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...

We have a car so driving out to Plimmerton and enjoying relative peace and quiet was no problem. Otherwise, it is a 15-minute walk from train stop in a quiet area with a cafe or two nearby.


One of if not the best backpackers/hostel I have ever stayed at, very comfortable and super friendly staff.
