Only spent one night there but I really wish we could have done more. Everything about our stay was excellent and the staff were always very accomodating to our large group, even though we were very unorganised ;) It was my birthday during our stay and they really looked after us even though they only heard about it in passing. Really nice staff and location. Highly recommended!
I loved how kind the staff was. I loved how relaxed the atmosphere was .I will go there again for sure!
Wasnt happy in this Hostel. - When we arrived we were told lots of rules, one that it is forbidden to drink anything inside the house. Only for water in the night there is an expedition. High charges for everything u could imagine -The dorm room was actually an entrance area. People going in or out will walk trough there. There is also a toilet window connecting to this room that will alight the room every time someone back there uses the toilet. -cheap unstable beds, too short, very noisy
Nice place to go swimming on the beach, very close to the train station and easy to find. Food is good, you can get all your meals here - which is important as there is not too much else in the area. Definitely would recommend to stay here if going to Waiao
Cool vibes. Very chill. Nice place to stay at, it could be better with the bathroom situation 8people to a bathroom is a little much. But overall, grest place!

Great place with friendly staff who make a nice atmosphere. Location is awesome . 2 mins from train station and 5 seconds to the beach. Only slight complaint is only one bathroom (downstairs) shared by 6 people and any other guests. Nothing major but an extra toilet would help. Would definitely recommend and will return!!
Great location and awesome staff! Hoping to go again soon!!

Great spot for some beach time. Fantastic vibe in the hostel and staff are super friendly and helpful!
I did enjoy my stay. even it was only one night. I'll be back and try surfing next time!
I'm a return customer, try and come back to this place as much as possible. Typically dead quiet and peaceful in the weekdays, gets busier in the weekends, though its still an easy place to find some space to yourself. Right on the beach, with a healthy social atmosphere. Great place
