Ray and Steve were absolutely amazing during my stay as I had to print off a whole load of work and they were more than accommodating. Thanks guys! The kitchens are lovely and the TV room is so warm. The whole place is really homely and definitely worth a stay.

Stayed here for one night with kiwi experience in the 'lounge,' which is literally a lounge with sofas, a TV and a wood burner! We had to walk outside to get to the bathroom which is an inconvenience. Kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Wifi didn't really work. Location is good, would recommend!

My friend and I ended up in the 'unit' room which housed about 12 of us. It was huge and came fully equipped with a kitchen, table and sofas with a little TV. It wasn't crammed at all though luckily! However, there was only one toilet in there for all 12 of us so I mostly used some others rather... More

Cooking doesn't feel like the usual battle royale-esque brawl you find in most hostels - theres plenty of forks for all! Theres a TV room with a fire should you need it -... More

I stayed only one night at this hostel and I was delighted with the stay. It was very quirky which was awesome with lots of paintings on the walls. The staff were all great and it was all very clean. I recommend hiring a surfboard from these guys and surfing early in the morning. I had a lot of fun... More
