I came with a campervan fo one night and when I arrived Martin (the owner) said you're going to need 3 nights. He was right. I did need three. Martin and his assistant couldn't have been more helpful. I have warned them I will be back. Mind you the young people onsite were also incredibly friendly and chatty to an... More

The hot tub was nice and toasty. Pool, hot tub, grilling, full shared kitchen with everything you need but the food. A 5 minute walk to Whangarei Falls. The staff here was great. Very helpful and friendly.

Likely to be the best hostel I've ever visited! It's developed horizontally into sheds, which contain rooms, showers, kitchen, library and even a spa! The bedrooms are cleaned and very nice, and I appreciated that they make the beds instead of giving you the usual sheets (and this way they solved the usual problem of people stealing your bed). The... More

A guy called Martin is the only one working there. An Irish guy I think, at the first sight he can be a little rude. But after that he will really show you around and help you with whatever! He is really good. Slept in a 4 shared dorm, really much space and an own fridge and toaster. The place... More

Let's be fair. The size of the room is quite nice in comparison to most backpacker lodgers offered during our trip to the North Island of NZ. The room (double + bunks) we stayed was splendidly clean and spotless. The extra space for kitchenette offered us a real private space for a cooked family meal plus breakfast the next morning....

I only stayed one night and had the four bed dorm to myself. It came with a kitchenette with microwave, fridge and kettle. The facilities were clean and the staff were friendly. The free wifi voucher was good, but the lounge room could do with extra power points to charge devices. The location was good, outside of town but close... More

Stayed for two nights at this YHA which is conveniently located 3 minutes from Whangerei waterfall. Although it's a bit further from town, the owners are very friendly and will arrange a pick up if you phone them in advance. The first night, I had a whole lodge to myself (each 4-bed dorm is a self-contained cabin with its own... More

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.
