Our rooms are better than the general standard Backpacking hostel rooms. We have 10 rooms that are identical units of round 25 sqm. each. Each unit is generous with a double bed and a single bed alongside. We have heaters and microwaves in each room, plus coffee making facilities.

All rooms are west facing and perfect in summer. You have a writing desk and 2 chairs, plus a wardrobe. Off the main room is a retro styled basin area with the bar style fridge, microwave which heads into the bathroom. In the bathroom you’ll find a 3/4 up slim line window – Toilet and shower over retro bath. 

Our rooms all have linen and towels ready for you and a flat screen tv.

If you are on the upper floor you may like to take your seat(s) out on the terrace and people watch the people that are heading into the adjacent supermarket (pak-n-save). Or you may just like to read a book and chill.

With free car-parking outside the units you can walk from the area into the Avenue. 

Wanganui Backpackers is an economical one stop accommodation with all the access to the hotel alongside.
