    We just loved staying here and didn't want to leave. The whole place is just set up perfectly for backpackers and you can tell the two ladies who run it love what they do, thanks for such a warm welcome and being so helpful! We will definitely be back in the Summer :)

    4 of us travelling together in a rental car. The room we had was nice - had the 4 person dorm. Beds were a bit uncomfortable, cutting boards supporting the mattress in some spots. If you have access to a car Whitianga is a great spot to stay as you are close to Cathedral Cove, Newchums beach, and the town of Coromandel. The hostel is right across the street from the beach for chill days. Lots of friendly people when we were there.

    one of the best hostels in my time here in NZ so far. I loved the location right at the beach, the small appartements sharing the facilities only with a few rooms and the whole atmosphere. Staff is super nice and helpful in planning activities in/ around Whititanga. You can rent kayaks for free and get 1 GB of free Wifi for every 2 nights you're staying. Shops, Restaurants etc. are only a short walk away. Negative: missing lockers and Wifi is only really working at reception. Recommend it!

    Very calm and cosy feeling. Set out like houses so you get to know the people in your 'flat' well but less so for other areas. Very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and one of the best showers I've had whilst travelling!

    The hostel was pretty laid back and quiet) when I was there at least). Not super secure, as doors and windows were left open, but there weren’t a ton of people around and it seemed like a safe area. Short walk into town (few cafes and supermarkets and beach shops), and right across the street from the beach 👌

    The hostel was lovely however the 1 GB free internet was not strong enough to reach our room
