Hostels NZ

You can tell a lot about a destination by the quality of its budget accommodation. Good hostels? Good backpacker scene. Good nightlife. Good people. Good city.

There are exceptions to the rule, but I’ve found that most places where people put thought and care into their budget accommodation will tend to be welcoming and enjoyable for backpackers across the board.

The entire travel experience will be a good one.
