Property Description

Free unlimited WiFi, Netflix, discounted surfboard / wetsuit rental ($20 combo), and free bike use for guests.

We are the only Hostel in downtown Mount Maunganui and the closest Hostel to the Mount main beaches - an easy 2 minute walk!

Located in the heart of Mount's main street, in this small, clean and friendly backpackers, it is easy to meet like minded international travellers who are looking to kick back and relax or hit the beach and surf.

This gorgeous area has beautiful scenic walks, our magical Mauao mountain, hot salt water pools (discounted price for guests), excellent surfing, fishing, swimming, and not to mention cafes and bars right on your door step.

Come and relax in our friendly courtyard, or if outdoor adventure is more your style, look no further! Mount Backpackers can book swimming with dolphin tours, learn to surf packages, white water rafting, sky diving, blokarting, horse riding, night kayaking and plenty more.

Or, if you are running short of cash and looking for work over summer, local employers contact us first for workers. Winter work can also be arranged. Fruit picking starts in April and runs into September. (We can offer weekly rates once you arrive).

Come and share our piece of paradise! It will be hard to leave. We would love to have you! The Team (+ Onda, our resident cat)

Everything about the place was cramped & crowded - too many beds in the dorm, a kitchen that was too small for the number of people, small shower cubicles, & a common area that was more like a hallway than a lounge. The kitchen was dirty when I arrived with flies buzzing around, although it was mostly clean afterwards. Street noise was also a problem at night, even wearing earplugs. I'd recommend staying somewhere else if you can but with hostel closures there are only 2 left in Mt Maunganui.
