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.

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
