Welcome to Just The Ducks Nuts!Bookings here
We are an easy drive to many scenic walks and the local Bayhopper bus stop is just a short trot away. A few minutes walk takes you to the convenience of the Bureta shops, takeaways, dairy, cafes, Chapel Street shops (Briscoes, Rebel Sport, Reduced To Clear), petrol stations (cheapest petrol in Tauranga and Mount Maunganui) and even a Countdown supermarket! Amazing location, endless amenities!
Awesome outdoor garden with lots of private little nooks to enjoy some quiet time and a huge hammock all to yourself or to share with someone! Quiet, homely environment. We welcome mature and intelligent travellers with life experience, who have a healthy respect for themselves, their environment and others around them, as well as those who are like-minded.
We have a wide range of rooms and facilities to suit everyone. We are family-friendly and can cater to those travelling with little ones of all sizes, and are especially great for cyclists needing some respite from the elements. For those overseas travellers who would like to stay a little longer or work in Tauranga, we have great long term rates, just ask us! BOTH BBH and YHA cardholders get our discounted rates! We also extend the discounted rates to students from or those on attachment to the University of Waikato/ Coastal Marine Field Station, Bethlehem Tertiary Institute as well as the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic (Toi-Ohomai Institute of Technology)! We are just 10 minutes walk to the Coastal Marine Field Station or Toi-Ohomai City campus and are on a direct bus route to/from BTI.
We specialise in finding seasonal work (casual, short term, long term) and offer assistance with transportation where possible (see WORK page for more information).
COUNTDOWN SUPERMARKET NOW OPEN!
Planning to come to Tauranga in the summer? We are the closest hostel to a large supermarket! Just less than 5 minutes walk- your ice cream will still be frozen when you get back to the hostel!
