    We had an awesome time at Waiheke Hostel Backpackers. It is a beautiful location and conveniently located to the walking vineyard tours and to town. Rachelle at the front desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. She made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We will definitely be back to the hostel and would highly recommend staying here!

    We loved this place. The bathrooms, the atmosphere, the proximity to the beach, the staff. It was a wonderful place and we wished we had stayed longer. The only thing we would have changed was switching to a double room instead of a 4 bed room- mainly because the smell of wet towels was prominent when the windows were closed.

    Great hostel!! You do have to go up a giant set of stairs to get there if you take the bus, but the view at the top makes the trek worth it. It's also right next to a wine trail, so you can walk to 4 or 5 wineries very easily (more info is provided on posters at the front desk). The hostel is spotlessly clean and the showers are very good. About a 5 min walk from the beach (just down the stairs) and 10-15 min walk to beach front restaurants.

    AMAZING location! Definitely worth the 187 steps! There is no supermarket near to the hostel. But it’s a lovely walk into the nearest town, which I think takes nearly an hour...ish. There is a bus service, $3.50 each way, which stops close to supermarket. Just come with a few supplies! Vending machine could be useful.... The hostel is very clean. The staff were lovely. Very friendly. You’ll soon get used to Whitney’s VERY LOUD laugh! Very close to the wineries. Through the door, turn left 🍷

    Great place to stay on Waiheke Island, especially for a weekend getaway or a short trip. Located just about a 5 minute walk downhill to Onetangi Beach where there are two really great cafe/restaurants along the beach, the hostel is close to two great wineries/vineyards as well out of the many on the island. Facilities were adequate considering the size of the hostel, and it was relatively clean as well.

    Staff were friendly enough and it's in a lovely spot, but the double rooms. Just aren't worth the cost. Better to get a dorm room or an Airbnb if you wanted privacy.
