Stayed one night in August 2010 in this lovely, quiet and very clean hostel just out of Whangarei, where we would have had the best night sleep in all our trip around New Zealand, if the noisy German couple staying next door hadn't been so loud at night. (Walls are pretty thin)
The location and scenery are pretty amazing, and a walk around to Abbey Caves (with gear kindly lent by the hostel owners) is simply the best way to start the day! Don't miss it!
