Hostels are the perfect accommodation option for anyone travelling New Zealand. We always look for a combo of great location, wifi, atmosphere and rating to ensure you’ll be sleeping easy.
SMALL GROUP TOUR TRAVELLERS
If you are travelling on one of our Small Group Tours accommodation is included at every overnight stop of your tour and is included in the overall price.
HOP-ON HOP-OFF TRAVELLERS
In the spirit of freedom and flexibility, accommodation is not included in the price of your Hop-on Hop-off bus pass. We reserve accommodation for you at every Kiwi Experience overnight stop on the first night; even in peak season when accommodation can be hard to come by. In the sweet spots such as Taupo and Franz Josef, we offer two nights guaranteed… and in Queenstown, we even offer three. We do appreciate that many customers prefer to have peace of mind and all outgoings budgeted for before setting off on their trip.
If you are one of these people, check out our Accommodation packs which are available for pre-purchase when you buy alongside a bus pass.
You can also add these to your booking at a later date by contacting our Reservations Team. Check out our preferred accommodation suppliers below, and view our bus timetable for pick up times.
