“Funky good value”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

These are classic old school cabins, just the basics (seriously - this is not the ritz) but all you need and good value.. Management are great with good advice on local highlights. Karamea and the northern West Coast has some of NZs most beautiful scenery, and this is an excellent base to explore from.

Reviewed April 5, 2011

For the price we paid we weren't happy with the quality. This place is aimed at the young young backpacker traveller hence the weird colour scheme. A BBQ was advertised as available but when I enquired about it, it was out of gas. I doubt whether it even existed. The cooker was old & wobbly, the shower tiny.

Room Tip: Not a nice place to stay

We stayed here in December 2010 and really enjoyed our stay. The Baches are brightly coloured and inside the decor took be back to the 1970's (but in a good way). Outside the kitchen window, chickens roamed around and we could feed them our scraps by throwing them outside the window. The place was clearn and quiet and the hosts were very friendly (thanks for the beers).

The price per night was very reasonable.

We had a really enjoyable stay here.
