YHA Taupo Finlay Jack's Backpackers Reviews


Welcome to Blackcurrant Backpackers, our newly refurbished hostel in the town centre of Taupo! We are the closest hostel to the bus station and the supermarkets and with the friendliest staff in town to make sure that you have everything you need for a great stay in beautiful Taupo.

Purposely renovated with the new backpacker market in mind, our share rooms have single, sprung mattress beds, are fully made up with warm and cosy duvets and have hotel style private bathrooms. All of our double rooms boast sprung mattress queen size beds. The new kitchen/dining area is spacious and clean with even an oven for the budding chefs out there! The expansive deck and BBQ area has stunning views over the Lake to the Tongariro National Park and our large garden area is just great for chilling out in. Our new ‘den' and lounge with wide screen TV and internet café are now complete!

We look forward to seeing you at Blackcurrant soon!
