After completing a 90-mile Beach trek it was s welcome relief to stay a couple of nights at this place. It was quiet, cheap $25+ for YHA members, had adequate cooking facilities, laundry. Front desk even sells basic groceries, including beer and delicious cider. Note, that hostelling is not what they primarily gear towards. It's a caravan park near a... More

We just spent one night here, and My back was happy about that. The beds weren't comfy at all, The matress was rather like a hammock. But still, the Staff was very friendly, The kitchen Big enough and finally a Big carpark. The 90 Mile Beach is just around the corner which is really nice :)

There is literally no reason at all to visit this hostel. There is nothing to do in Ahipara or a twenty mile radius once the novelty of being a prohibitively long walk from 90 Mile Beach has subsided. The hostel was empty so I got a good night's sleep, but I didn't go travelling to have wet dreams. Average facilities... More

Stayed here recently while hiking thru New Zealand. Beautiful, well-maintained and clean facilities. Lovely grounds with tropical flowers. Super nice staff. Be sure to bring your own food and drinks to Ahipara as its a very small coastal town.

This a great hostel in a lovely setting. Stayed in a simple cabin that was very clean and tidy and great value for money. 10 min walk from start of 90 beach and a great base to travel round northland from.

Location Ahipara is a small town. From the backpacker to the next small supermarket it's a 20 minute walk. The next big supermarket is in Kaitaia (Pak 'n' Sav). The backpacker's location is very quite and relaxing and it's near to the great 90 Mile Beach. Stuff Friendly but a little bit slow! Our YHA membership wasn't activated by them.... More

We are a middle aged couple who have returned from 3 weeks travel on the north island of New Zealand. We stayed in a number of YHAs, and also other accommodation, and our reviews of YHAs will be based on TWIN ROOM accommodation. YHA Apihara is situated in the middle of a caravan park. It is close to the beach,... More
