or intellectual disability.
