About Harbourside City Backpackers

Hilton location at backpacker prices - right on the water front!

This is the backpackers you want to stay in when in Tauranga - we are amongst bars and cafes with a huge balcony overlooking the harbour. We have a large common area and kitchen, internet café with 30min FREE internet, FREE bikes, FREE herbs & spices, activity booking office and have the city centre on our door step.

Our hostel has 72 beds, it is clean and safe and the staff will go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. We have a night warden for your security!

Tauranga is a great place to base yourself for a while, whether you want to enjoy the night life, the beautiful beaches or become a local and find some work.

Harbourside Backpackers is only a minutes' walk from the bus station and information centre, central to all banks and shopping, and is a short drive to the airport.

If you are running short of cash and looking for work over summer local employers contact us first for workers; the bars and cafes are always looking for employees. In winter work can also be arranged - kiwifruit picking/packing starts in April and runs into September. We work with honest contractors and can help with visas, bank accounts IRD numbers and can organise transport.

We would love to have you stay!
