It’s all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our position with stunning harbour views makes us very hard to beat, especially having a huge balcony on the second floor with waterfront views and overlooking The Strand with all the hustle and bustle below us. It's a great place to meet other travelers, share stories, and plan the next adventure. An extra treat for the early birds are the sunrises which are truly amazing! Harbourside City Backpackers can cater for the solo traveller to large groups, we offer affordable accommodation from dorm rooms to twins and doubles with or without a private bathroom, in the heart of Tauranga City Center. 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! Stay in our Tauranga backpackers and come and experience the beautiful Bay of Plenty yourself, where there is “Plenty for Everyone! “
