    Stopped here with Stray. Very nice stop for the night. Large open areas to socialise both inside and outside (it was chucking it down with rain when I was there). Rooms were quite large, bed was comfortable. Didn't use the kitchens but both seemed OK....More

    Raglan is great but Karioi Lodge is positively dreamy. 10 years ago I visited New Zealand for my first international travel. The fine folks at Karioi taught me to surf, and set me up in the best hostel anywhere on the North or South Island....More

    I arrived here on the Stray bus. Raglan is a lovely surfing town. Inspiration point, accessed directly from the lodge, has some lovely photo opportunities and stunning views. Fantastic communal areas for chatting with our Stray team. Good kitchen facilities. Staff very friendly. Great!

    Love this hostel, 2 kitchens, a sauna, a cool warehouse for parties etc and glow worms in the drive way! Rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are super nice. There's even free homegrown fruit and you can purchase fresh eggs for very cheap....More

    Beautiful location stay uphill with some awesome views! Don't expect much coverage, you go there to sink into the nature and enjoy the quietness! Big lounge room to chill, cosy share rooms, friendly staff and pretty clean!
