With this in mind, TNT Magazine has found the top accommodation spots across New Zealand.

Every year we host the Golden Backpack Awards, which recognise those in the travel industry who are working extra hard to make visitors to Australia and New Zealand have the experiences of a lifetime.

Even better? The finalists are voted for by the backpackers themselves, and so you can sleep peacefully knowing these places of accommodation across New Zealand have been given the seal of approval from fellow travellers.

From comfy beds with fresh linen and roof-top swimming pools to awesome staff and prime locations, these places of accommodation across NZ have been voted as the top in the country. To find out the overall winner, announced November 6, keep an eye on our website.
