    Great hostel on the waterfront! The staff were absolutely lovely. They were really accommodating and fun. I loved that they had a hot tub and a sauna. The gentleman on the desk recommended an absolutely hilarious place with hot pools that did not disappoint either. Activities everyday. Beautiful view. Nothing to complain about!

    LOVED IT! We were tossing up between this hostel and another and were super glad that we booked here. It's on the waterfront, one street down from the main shops, it has a spa, fireplace, facilities to hire surfboards, kayaks and bikes, and there was a really good vibe. We were the only Aussies there (that never happens - Aussies are everywhere!) and really loved the hidden gem that is Raglan. We can't wait to stay here again on our next trip, although, for longer period next time! :D

    Amazing place to stay in the centre of Raglan. Great vibes, great staff, great facilities. Not a party party hostel, but an easy and chill place to have some beers after a day of surfing

    Great vibe, great location, but let down by the bathrooms. I stayed midwinter and there was only one male and one unisex shower available to me. They were powered by solar heaters, so there was little water pressure and they didnt get very hot. Very little security, but it is a safe area.

    Loved my stay, kept extending. Super chill hostel, met some really great people here. There’s no security (they don’t even give you room keys), but you feel like you don’t need it and it was no problem at all. The hot tub is amazing. Common areas close at 10pm which staff enforce, but at least it helps you get up and be productive the next day!

    Nice place the but the security could be improved by providing lockers or even keys to the room. The place had a nice chilled atmosphere a lot of the guests did seem to be working but it was nice and friendly. Good facilities even a jacuzzi and sauna, it could be improved with more showers though as there was only one in the female bathroom.
