I really like the vibe of this place. Welcoming owners, cosey common areas and an overall laid back attitude. Also very important, you'll get a nice quiet night sleep here! Outside areas and reception area could use a sweep and some cobweb removal but other than that this hostel shouldn't change a thing to. It's a unique place. So good...

The first place i visited after arriving in Auckland in December 2015. The hostel and the owners are very relaxed, spend a lovely christmas there (and kept on extending my stay) and went back in May 2016.

I stayed here a while ago, but loved the whole look and design of the place - feels like a Tiki-Hut in the middle of the jungle! Coromandel is a mysterious and lovely area and this hostel fits the atmosphere perfectly.

This is the best backpacker I've stayed in the North Island. Just a nice, simple and cosy place. The solar shower outside in the garden definitely worth a try! Showering with a view on Coromandel's green hills was pretty cool. Would def recommend staying there!

I stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed my stay. I was in a 3 bed dorm, big enough and big windows. I loved the "hippie" atmosphere, the outside shower and the patio. Very nice owners. Only 10 minutes walk to the restaurants and shops. I would come back if I am back to Coromandel

The bed is comfortable, toilets and kitchen are clean, the common area is big and very comfortable, I love it very much. It costs $5 for a practically unlimited WIFI, we did not use it, it will be great if we could just pay a little (e.g. $1) for a few MB of WIFI as I just wanted to book...

I could not recommend this hostel more. It has a very relaxed vibe set away from the main road in the tiny Coromandel Town. To be honest there isn't a lot to do in the town, but there are some great walks and the staff are only too happy to point these out to you. The dorm room was clean...

Checked in here for five nights, we arrived disheveled, tired and hungry and left looking very refreshed. We stayed in a private room, both beds supplied with new mattresses, feather duvets and pillows and a good heater. The room itself was very spacious and clean. Bathrooms and kitchen were also clean. Simon was really nice and was always asking us...
