We have 72 beds in an historical building giving it character and a homely feeling. The staff will go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one, and are very knowledgeable to the area. Our social environment is great, our communal areas are big enough for groups of people to eat or chat together and every other week we organise a great night for everyone in the hostel who would like to participate. This varies from the usual national and international holidays that we celebrate to winning prizes at Bingo night or Hostel quizz night and sharing food at international dinner nights.? Tauranga is a great place just to visit for the weekend and even better to base yourself for a while. Whether you want to enjoy the nightlife, the beautiful beaches or become a local and find some work. Mount Maunganui is voted the best beach in New Zealand and is just over the bridge!
