There is a wide range of New Zealand hostel accommodation available.
New Zealand is a very backpacker friendly country. From Northland at the top of the North Island to Southland the bottom of the South Island, backpackers, and people looking for cheap accommodation are well catered for.
If you are looking for cheap accommodation, then a hostel can be a great option. Most offer basic but comfortable accommodation, with the added advantage of usually being close to city centres. And these days, most hostels offer tour booking services, and a wealth of local knowledge about where to go and what to see and do.
We recommend using Hostelbookers and Hostelworld, two of the most experienced booking services in the world. They have a large range of accommodation in all parts of New Zealand, and can find the right hostel at the right price.
