Not far from the center, clean, rooms pretty nice and comfortable. Lots of DVD, small hostel so everybody is talking with each other. Really nice to stay if you want to explore the coromandel peninsula and cathedral cove ( but its not in whitianga, its in hahei ). Staff nice

This hostel was amazing. It had a great cozy and homey feeling to it. The owners are really nice understanding people and the location was perfect, close to a lot of things so you can just walk. We did get some food stolen but at no fault to the hostel, honestly it was one of the best hostels I've been... More

I do love this hostel. It's clean, quiet, people there are friendly. A little bit far away from the beach. Maybe 20min walk. But close supermarket. Especially it is cheap. I booked it via nakedsleep, it cost only $15 per night. Spend my last week in whitianga with this host, quite worthy. If only the weather go better.

We stayed here for 3 nights, we arrived around 3:30 pm and waited around 15 minutes outside the hostel until the manager appeared and told us she could not hear the bell from the back. At first we liked the hostel, mostly because it was partially empty. You have a basic breakfast included which is nice (toasts, cornflakes, butter, etc.).... More

I stayed at Turtle Cove for three nights as there was plenty to do and see around the area, particularly if (a) you like beaches and (b) you have a car or are good at hitching lifts with locals or fellow travellers. The hostel staff are very welcoming and down to earth, Maria is pretty much just one of the... More

It is the first time I have stayed in a dorm room at a backpackers and it had an en-suite bathroom!!! That just made it for me :-) It had a lovely outside area and rather close to the supermarket and pub. Would highly recommend it.

Turtle cove is a friendly, clean and extremely comfortable stay! I couldn't recommend it enough. Great value for money; fantastic mattress and free breakfast definitely got our day off to a good start. The facilities are all really clean. Plenty of nice space to chill out when you're not in your room, prefect for meeting people if you're travelling alone.... More

On a short tour of the Coromandel. Stayed here for a night. Great service, and very friendly. Nice spot in town, not far from the beach. Accommodation was great, clean and comfortable. Clean showers and toilets. Plenty of parking available. Comes with breakfast which was fine, all you needed and great to talk to others. Overall good value for money... More
