I took my baby and whanau to this beautiful little gem for her 7th birthday and we had the best time, hosted by an awesome relaxed kick back falla named STEVE, who made us feel at home and welcome and so enjoyable. My family came from near and far to celebrate her night with a huge feed and all the... More

I went twice to Orewa Backpackers and I must say it's a really nice backpacker Steeve is always here and you can chat with him it's always cool :) and Orewa it's a cosy city in which you can almost do everything! The backpacker is close from the beach and near the city as well !

I found Orewa backpackers by luck as I was using the street to do a U turn on my motorbike. I noticed the sign and stopped in for a look, to my surprise I found a beautifully located and superbly laid out lodging. I purchased a room and found it clean with a comfortable queen size bed and private. Good... More

We were very happy to be here! The manager was really helpful, and the atmosphere was just nice and easy going. Orewa has a wonderful beach, and is just a good alternative if you don't want to sleep in Auckland. The kitchen was clean, and the dorms nice and cosy. Nice and small, that's the way a hostel is supposed... More

Manager was unaware of our online booking.Pity we made it.This place needs some TLC.The room was just wide enough for a double bed,naked light bulb,no hooks,thin curtains and a chair. The information stated new bedding. A single thin sheet on a double bed?A pillow which was just the microfil stuffing in a pillow case? I think not.The kitchen was grubby... More

We spend 2 nights in this Backpackers and we really enjoy it ! Brad is really helpful and friendly. The place has been refurbished and it is clean, modern and green. We recommend it ! The only bad point is you have to take the car to go to Orewa city center

Nice and quiet backpackers hostel, close to Hatfields Beach, but not near shops or cafés. You really need to take the bus/ go for a bike ride or just walk.. Very friendly and relaxed supervisor. Love the fireplace! Nice gardens and nice views.

Very clean and friendly place to stay with wonderful views of the countryside. Manager Steve is onsite and he is doing a great job maintaining the "home away from home" feeling. A lot has changed in the last 12 months as the rooms are bright and well aired. Stayed 5 nights.
