This is the kind of hostel, where you arrive and extend your staying straight away. Awesome staff, free spa/saune. Chilled common area. Wicked place near to the beach.
Paid 25$ per night for a 8dorm room. Cheap as.
Cheers guys.

This place is awesome! Me and my partner stayed 2 nights in a double room. It was not expensive and the room was fine but it's the whole place you pay for. Free rentals, wet suit and surf board hire, hot tub, Sauna, pizza oven and loads more. There is no TV in the lounge so it makes it really easy to meet people. We also experienced movie night where one of the owners brought us in popcorn while we all watched a movie by the fire! This backpackers also really does its bit for the environment too which we loved! I would definitely recommend - give them a call!!

Room Tip: Any room it doesn't matter - you'll be so chilled!

We had the private double room, cosy bed. The outdoor hot tub is fab in winter. The hostel staff are super friendly & make efforts to make a great hostel community. Pizza and quiz nights, free kayaking to a little cafe up the lake. The lounge is cosy with a log fire. Best hostel ever!

Room Tip: Waterside location

Raglan Backpackers is simply amazing. The facilities, the staff, the location and the vibe makes the hostel worth a visit. If you don't have time to surf while passing through Raglan (makes no sense) this hostel has something else for you to do. It could be yoga, slacklining, SUP, kayaking, hot-tub or sauna.. Just go!!

After travelling the world for 5 months this is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Super chilled and friendly environment which is only enhanced by the incredibly helpful staff. Clean rooms, warm showers, cheap surfboard rentals and a hot tub - what more could you want?!
