Welcome to Blackcurrant Backpackers! ようこそ! Willkommen! Selamat datang! 歡迎! Bienvenue!
We're Taupo's best option for comfort, convenience and great times with international friends.
Here you’ll find a bunk-free experience with single beds made up ready for your arrival and delightful en-suite bathrooms. We've renovated one of Taupo's most central hostels with the modern backpacker in mind.
Two minutes from the supermarkets and central bus station, we have a comfy DVD lounge, huge garden, massive balcony complete with BBQ and stunning views of Mt. Ngauruhoe (Mt. Doom) and beyond.
Whether you're an adrenaline junky keen to launch yourself from a plane at 15,000 feet, looking to set sail on the Great Lake or seeking peace and tranquillity along with some of New Zealand's most beautiful walks, our staff are here to make sure your visit lives up to expectations...aim high, people!
Our office hours are 8.30am - 8.30pm.
Check-ins outside of these hours must be pre-arranged with us.
