    Great to back after so many years and to feel that "time" had barely changed. Just perfect. We will not leave it so long next time.

    One of my favourite hostels in New Zealand! I felt 100% comfortable & the owner is very friendly. It’s clean and you are able to watch the ocean while eating. Their fresh home made bread is delicious.

    A bit of a walk out of the town proper but perfect if you've got a car or time to walk down the beautiful beach into town. Lovely staff and great facilities. Would definitely stay again.

    My only negative comment is access for bikes. It is a shame the road from the houses on the other side of the highway doesn't continue on until opposite Birdsong. Lovely homely atmosphere and comfortable beds.
