YHA Taupo, Finlay Jacks Backpackers

Recently refurbished hostel in the town centre of Taupo

Currently Lonely Planet’s “Our Pick” of places to stay, Finlay Jacks backpacker’s, Kiwi owned and operated. We are a fresh modern hostel with free quality wifi, Netflix, tea & coffee, spacious balcony, cosy TV lounge with x box 1, well equipped kitchen, plenty of off street parking and the friendliest staff around.

A hostel that revolves around our guests and ensuring their stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We like to think of ourselves as a fresh young hostel keeping up with the young generation of today offering things such as single beds (one room with bunks), en suites attached to the rooms, free quality wifi and Netflix for those quiet nights.

Two minutes from the supermarkets and central bus station or a 7 minute walk to our favourite pub Mulligans. Our staff have great local knowledge about the area and activities to do whilst in Taupo. Book direct with us for the best price and best advice.

Taupo is an absolute mecca for all things outdoors – from tramping to trout fishing, skydiving with Taupo Tandem or sailing on the Great Lake with our very own hostel yacht "Fearless".  There are endless mountain biking trails including the Great Lake Trail, part of the National NZ Cycleway.   If relaxing is more your style, you can treat yourself to a thermal hot water spa or you can experience a taste of Maori culture.   Taupo attracts not only international travellers but New Zealanders too so you can get a real sense of what New Zealand is all about when you stay here.

Please take a look at a our photo gallery or give us a call for more information.
