“Relaxed hostel in great location”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Host very welcoming, dorm tidy and beds comfortable. Windows not quite sound-proofed as they were said to be but all in all a great little hostel with great facilities for a decent price.

Short walk to the beach and Mt Maunganui so location-wise you couldn't ask for much more.

Stuart welcomed us with a great smile. Onda the cat guarded the door. Great atmosphere, really clean premises and quite spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. Located two minutes away from the beach, ten from the mount and amongst shops and restaurants, it doesn't get any better.
