    Lovely hostel with very friendly staff who gave great recommendations of how to spend our time. Nice outdoor area with grill and eating spaces. Facilities were clean and well-maintained. Friendly cats were a bonus! Would’ve loved to have stayed longer if time had allowed. Would definitely recommend.

    We stayed two nights in a private room. No issues with the bed or security (could lock the door) and showers were good. Communal kitchen wasn't the cleanest and the equipment in it needed to be washed again before use. The condition of the fridge was quite poor and in need of a deep clean. However, the staff were really nice and helpful and it was a great location as the Whangarei Falls were only 3 mins walk.

    This was a nice place to stay. It wasn’t a typical backpackers...more like a campground atmosphere. It was clean and comfortable. I really liked it. It would be perfect for a family.
