I really loved this accommodation. I have been getting around using the stray bus..but it was easy to get to the accommodation from where I got dropped off. I used the bus service and the Isite on Northtec were really helpful telling me which one I needed to get. Martin and Josh (the staff) were so friendly and really helpful...

Clean, big rooms. The shared kitchen is great for socializing. Feels like a small camping. If you depend on public transport, the location is alright, but there are no busses on sunday. There is enough to see and hike in the area, but not a lot in walking distance.

I planned to stay 2 nights to go diving at the poor knights islands, and ended up staying four nights because of all the great things to do here and the friendly atmosphere. The owner is incredibly friendly, will help you with anything you need, and will explain all the amazing things to see in the area. As a solo...

We visited the hostel in November 2016 for one night and decided to come back to see more of this great town and the area. Martin is a great host, he did explain all the must sees around Whangarei and even gave us weather and tide information. As we came with our own car, the distance to the town didn't...

This was our first time in a motor home and our first site. It met our expectations for cleanliness and facilities, as good as or better than other sites we subsequently visited. The owner was extremely knowledgeable about the area, very helpful and gave us good advice. The location is a few minutes from the falls and interesting walks. It...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family-run backpackers and holiday park in a semi-rural setting two-minutes' walk away from the beautiful Whangarei waterfalls and scenic walking tracks. Stroll to town along bush-lined riverside walks or laze the day away beside the swimming pool. Evenings are for soaking in the hot tub and sharing stories around the BBQ. Our aim is to provide clean, comfortable accommodation in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Located 5kms north east of Whangarei City centre on the Twin Coast Highway, we provide an ideal base for diving and exploring the Poor Knight Islands. Beautiful coastal beaches and Tutukaka with its marina are a short drive away. We can organise diving, snorkelling and kayaking at the Poor Knights with arranged transport from the front gate available. Local bus stops, shops and a supermarket are within a short walk. Internet Provided. CityLink Bus# 3 and 3a bus stop 300m down the road. We look forward to having you stay with us. ~Martin and Team ... more   less
