Absolute great place to stay. We had a little bungalow for 2, free 500mb wifi, pool in front and of course nice company of Cooper the new little edition of the hostel. Owners are very nice and super helpful. This place accommodates also tent and campers.

So far the better accommodation stay as compared to previous motel in Orewa. The place is beside the falls but if you are driving , getting around is not an issue . The amenities are around the close distance to room. Worth the price in this area.

Stayed here at the end of April with 3 friends. Booked a 4 bed dorm, but were upgraded to a family room free of charge (even though it was Easter weekend when everything was crowded!). The room was nice enough, though it only had one outlet that we could find. But there was a fridge, hot water heater and a... More

Stayed here for one night, was picked up a bit later than planned after we got off our bus and we were also dropped off the following day. Check out is at 10am but we got told we'd be taken at 9:30am which seemed a bit odd. We stayed in a small private room which was fine although the walls... More

Great facilities and views of Whangarei from hillside location. Comfy beds. Friendly management both times I've stayed here. Quiet and best if you have a car as it is uphill and quite a walk from the town centre. Would definitely stay there again.

Just stayed here 5 nights and I've not experienced so many Mosquitos in one area.! Ok it's been a hot dry summer but sitting out (or even inside) of an evening and the insects get troublesome. Flies seemed attracted and maybe the estuary lower down the hill effected a good breeding ground? My room (1) had a fly screen affixed... More

Downside is that this youth hostel is situated up on the hill about 10-15 minutes walk from most of the bus operators who service town. Upside is that the hostel is in a nice quiet surburban street with good views over town. It only has a small number of rooms so that it is easy to get to use the... More

Andy and all her staff have always been very helpful. They welcome everybody into this hostel like it's there home. You won't be disappointed when you stay here. Great view of the city at night and centrally located.

My friend and I drove from Auckland up the east coast of Northland, down the west coast and back. We stayed here the first night of our road trip and thought it was so cozy and welcoming, not to mention the great nighttime view of the city below. The lady at the front desk was super nice and gave us... More
