Brilliant Hostel! Close to everything, great staff, great facilities. I particularly liked the large couch/kitchen/hangout area. The room was great, ensuite bathroom and shower which meant I could leave shampoo and conditioner and not carry things everywhere. Also, large lock up cupboards for security, which was great! Only thing is if you do not like that much noise at night and you are there on a friday/weekend ask for a room on the 2nd floor away from social area.

This may have been my favorite hostel during my 8 week stay in New Zealand. The 4 bedroom dorm was a nice size, and there were large cupboards you could keep your belongings in. The shower was en-suite and nice. The location was great, maybe 50 meters from the beach and close to lots of restaurants and shops. They have bikes you can ride for free and the staff was extremely friendly. I had a fantastic experience while staying here, and would definitely stay there again.

This hostel was very quiet and didn't have much atmosphere despite the great common areas. The en-suite wet rooms soak the whole of the bathroom, but apart from this the hostel was good.

Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are trying to ensure the comfort of our guests, but also you stayed with us on the beginning of the season therefore it wasn't many people around at the time. Our bathrooms are specious, but they still require to have a window a bit open if you prefer very hot shower. Kind regards Lenka & Rohit

I had an awesome stay at the Saltwater Lodge - great staff, facilities, and atmosphere. It felt very clean, open, and welcoming. The bars in the area were a little loud, but not at unreasonable hours. Wish I had more stays like this - keep it up!
