The Hostelz.com Review

Apple Tree Backpackers is a small, private hostel with friendly staff and modern facilities. The hostel provides hot showers, unlimited Wi-Fi, and also other events like movie nights or parties.

The Location

Apple Tree Backpackers is located slightly out of the way from the town centre of Tauranga. Travelers who are not driving have to take a short, ten-minute ride on a local bus to get there. However, for those who do not mind the distance, the hostel is located right by the lake in a quiet corner off the main road. Travelers can also rent kayaks from the hostel for use in the lake. The hostel is also a convenient, fifteen-minute walk away from Countdown, a large supermarket.

For travelers who are planning to visit "The Mount," this hostel would not be the best option, because you would have to take a local feeder bus to get to the city centre, before transferring to another bus traveling toward The Mount. There is no direct bus from the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Bedrooms are extremely cramped, with no common spaces; there is also a lack of power sockets. However, the beds are sturdy and comfortable, and each bed is also equipped with a shelf for guests to store their phones and glasses. No lockers are provided.

The toilets are small and hot water is limited to only ten minutes; the water will turn freezing cold after ten minutes of use. Some of the cubicles have windows with no curtains, so it can be inconvenient for guests who value their privacy and modesty.

Common Spaces

There is a large, open field area in the middle of the hostel, with a little hut and hammocks. The hostel is also equipped with two TV lounges, one used for movie screening during movie nights, and the other for local television programs. The lounges are huge, with more than enough seats and space to go around.

The kitchen is well equipped with various cooking utensils. There are also shelves for food storage, and dining tables for guests. The hostel is equipped with three large fridges, but they are located at the entrance of the hostel, and can be inconvenient for guests to access when they are cooking.

Summary

Apple Tree Backpackers is a decent option for guests who prefer to stay by the lake, away from the city centre. However, it is quite a hassle to explore the area from this hostel, making it a bad option for travelers who rely on public transport or Intercity buses.

The best choice!

We stayed there for two nights and I will never regret this decision. The staff here are so welcoming, kind, and generous, they're keen to help you with everything. Accommodation is the best I've been to so far. Beds are clean and smell fresh, toilets and shower are always clean, kitchen is big enough for everybody. There are many places to chill from hammocks to fatboys. Just amazing!

Best hostel in Tauranaga

I stayed here recently, the manager so helpful got us to work on our first day, drive us in the car and made sure we knew how to get to work next day.

Very clean friendly and pleasant atmosphere. Had a movie night and free popcorn. Amazing...... free internet, very fast. I stayed longer than anticipated, great staff, lovely people and very accommodating going the extra mile to make sure that you have a good stay. Very supportive family friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Clean safe and big kitchen and modern. Great beds and well situated close to town . Can park car on the road, bikes available free to use an kayaks to use for guests.
