YHA Gisborne

Description

YHA Gisborne, a cosy and charming backpackers hostel, is set in spacious grounds within New Zealand’s sunniest city. Our backpacking guests love to relax in the sunshine or take in the many sights and activities that Gisborne has to offer. The hostel offers a warm and friendly atmosphere and is a very easy place to just chill out and unwind or take a walk to the surfing beaches at Wainui and Waikanae. Hire a bike and make sure you get up early to be the first in the world to see the sunrise of the new day at Wainui beach. 


YHA Gisborne is located in central Gisborne, only 15 minutes from the i-site and bus depot. Food and takeaway shops are just over the road, or make use of the well-equipped kitchen to whip up a meal to go with the great wines you’ve picked up from the Gisborne region.

YHA Gisborne comprises a variety of accommodation to suit any individual or group, available with 24-hour access. The hostel also has a large common room with a 42 inch TV, internet access (free data allotment per night), laundry and BBQ.
