“Little Gem - Fantastic value & very friendly”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We were in the area visiting friends and needed somewhere to stay for a couple of days. We haven't stayed in a backpackers for 20 + years so were a little nervous. We shouldn't have been, this was fantastic, a home away from home. It was low season and we were the only ones there but we were made to feel very welcome. It was more like staying at a friends house than a backpackers.

Ask the owners for stuff to do as they organised so much for us on our little stay. Went fishing, visited the waipoua forest and went bone carving. But most of all just relaxed.

We will definitely come back, in the summer must be awesome

I was referred to this accommodation by Queens St. Backpackers in Auckland, NZ. AMAZING! I pulled in after sunset to check in with the owner Sue. She gave me the tour and many suggestions of activities to do while I was driving around the North Part. The kitchen and bathrooms are very clean. Sue keeps this place immaculate! The bunk beds are super comfortable. There are no heaters in the room, but usually you don’t need them, I just happen to be there on a cold night but managed with the warm blankets. The back porch and common area are very cozy to hang out in. There is no internet or breakfast, but you have all the supplies you need in the kitchen to cook yourself. This is a little town so not much to do, however you can go hiking, take a walk on the beach, and get some great photos. I would stay here one night if you aren’t planning on hiking all day, as taking pictures and hanging on the beach can be done in the morning before you head out to your next destination.

This is a wonderful place and feels like home from home. Good size kitchen, clean bathroom facilities and comfy beds. Lovely garden with lots of quirkly little extras. Wonderful host, always good for a chat and a laugh and with tons of travel advice and information about things to see and do. =^..^= Loved the cats! =^..^=

Three of us stayed here in a 6 bed dorm and really liked the place instantly. Friendly staff, super clean facilities, loads of kitchen appliances and crockery plus a cute cat. Would stay again if we come back this way.

We wanted to stay in Opononi for the night, and asked at the local i-site for suggestions. As we were travelling by campervan, we wanted to avoid the local campsite which was packed with people in any case. The Globetrotters Lodge had a brochure which mentioned minimum camping available, and being the next village Omapere (in walking distance), decided to ask whether we could park our van there and stay the night. We were welcomed, and told we could use all the facilities. These were immaculately kept. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and the showers clean and hot! No television was a welcome change, which meant more family time (which became a roudy monopoly session). Despite not staying in the rooms, these appeared very clean and everyone we met who were staying there, seemed happy enough with no complaints. Omapere is a delightful town with amazing beaches and walks. Not to be missed.

Room Tip: Call up well in advance as Globetrotters seems very popular. We found people of all ages there - and...
