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

    Paradise on the Coast! - Loved this place the moment I saw it! Surf theme throughout with boards & wetsuits for hire. Homey atmosphere: courtyard, sauna, hot tub.Nice library. Central downtown location and right on the water. So relaxing, didn’t want to leave after 4 nights; and that was with “iffy” rainy weather. Superb, friendly staff. I’d come back here again1

    Perfect location in a cool little town. Cruisy staff. So nice to sit with the fire going in the evenings. No lockers but there’s a safe at the office free to use. The vibe is chilled out and feels ok to leave your things in your room.

    Really great location, good sized kitchen, staff were friendly. The hot tub is a pretty cool feature and the sauna. Would stay again and maybe try surfing. Had a very homely feel.
