Well first of all ill start with the positives, location is perfect, it's a 30 second walk to the beach, and it's in the main 'beachy area of Muri. It's extremely cheap so you cannot moan at value for money, being a Brit we just aren't close to this sort of paradise our side of the world, it has a... More

I stayed here for three weeks in August and I had a wonderful stay here. This is the best budget place to stay on Rarotonga. There are about 10 guest rooms, with ample shared kitchen and patio facilities, outdoor dining tables and lounge areas, hammocks under the trees, and starfruit trees from which you are welcome to eat. The kitchen... More

I have a mixed review on this place. For the price and location, it is a great deal and most importantly, the atmosphere in the place and the other people I met while there, were all really great. It has more of a feel of a house than a hostel with a lot of people staying long term and the... More

This is a good option for budget travellers to have the accommodation on Muri beach. It is only 50 m from the beach. The central beach area is about 100 m walk along the beach or along the road that runs parallel to the beach. Its nothing flash, but the rooms are nice, clean, modern feel, and spacious. They do...

All the facilities you could need were provided and what a bargain. The manager was very friendly and I thought it was great that they had such a relaxing trusting environment but... More

We spent a lovely few weeks at this backpackers guest house in Raratonga. Shared rooms (2 people per room, doubles and twins available). The lady running the place picked us up from the airport about 11pm that night, despite us only booking the room the day before, and we woke up to a sunny morning and had breakfast on the... More
