We stayed here for 3 nights. The setting was very relaxing and the common areas were great - great views of the bay, separate spot for smokers, greenery. The place needs to upgrade a lot of it's equipment - life jackets and kayaks are worn out, and we spent over an hour trying to boil corn because we couldn't find... More

Have just spent four days in Tairua, where I found it pretty central for travelling round the Coromandel. The Hostel is well placed, near to the local amenities, with a lovely view of the estuary, large garden, and outside clothes line. My room was a double with ensuite, which was perfect for my stay, it was clean, quiet, linen provided.... More

The hostel is a little run down as is the equipment that can be borrowed. Forget the windsurfing gear or kayaks. The body boards are nice to have and the spades for hot water beach were really appreciated. Biggest complaint: the families that were also staying here. It seemed to be a stop for businessmen or families. That in itself... More

Booked a backpackers ensuite, large, clean room in beautiful surroundings. Could not fault this place at all. Close to town, however in peaceful location. Best backpackers we have stayed in, would defiantly recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights, found rooms to be clean and comfortable with access to a lovely back garden with ample seating & a 'sky deck'/ elevated terrace. Fab views. No problems with owners - on the contrary found them both to be friendly and helpful. Not charged for wifi.

I stayed here for one night with a friend and we actually quite liked this little backpackers. We didn't have to pay for wifi so there may be the possibly they have stopped charging for it. We had a room at the front which meant we had an amazing view of Mt Paku. The place was clean and I loved... More

We found the owners to be rude and confrontational. My brother and his wife stayed in the campsite. With the room you get the use of their kayaks. Myself and other members of our group stayed across the road in another campsite. We were going to rent the kayaks from the Tairua backpackers site. The sign on the office said... More

We stayed here whilst backpacking around NZ for 6 weeks. We loved Tairua, the harbour and Pacific beach were great. The Backpackers is situated overlooking the habour from the deck at the rear, a great location to chill out, gas barbecue on the deck etc The kitchen was reasonably well equipped and clean, fridges available for food storage. Bathrooms/showers were... More
