My favorite part was how this hostel is nestled right in the middle of the rainforest. From reception, we got to walk down a dense jungle path in order to get to our cottage. We stayed in a double room in the same building as a dorm with about 6 other individuals. It was cute and fun. Our room was tiny, but we are easy to please. A beautiful walk through the rainforest gets you to an amazing DOC beach--watching the sunset as this beach was one of my favorite parts of my trip to New Zealand! We slept well thanks to a good group of other people in the building. Was a little wary not having any locks on the doors to secure our belongings, but we didn't have any problems with theft. In the main building, they have a great little "pantry" where you can buy fresh-made bread, muffins, and various cooking supplies you might need (flour, butter, breakfast cereal, granola bars, coffee, etc.).
