This is a really nice hostel with good clean facilities all round. The big issue here is the very expensive wifi as other reviewers have mentioned. There is free wifi at the library in town but if like us you arrive at 5.30pm and leave the next morning this isn't much use to you. Switching wifi providers would to give some free or lower cost wifi would make this hostel pretty much perfect.
Enjoyed it very much. 1 problem- door locks and key. was uncomfortable and unreliable.

Really nice hostel,nice people but internet is quite expensive and there was only one toilet and two showers. Still we recommend staying here.
In contrast to most hostels in NZ Turtle Cove does not offer any kind of free wifi. Not even 100MB a day. The sleeping was good. Overall not more than avarage.
Lovely little hostel with nice double room units in garden. Comfortable and clean. No issues with noise and well located for easy walk into town.
Thoughly enjoyed my stay at this well run, clean hostel.
Our room was lovely, however the wifi was awful. Firstly I couldn't get it to work and the manager was less than helpful she said "I don't know how iPhones work" which is fair enough but she didn't even seem to know how the wifi worked at all! Secondly when I finally got it to "work" I got charged 5 times (which should have given me 5 days worth) however it was so on and off (mainly the latter) that I only got a few hours in total. My friend had a similar problem.
