“Best hostel in NZ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We visited Kahoe Farm Hostel because a friend insisted we stop. Frankly I thought it was going to be an ordinary hostel in a not-so-exciting area. Was I ever wrong! We travel extensively and this was one of our all time favorite accommodations. We booked one night in advance and stayed for four even though it played havoc on our itinerary. I'm no sure I can describe the magical pull this place had on us. It begins with the owners, Stephan and Lindsay, who are remarkably friendly and who welcomed us into their home as if we were dear friends. They, also, brought all the guests together making everyone feel comfortable. We spent many enjoyable meals sitting around there gorgeous antique table visiting with people from all over the world.
Stephan is a wonderful cook and you can order from a menu or there are facilities to prepare your own meals.
The nearby beaches were perhaps my favorite in all of NZ and the hosts are a wealth of information on helping to plan your time.
