Property Description

Waiheke Backpackers Hostel provides an amazing location and great value for money – just 40 minutes from downtown Auckland, New Zealand. It’s your very own piece of paradise - located above Onetangi Beach with stunning sea views.
Wake up to the sound of the seagulls or tui and head down the hill for a walk or run along Onetangi Beach. End up at a local beachside café, restaurant or shop for refreshments or a meal. Enjoy a stroll to a number of Waiheke Island vineyards.
We have comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ deck and a huge lawn overlooking the ocean.

The hostel was in pristine condition and the views are amazing. Just like most hostels in New Zealand it filled with 19-21 on working holiday visas It was kept clean at all times. The location is close to the bus stop, beach’s bad restaurants. I would definitely return here if I was ever back in the area.

Overall great place. There is quite a treck with your bags to get from the bus stop to the property (~200 steps). There is a lovely winery within walking distance, Casita Miro. A quiet and safe stay.

Lovely place, quite clean with an amazing view. The staff is really nice, but sometimes might be really loud early in the morning (around 6am) while cleaning, and as a guest I felt a lot leftout with all the hispanic talking from staff. Other than that, I would definitely recommend the place, it’s a nice price-quality ratio.
