This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This has been, by far, the best Backpackers I've ever stayed at!! Not only in New Zealand but anywhere. And I've travelled the World, several times. The accommodation is extremely clean, great facilities and excellent value for money. And above all - exceptionally friendly, welcoming staff, who cannot help you enough. If I ever go back to New Zealand I will definitely stay there again and will ensure I recommend it to friends/family/colleagues etc... Kindest regards and wishes Leigh-Ann
