“Valencia and oranges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Thanks to Stefan and his crew for a great stay. A terrific 3 nights in the Valencia cottage right in the orange groves. Enjoyed the fresh oranges and mandarines and the overall setting. Very relaxing and made special with the quality and cleanliness of the cottage and hostel area. Love the black Lab Nika, reminded us of our Lab left back home in France. Top marks guys for a splendid holiday location. Good luck with your future plans for the hostel. Dave and Lyn.

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

Thank you for an awesome stay. Your hostel is inviting, warm and friendly. The standard of the accommodation is exceptional and the friendliness of the staff is admirable. My daughter loved all the cute and nice animals and I loved the pool and the eco friendly features. Thanks for a wonderful stay we will certainly be back.

Room Tip: pick one of the cabins. It's very affordable and you live privately in the citrus orchard with t...

We have had an amazing stay here, in fact we were loathe to go! We are in our 60's and were so comfortable in Tangelo Cottage. Absolutely everything we needed was either here or provided for us with a smile, including as many oranges as we could possibly eat and more. The backpackers lodge was also amazing. Spotlessly clean and with a swimming pool by the back door. If you are visiting the Bay of Islands there is no other place to stay.

We stayed for 3 nights in Tangelo cottage whilst exploring the area. What a great place nestled in the orchard. The cottage was great! Very clean, very comfortable bed, very well stocked with everything you would need, free WiFi, very friendly. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. We are a couple in our 60's and not back packers, so please don't be put off by the "Hostel" name.

our room was occupied but we could stay in the very clean and luxury chalets in the big orchard ,
during the 5 weeks in NZ, Kerikeri Farm Hostel was the best ! In the neighbourhood you can visit the most interesting spots;

We stayed in Kerikeri Farm Hostel in January and it was just great. The cottage was clean and lovely, in a beautiful orchard. There is a nice swimming-pool, a trempoline for kids, free use of the Internet...The manager, Steffen was very helpful and nice and took time to show the farm animals to our two little girls who were very happy feeding them. The Kerikeri Farm Hostel was definitely the most charming and welcoming accomodation we've had in 16 days in NZ.
