Really nice place too stay, though our room was a bit small for calling it a 5-star backpackersplace.


Stunning room with a view, 30 minute train to Wellington, safe, scenic, very friendly and clean!!


I would highly recommend this place it's spotless and perfect, staff is really really nice and the beds are comfy. not a party place, very chilled. One note: I never checked the location and was surprised it was that far away from town. 30m on a train. didn't matter in the end but quite a mission with heavy backpack. just know what you book, I didn't and still loved it.


C'est la meilleure auberge que j'ai jamais fait ! Certes c'est à demi heure de train de wellington mais c'est tellement agréable de s'endormir avec les bruits des vagues que mieux vaut être un peu a l'écart de la ville ! Je la recommande à 200% !


This was our favorite place to stay during our 2 weeks in New Zealand. Everything was lovely, the kitchen area, the lounge, the patio, the view, the weather, and the staff. We absolutely loved it here. Such a peaceful and relaxing place to be!


Staff were great, very helpful. Long term guests made it difficult to feel welcome. Can't fault the cleanliness. Beds very comfy. Train/bus service into Wellington close. Beautiful scenery.


No lookers


Lovely hostel by the beach. A nice place to spend Christmas.


Great place to stay, nice and quiet when you need it. Great staff, met some lovely people while staying there. Will definitely stay again.


What a lovely place to be. Moana Lodge was just stunning, very clean and cosy, our room had a beautiful view. The Lounge is so nice, you will stay forever. Nice Kitchen, bath and the staff was charming as well...
