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 5 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

    Without a doubt one of the best hostels, probably the best one. I mean, what hostel has a hot tub? The staff is incredibly friendly, they go above and beyond. Great room, loads of stuff to do. And an absolutely fantastic atmosphere, the closest you'll be to feeling at home.

    Amazing hostel. I usually live out of my car, but decided to splurge on a hostel, was well worth it. We kayaked with great rental rates, enjoyed the jacuzzi, clean kitchens, and an all around great atmosphere of people for a solo traveller. Such helpful staff will definitely stay again! Thanks guys:)

    Very clean hostel with good vibes and an eye for details! Location is perfect since right in town, walking distance to shops, the river etc. WiFi and power outlets as well as a washing machine make life heaps easier, there's even a hot tub. You don't get keys to your room which I think is awesome so you don't have to think about taking them, relax you're in New Zealand no need to lock everything away! Would definitely stay there again!

    I stayed for three nights and had a good time. Lots of international travellers who are all really nice and open. The rooms are small and clean. There is a large living room and a hot tub or sauna. The staff is nice and friendly. Had a really good time.

    Great place to stay. Nice communal courtyard, use of sauna and hot tub, which was awesome. Available surfboards to hire and electric car for use to beach is a great idea. Nice dining and lounge for chilling out. Rooms clean, nice to have proper mattress too and a blanket additional to the duvet for the chillier nights. Staff friendly and helpful. Just couple of things to improve-a little more space for cooking-only two ovens and fridges for everyone to share (separate beer fridge!)

    Me and my friends loved our stay at this hostel- perfect waterfront location, where you could walk 5 mins and be on the main street. Lovely courtyard area with greenery, comfy hammocks, and a highlight being using the spa in the evening after a cold swim in the sea. Comfy beds and friendly staff and great kitchen and entertainment area. Only issues I had were that our room door was not lockable, no charging points by beds, and lack of railing on top bunk. Overall, I would reccomend this place :)
