ABOUT THE OWNER
Welcome to my backpackers!
My name is Arne and I am the lucky owner of this wonderfull little Backpackers since March 2012. I am from the Netherlands, and moved to New Zealand by the end of 2009.
I just love the New Zealand outdoors and when I'm not working you'll find me on a horse, mountain bike or on foot exploring the stunning surroundings of Hanmer Springs.
I have been working in tourism for the last 11 years and have been lucky enough to have worked in The Netherlands, France, Norway, China, Tibet, Australia and New Zealand.
From all the places I have visited, Hanmer Springs realy stood out on my first visit in 2006. When I was able to come back to live in New Zealand in 2009 it was an easy choice to opt for this wonderful little alpine village. Hanmer is surrounded by stunning conservation areas and has a lovely community. What’s not to love?
Thank you for showing interest in my hostel. I hope we can welcome you at the best hostel in Hanmer Springs!
