    Beautiful, quiet location overlooking the Onetangi beach (breathtakingly beautiful and quiet, few people). bit far for shopping and restaurants which is the tradeoff, but I’m glad that I chose it, no regret. Forgot about their limited check-in hours (2 - 6PM) but the staff called me and we were able to check in outside the hours with no problem (grateful for that). Staff is super nice and helpful. Room is just like in the photos (small, clean, minimal). Adapters are also available for borrowing.

    This is the most wonderful hostel yet. The location can't be beat with that wonderful view of the bay, plenty of space outside to relax, ultra clean facilities, and plenty of fun things to do on the island. Only downfall is the internet which was subpar.

    What a beautiful setting!! Easy to get to from the ferry - last stop on the 50A local bus. Clean clean clean place. Small rooms with just 2 beds, lockers and closet too. Well equipped spotless kitchen. Friendly staff. Nice furniture in the lounge room (so many hostels have ratty old couches!) Easy walk to Casita Miro, my favorite winery of those I visited, to Obsidian Winery, the beach, a couple of delicious restaurants just 1k away. I highly recommend this hostel.

    Fabulous hostel! On the up-side, staff were helpful, friendly and available. The place was very clean, with lots of great places to hang out and chill. I slept out on the hammock on New Year's Eve, and it was lovely. Great views. On the down-side, as a back-packer, I wasn't expecting the 183 steps up the hillside from the bus stop -- the the view from the hostel into the bay was worth it. The space felt safe. Nearest grocery store is a 45 walk or 10 min bus ride away.

    The location is AMAZING, overlooking the stunning bay, and the environment is so chilled. Beach is easily accessible in less than 10 minutes. Spotlessly clean and perfect for solo travellers. The bus system on the island is great so getting around is super easy. I would 100% stay here again and definitely recommend.

    A delightful hostel on a beautiful island. Facilities were excellent and maintained. Location good after a steep climb up from the bus stop. Highly recommend.

    The hostel is great but there's a very long staircase you have to climb from the bus stop. Also, it's 3.50 to go anywhere on the bus just FYI for travelers since the hostel isn't walking distance to anything except the beach and 2 cafes

    Waheike Hostel is perfectly placed to be an amazing hostel, with great views of the beach and walking distance to the wineries (the vineyard walk was closed while we were there). Unfortunately we were bit disappointed following our stay. The remote location makes reaching the supermarket impossible (a bike hire or shuttle would be ideal) and the staff/long term stay guests had gotten so comfortable, they were rather unhelpful and kept us up all night chatting in the hallway. Improvements needed.
