Because it's the only hostel there you don't really have a choice, but yeah it's a nice and special place, never been to something like that before. The owner is friendly, the facilities nice and so on. Good hostel:-)


This is a super fun place to stay. Very friendly staff. Transport to tracks can be arranged through the hostel. It's very easy to meet fellow travelers as there is a nice community spirit throughout the space. Karamea has beautiful sights nearby and feels nicely off the tourist track. I am very happy I stayed here.


Sweet hostel, super friendly staff and the coolest hostel ever!!


Haiko is a great hotel staff. Carole I also enjoyed the interview with Paul and the wonderful sushi dinner.
