Lonely Planet review
A homely hostel occupying a characterful house near Hamilton Gardens, friendly J’s offers good security, a newly renovated (but small) kitchen, free bikes and bright, tidy rooms. There’s a barbecue out the back and a Mongolian yurt lounge-space on the front lawn: sip a beer, strum a guitar and hope Ghengis Khan doesn't show up.
Our independent authors have visited Js Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Hamilton.
