Had a great time. An middle aged couple travelling and found it really well set out and convenient. Hosts were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Company was congenial with very good balance of community and individual areas. A drawback was the inconvenience of the Internet, which seemed to run out very quickly. Location was excellent and convenient.

Stayed: November 2012

I stayed here recently and it met everything I was looking for. Very clean, safe , comfortable, quiet and friendly not to mention amazing value for money. The hosts of this place are amazing and even took me into the city to catch my bus as the buses into the city had not started that early. (very impressive!!)

There is a good mixture of guests staying here too from younger backpackers to elderly guests.
It is very central and you don't get the noise from the town. The amenities are amazing and the self catering kitchen has everything you need, and because the place is not plastered with rules and regulations everyone works on a respect basis and everything is kept clean and tidy.

There are lots of different options also depending on what you are looking for or need.

I will definitely come back here....SOON!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are good depends what you are looking for

We stayed here when visiting Tauranga during our 3 week trip to New Zealand. We had wanted to explore and climb Mt. Maunganui, however, on the day we arrived (our only day in this location), it was pouring rain and continued for the entire day and into the night.

The hosts were so kind and upgraded us to a larger room for no extra cost as we'd be staying indoors for the most part because of the rain. So kind! Thank you! Your kind gesture really stuck with us and helped us to not feel so down about missing Mt. Maunganui :)

Lovely place. Clean, light filled bedrooms (small, but that's all you need for the price). Great big kitchen and living room. We came back and stayed a second time at the end of our trip. Friendly, happy owners.
