This hostel got huge potenial. The owner is friendly and helpful, it's located 10 minutes walk from the town center and 20 minutes walk to the beach. Got a beautiful back yard, and heaps space for campers. Place is clean and nice, except for the kitchen fridges that seem like they never get clean. The thing I didn't like is that the people in the hostel are mostly long term with jobs, and they think they own the place. Every night they all sit on the door and blocking the entrance, smoke and it's getting into the building and being too loud in unreasonable hours, and no one is there to stop that.

A really nice family owned hostel. The owners are really helpfull and smiling. The place are clean (they have just made a renovation of the hole hostel) and have what you need though the Wi-Fi isn't the best.

Sylvia & Ale are amazing hosts, they make us feel at home since the first call, when we arrived as well and during our whole stay. I would like to reply to a few negatives comments I've seen, not to have any misunderstanding. This place is maybe not made for everyone indeed but : - kitchen is cleaned every day, yes there is a lot of food around because they are a lot of backpackers so that's normal ! And yes, there are flies around, it's New Zealand and it's summer! So everything is normal, and owners ask everyone to cover food to avoid it. - bathrooms and toilets are cleaned every day as well, and there are ENOUGH of them. - yes there are people sleeping in their van/car, that's make the price reduced and the place isn't a mess, everyone is organised. - wifi is free, works better at the reception and they put a lot of chairs and benches. - laundry isn't ALWAYS in use, owners are using it in the morning to... clean bedding and towels, and tea towels. Laundry is free, takes half an hour and clothes dry very fast with the fun. - don't know anything about rooms though I didn't visit but the place is full at the moment so I'm guessing people like it. - oven, microwave, sinks, baking trays, pots, fridges, freezers... you have everything in the kitchen, and sometimes free food from others backpackers. IN A WORD : I LOVE THIS PLACE. Good vibe, clean, nice facilites & awesome owners. :)

It was such a joy to spend 6 days at the beach house, The beautiful Italian couple that run the place are so inclusive, happy an supportive an delicious smells come from the kitchen. I met lots of exciting travelers, I love the spaciousness of the whole place. Easy walk to an amazing beach ,Tairua is nestled within an surrounded by mountains. Lots of good cafes, with WiFi . Hot water beach is 25 mins away its an amazing experience. An easy access to many tourist attractions. Enjoy your time

Management were friendly and helpful but the place is pretty grotty, our room was ok, clean sheets, bedside cabinet and shelves and a comfortable bed but some of the toilets weren't working, no hot water in one of the showers and the kitchen was a disgrace. With so many people staying long term boxes of food and dirty benches attracts flies which makes preparing of food not too pleasant. The car park is full of kids sleeping in their cars using the facilies. Dont even think about doing laundry here, with so many people the chance of finding the machine empty would be pretty slim. The place needs a good clean and guests need educating on basic food hygiene and respect for those that follow.
