The Funky Green Voyager Backpackers

A comfortable, cozy atmosphere, a beautiful backyard, an awesome kitchen and friendly, helpful staff make our hostel the #1 choice in Rotorua. We will help you with anything! Be it a doctor’s appointment, the best mechanic for your car, a yoga studio or a massage.

We are “Green” because we are environmentally friendly (we are big on recycling, we also use non toxic cleaning and laundry products), have a green building and lots of green grass. We have free parking and barbecue use, a free information office with lots of very good discounts and Wifi is free and unlimited.
