Giving Back

In the heart of every person with Wanderlust is also the deep desire to help protect our precious experiences for future generations and give back in some way as a small sign of our gratitude for all that we have today. We do what we can to tread lightly on this land, be gentle to our waters and oceans, and show kindness to the people we meet.

Here at Wanderlust we will continue to strive to be more sustainable in everything we do. We minimalize impact on land by sorting and recycling our rubbish, using eco-friendly cleaning products, sustainable bedding, saving power by USB charging points and LED lights, saving water by minimalizing the use of water and reducing our use of plastic. We are also involved in several local and national causes. We invite you to support these wonderful initiatives with us.

Buy a Wanderlust keychain, and $1 will be donated to Sea Shepherd New Zealand. Sea Shepherd are an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that campaigns to defend, conserve, and protect the world’s oceans. Sea Shepherd NZ take action to expose and confront illegal activities on our high seas such as illegal whaling and fishing. So help us to protect our oceans and buy yourself a Wanderlust key chain at reception.

I stayed here for two weeks. This hostel had a very good vibe, everyone was always socializing upstairs rather than being wired to a screen. Staff was very polite, great location. All in all great time, will definitely be coming back for a bit soon. Cheers!

What an amazing place with such an amazing view. The staff are so friendly and kind. The kitchen is right on the balcony and its breath taking. Whenever you travel anywhere you find one place that is your new home. This is definitely mine :)
