This place is so awesome! Had a blast there. I was there for 7 days and rented a car. That was perfect. About an 1 hour in to Auckland. Jeff the owner is awesome and the people you meet there aswell. Great place if you want to surf. Highly recommend. Just awesome!

Piha Homestay is, without a doubt, the best hostel I have ever been to. I stayed there for 5 days and have no regrets. It's situated in the secluded piha valley but with easy access to the beach and walking tracks. Geoff has done amazingly well in making the place by hand; there's big glass north facing windows, hidden wooden... More

First off, anyone visiting Auckland needs to go to Piha. Secondly, if you're going to Piha, you need to stay here...secluded location, small number of guests, excellent staff, surrounded by trees, chickens roaming free, short walk to the beach...it's a no-brainer!! Only bad thing was that I was only there overnight one night as part of a surfing trip, really... More

Only had one night here and it was well worth the visit. Easy walks to the waterfall and the beach. Very comfortable and relaxing place. The two girls working there was very nice and sweet. And nothing beats the fresh layer chicken eggs for breakfast.

A last minute decision to go to Piha was the best decision I made for our New Zealand trip. Needed a place to relax that was like home. Great accommodation located close to the local shops, beach and food places. Great walks just down the road and around the area. Awesome facilities, comfortable beds and very clean. Collection of movies... More

Simply a spiteful review after a request was declined for holding a wedding at the property. We are not a venue for weddings. This is another reminder to myself why. More

I spent 2 nights in the dorm. A bit more expensive than most backpackers but when you see the place you understand why! ;) The place is amazing, very nice and quiet. Very clean. Peaceful atmosphere. With everything you need. Even fresh eggs for 0,50 $. I slept very well. Enjoyed a good movie with the other girls staying there.... More

Stay one night in a dorm, it is super clear and warm and good location. It's just five ministers walk to the Piha falls walks and fun tracks around, of you like surfing, it's quite near the Piha beach, I wish I could come back someday and stay here longer.
