Matamata Backpackers

Hello and welcome to our family! We are your independently and locally run hostel.

We had a vision to create a small unique spot. A spot where the ambience is warm and welcoming. Where traveller’s can meet, share stories, experiences and leave with new found friendships. How travelling should be.

We are about a conscious way of living and invite you to join us in our mission toward sustainable hospitality. You will find this in many ways around our little hostel. From the big stuff (we get our energy from the sun), and the small stuff like recycled furniture and furnishings, natural cleaning products our very own herb garden.

We truly appreciate everyone who has chosen to stay with us and have made many friends over the years.

Thank you always,

Lauren and Herb.
