Hostel Overview: Would you go back? I’d really like to.
This was a pretty quick overnight for me, but once I saw that it was in the heart of a pretty cool marina area, I wished I was staying longer. It was a quick trip to the beach and seems like there is so much to do in Tauranga. The hostel even offers bikes to explore and has a ton of different activities that they’ll connect you with.
Need to Know: Parking is hit or miss, and you have to pay during the day.
Pros/Cons: Great location, good kitchen, outlets everywhere. 1 hour WiFi.
