Racecourse Backpackers Hostel

Racecourse Backpackers Hostel

Welcome to Racecourse Backpackers Hostel. Our backpackers building was former race horse stables during the 1960s. Stables converted to backpacker rooms in 2003. After the conversion process, property acquired by Racecourse Backpackers Hostel as a backpacker, youth hostel, budget hotel in early 2009. Many improvements made since then. New Zealand owned and operated, by people who were formerly NZ tourists in the early 2000's. Operated by knowledgeable staff with a foundation in the real estate industry that is positive, professional and solution-driven to provide the very best service.
