Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Exactly what I expected and more
It’s a hostel in the centre of Mount Maunganui, so you’re going to get noise from the bars, clubs on its doorstep. But that’s totally expected, so the loud music from the club downstairs on the Friday night I stayed was no issue whatsoever. The hostel itself is great, staff are super friendly and helpful, the kitchen has all you need and there’s a nice relaxed vibe. The location is amazing for the Main Street and all it has to offer in shop, bars and restaurants. The main beach is a 5 min walk so you’re spoiled for choice.

Tidy bedrooms and clean toilets. Kitchen and lounge reasonable in size relative to the maximum capacity of the backpackers. Approachable, accommodating and friendly staff. I was able to choose my own bunk bed. Good wee community of backpackers, all we’re friendly and welcoming. Will definitely stay again.
