    Our first experience in a Hostel (because we couldn’t find anywhere else to stay!) and we were very pleasantly surprised at how clean it was and the ‘room mates’ were all very respectful and quiet. Bed was very comfortable and clean. Kitchen was very well equiped and spotless. The owner and staff obviously take pride providing a premium accommodation.

    What a wonderful backpackers, right on the edge of the Tauranga shopping area. The place has just been totally refurbished three months ago so it was very new looking. Amazing view of the harbour from the kitchen, lounge & balcony on the top floor. Rooms were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with equipment and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I'll be going back. Highly recommended.

    We loved our stay. Everything is so clean and new - with awesome views over the harbour. The location is central to everything as well as be able to walk 20 metres to swim in the sea. Beds comfy, great kitchen facilities and great showers. The staff were friendly and helpful too. I highly recommend staying here

    Really lovely hostel, it has only been open for 2 months and is beautifully decorated. The outdoor tables and hammocks give really nice sea views. The kitchen is huge with lots of storage space and fridges. Great location close to all the bars and restaurants and very clean. Easily one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. I will definitely be rebooking next time I am in Tauranga.

    Had a fantastic stay at Wanderlust, met some incredible people and shared some amazing experiences. The facilities are incredible, all very new and well looked after, and it’s located is not very far from the mount of you have a car, so not a big hassle for us. Our original plan was to spend our last night at the mount but we extended our stay an extra night because we loved it so much.
