About Rotorua Planet Backpackers

Rotorua Planet Backpackers is owned and run by people who know Rotorua and the region intimately. We have large and small dorms with double, twin rooms and a few single rooms available. All dorm rooms are spacious and clean. The property also has a fully equipped modern kitchen, relaxing lounge with Sky TV, free high speed WiFi, travel desk, free car parking just outside the hostel. We have our very own travel gurus who can book all your crazy and cultural activities and give any advice you need on your future travels in NZ and great discounts on many of the local attractions and activities. We want to make sure people have a good time and can meet new people.

We look forward to welcoming you for your stay in Rotorua

Accommodation Information

Our dorms are only 4 or 6 bed rooms, so much of the time you will only be with those you are travelling with. Rather than cram the rooms full we prefer to house people with their travelling companions, so often you are sleeping in rooms with only those you know. We have twin and single rooms available as well. All rooms have a desk and shelving/wardrobe space.

Location Information

Rotorua Planet Backpackers
We are in the heart of the city at 1080 Eruera Street, one block from supermarkets, very close to all the bars, restaurants, clubs, shops, and the shopping mall - you can't get more central than that. Walk everywhere and with 24 hour secure access it is a very safe place to stay.
