WiFi is only free for 30 minutes, good table tennis table and games, poor location

Hi. Thanks for your review! Our WIFI is free, and additional can be purchased for $1 an hour, OR better yet, its free at the library right by us. We offer a quiet location just 600m from downtown, with bus stops right outside, we are the closest hostel to the supermarket, and beach is less than 5 minutes away - I'd say that was pretty awesome location. Plus with free bikes, Tauranga is only a 10minute bike ride away! Hope you are enjoying your travels in NZ! Thanks Brooke


Very nice personal.honest and reliable

Thanks! It was great having you stay, glad we could get your key deposit back to you! Hope you are enjoying your travels and we are happy you found our hostel a great value for money with awesome location! Hope to see you soon, Peace, Love & Sandy Feet Brooke (Manager)


This hostel is great! Brooke & Tash were amazing with regards to the booking itself and answered all my questions prior to arrival. When we did arrive, they gave us heaps of information about what was happening in the area and about the facilities - even with a grand tour of the hostel. The shower pressure was good and was nice to have a hairdryer in the bathroom for the ladies. The rooms were spacious enough and the fan in the room was appreciated! Great stay all round. Thanks!

Hi Thanks for staying with us - it was great to have you & your friends stay with us. We appreciate your attention to detail & loved you managed to climb the Mount to watch the sunrise! Tick that off your bucket list! Hope to see you again next Long Weekend, as there is always something happening in the area - No place you'd rather be, than in Mt Maunganui!

Thanks for staying with us and enjoying our facility! We have just upgraded the bathrooms even more, so you'll be pleased with the improvements. Wednesday night is the Ping Pong Championship, and there'll always be 2 winners! Enjoy the adventure, Peace, Love & Sandy Feet Brooke (Manager)
