Hostels in Auckland

Hostels,, known here as backpacker's, are a major player in the tourist sleeping game in New Zealand. There are lots of budget travellers who come through New Zealand on round-the-world tickets and, with New Zealand being one of the more expensive destinations most RTWers will travel through, Kiwis have taken it upon themselves to set up numerous backpacker's around the country. What this means is that you will always find a bed somewhere. As you travel, you will get to know that some backpacker's are more well-known for their party scene than others. Take note depending on whether this is what you are looking for or trying to avoid. Most have communal kitchens where you may or may not find plates and utensils to use. If you find yourself wanting to cook but nothing is provided get down to the local Warehouse or Briscoes for the cheapest kitchenware that you won't mind leaving behind when you depart New Zealand. Backpacker's are not just for groups of "youth" (as in "youth hostel"). They can be great places for older travellers, solo travellers or those travelling with kids to meet people and feel a bit less isolated. Do your homework and you'll eventually get a sense of what places you prefer and always ring around during the busy season. There is a bed out there for you, but it may not always be your first choice.
