Mount Backpackers
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I stayed here for three nights. Really liked it. I stayed in a 16 bed dorm but the room was set up in a way that it didn't feel like a 16 bed dorm at all. Maybe 8. Staff was all very friendly and helpful. Great rates. Good value. Excellent location close to everything - most importantly - the beach and the mount!

Host very welcoming, dorm tidy and beds comfortable. Windows not quite sound-proofed as they were said to be but all in all a great little hostel with great facilities for a decent price.

Short walk to the beach and Mt Maunganui so location-wise you couldn't ask for much more.

Stuart welcomed us with a great smile. Onda the cat guarded the door. Great atmosphere, really clean premises and quite spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. Located two minutes away from the beach, ten from the mount and amongst shops and restaurants, it doesn't get any better.
