We booked 2 nights and stayed 8. Aotearoa Hostel (Otherwise known as Benś place) is awesome - just outside of town, in a safe area with everything you need and walking distance to all the beaches! Its great value and Ben (the owner) is lovely - welcoming, laid back and really helpful. Loved the fact each room has its own kitchenette, as well as the BBQ and Pizza oven. If i return to Itacare, there is no where else I would stay - highly recommended! Thanks Ben for a great time :)


This hostel is about 15mins walk from the city centre, which is not terrible and it's quiet at night (good for sleeping). However, some better directions from the bus station (including an accurate map) to avoid a taxi would be nice. I liked that this place has a pool and the guys running it are really nice and helpful. The bed was comfy and shower good. Can't complain.


Aotearoa had a great atmosphere and the people were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to walk to local places and to buy food.
