We spent a couple of nights here over the holiday period and really enjoyed our stay. The cleaning staff were excellent - the rooms, bathroom and kitchen were spotless. Lesley the manager was great for providing info on the area and making us feel welcome. Cap'n Bob himself was so helpful especially when we ended up with a flat car... More

This is a fantastic hostel! Picture perfect location on the water front with the most amazing sunrises-get up early to see, so worth it. It's around a 15 minute walk to local supermarkets, bars etc. What really makes this place the best is Lesley, the super-friendly and helpful woman who runs it. She makes sure everything is spotlessly clean and... More

This is the first ever hostel I've stayed in and it was great. Clean, warm and the staff were really friendly. The room we were in was quiet too and the manager even recommend were to go onto when we stayed in Rotorua. I couldn't have asked for a better experience to kick start my stay in NZ!

I stayed here with my mate for 3 nights before going to Cape Reinga and another one on our way back as we really enjoyed that place! It's clean, spacious and has really good mattresses even on the bunks, the only downside is that there is no place to keep your night-stuff on the upper bunks which is common in... More

A very well presented hostel that is well looked after by its friendly helpful manager. There are plenty of places to sit down and relax including a lovely outdoor area. It is also conveniently located across the road from the beach. A special highlight for me was the grape vines which has some unique tasting grapes.

It's a very nice and clean hostel. One of the cleanest we've seen. Reception was very friendly and helpful. With a beautiful view on the sea, while eating breakfast or dinner on the balcony, I felt super relaxed. Cheers from the orange Mini drivers!
