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 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

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

I would give this place a negative rating if I could. The price was low and there's a reason why. I politely asked the front desk if I could use a different credit card after being rung up for a one night stay on Wed. March 14, 2012. The owners Brent and his wife are VERY rude, discourteous, and disrespectful.... More
