Lovely cosy homely hostel. Really friendly staff, recommended a pub in town that served good food and we weren't disappointed. Would definitely recommend.

Super nice lady at the reception! The property grounds were nice, good location by the beach, not too long walk to town + near the Lost Springs hot pools (super relaxing and cool especially when it's dark and no kids around!). The hostel has units; ours was 2 bedrooms, kitchen+common area, bathroom and balcony. Sheets were clean, bed manageable, toilet and kitchen well cleaned but a bit old though. Unfortunately our kitchen area had just awful rotten meat/old fish smell, felt sick of the smell.

Lovely location. Not as central as others but nice to have views of the beach from your room!

A tad dirty and a little too small, staff could have been more informative about location.

Great spot in Whitianga and a perfect base to explore Coromandel. No need to look elsewhere, this is clearly the spot.

Only stayed for one night but was close to everything we wanted to see and you can't beat the price.

It's too bad there isn't a spot to hang out at the hostel. They wanted everyone to go hang out together at the beach. Little bit of a walk from town but overall a good place.

The receptionist was nice and accommodating for such a large group! Thank you for putting us all together and for making our stay a pleasant one. Great location, body boards, kitchen, facilities, DVDs -- felt just like a condo beach vacation. Wifi pretty spotty in rooms, however.
