Backpacker establishments are a very popular and fast-growing sector of the New Zealand accommodation industry. Guests are predominantly international, compared to Motels, Hotels and Holiday Parks, which are at this stage still mainly utilised by New Zealand based visitors.

The style of accommodation provided ranges from dormitory through to private ensuite rooms. The type of guest is also diverse, mostly younger people watching their budget, but there is a saying that there are plenty of “Gold Cards” in backpacks. Older travellers, choose to stay at these properties because they are seen as more sociable and provide a great deal more interaction with fellow guests.

While the majority of backpackers will be using public transport, or perhaps hitchhiking, a growing number do travel in their own cars.

Coffeys welcome the opportunity to offer backpacker businesses for sale throughout New Zealand, our listings in this category usually receive a high rate of enquiry.
