About Arthouse

Ideal for backpackers, Arthouse is a brightly decorated adults-only hostel in the centre of Tauranga City, within a five-minute walk of Tauranga Art Gallery.

Whether in a mixed-bed dorm, female only, twin or double, each dormitory is individually styled with a funky vibe and brightly coloured walls. Some have large windows with an outdoor view.

Travellers can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi throughout their stay at this smoke and alcohol-free property. Parking is provided at the rear of the building and is free during the mornings and evenings.

A large, modern kitchen with top-quality utensils is available for all to use. Alternatively, The Bahama Hut, a cosy bar where travellers will find light meals and an extensive list of drinks, is about a five-minute walk from Arthouse.

Hairy Maclary & Friends is near the waterfront, about a ten-minute walk from the hostel, where the well-known little sculptures attract a fair amount of attention.

Positive Reviews

Funky vibe

The bright colour scheme throughout the hostel creates a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Guests also find the artwork that's found throughout really interesting, and the colourful beanbags just adds an extra special touch.

Awesome kitchen facilities

The kitchen is huge, and travellers love this modern and colourful area where they can cook to their heart's content. It's also an ideal place to make new friends, and what's more, most guests find it very clean.

Satisfying bathrooms

Guests are extremely satisfied with the cleanliness of the bathrooms, especially because many expect the standards of a hostel to be lower than those of a hotel. Travellers are also pleasantly surprised that they don't end up waiting in a queue for the bathrooms, and are satisfied that there are more than sufficient bathrooms for the total number of guests.

Negative Reviews

Parking is not ideal

Parking is provided at the back of the hostel, and it's free in the mornings and evenings. What guests are not comfortable with is the dodgy area where they have to park their vehicles. It doesn't feel like the safest place to be overnight.

Too much light

Some of the rooms have a stunning skylight which is great for admiring the view, but for those who want to sleep in a little, this is a bit of an issue. They find it tends to get very bright quite early, cancelling out any chance of sleeping in late.
