Only 50MB of free wifi and must be accessed at reception only. Pay-for Tomi Zone internet available in rooms for a fee. Hostel is a good 15/20 walk out of town.
We were given an upgrade when we got to the hostel which was fantastic. The facilities were great. the staff were also really friendly and helpful. Would recommend this backpackers to everyone.

Great place to stay with lovely staff who are very helpful! Would recommend to anyone!
Its a fair way from the centre of town with a heavy backpack but once you are there the walk is more than worth it. Its a neat little place, spotlessly clean, good value for money and does the job for the short time you are likely to be in Whittianga. Margaret, the owner/manager is an absolute treasure and she and her staff work very hard to ensure that you enjoy your stay and take advantage of the many local sights and attractions. I'd go back tomorrow . . .
Pretty nice hostel. I legally liked the setup. Had a bit of an apartment style feel to it. There were two rooms in the 'apartment'... one private and one 4 bed dorm. the two rooms shared a TV room, kitchen and a bathroom, so no real concerns of too many people trying to access at the same time. I booked a 4 bed dorm. Beds were good. Staff was great. I would definitely stay there again. No Internet available in the rooms though.... had to go to reception area to access wifi.
Helpful staff, clean, and an awesome on the bay view from the room !!!
The hostel is right on the beach,and sits in an amazing place. During the winter there's not many people, but the few that are there make you feel welcome. The staff is friendly, and every morning a crew comes to clean the rooms. If you like nature, this is absolutely a must do.
