Harbourside City Backpacker’s is the only backpackers you want to stay in when in Tauranga. We are nestled amongst the bars and cafes and have the city center on our doorstep. It’s all about location! We are the center of town, and boast the best views in town. We have a huge balcony with stunning views overlooking the harbour, you never tire from vista as it changes throughout the day and if you get up early the sunrises are truly amazing.

The Backpackers is only a minutes' walk from the bus station and information center, central to all banks and shopping, and is a short drive to the airport and the beautiful golden sandy beach, Mount Maunganui, where many New Zealanders like to holiday.

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, the many walks or activities such as swimming with dolphins or glow worm kayaking - we can point you in the right direction and even give you some local top spots!

If you are running short of cash and looking for work local employers contact us first for workers. We work with local businesses, agencies and honest contractors; and can help with bank accounts, IRD numbers and even transport!

One night will turn into days... if you have the time!

Come and experience the beautiful Bay of Plenty, where there is “Plenty for Everyone! “

We would love to have you stay!
