We were driving late from Cape Reinga to Paihia but staff were so patient in waiting for us at 11pm. We booked a studio type of accommodation. It was indeed very spacious for 4 persons. Rooms were clean, toilet and bathroom were huge and clean as well. This probably was the best accommodation we had in our 5 days of... More

We stayed a couple of nights in a lovely studio room. Room was spacious and clean and was a very good price. Staff were friendly and gave us some good local recommendations on where to eat. Hot pool was a bonus! Will be back again

By far the best and cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in It has a pool spa and free tennis courts to enjoy during the day. In the evenings you get best of both worlds a large courtyard to enjoy drinks with your fellow travellers.and It has quiet policy from 11 so a good nights sleep isn't a problem. They... More

Great location, very friendly staff, clean communal areas, swimming pool and hot tub! Walking distance to the nearest shops and beaches. I stayed here in Winter but I imagine it would be even better in summer!

The staff were so friendly and helpful whilst we stayed here. The hostel is clean and well kept. There was staff in the evening doing more cleaning too. The beds in the dorms are really comfortable. Having free wifi is amazing, and a Skype phone to call home for free. It's a great base to explore northland and some amazing... More

We spent two nights staying in a private room at this backpackers and were very happy with the experience. We arrived late and had a key left for us with clear check in instructions. The room was basic but quite nice and the shared bathroom was tidy and always free. Would definitely recommend. The place has a pool as well... More
