The adventure inn is set in an awesome location but it needs a good lick of paint and tlc. The fixtures and furnishings especially in the communal bathrooms/ showers need an overhaul.
That said the facilities provided are pretty good (tv, sky, pool, good sized communal area) just a shame the dorms and kitchen are pretty basic.

Stayed: January 2018, travelled with friends

Kia ora Fred, thanks for taking the time to review us at Adventure Inn Marahau Backpackers.

First of all I’d like to thank you for recognising our location and the features you enjoyed.

Secondly we are fully aware our current bathrooms and showers are not brand new, as explained to everybody on arrival that the home you stayed in is my own, I welcome in everybody and explain that you are staying in my home until our new consent is granted and we can use our new facilities such as our new 6 & 8bed dorm rooms that have air conditioning, personal usb charging ports, as well as individual reading lights and curtains to offer privacy and comfort, our brand new showers and toilets and brand new kitchen facilities will hopefully make the location five stars for future travellers.
We are sorry we are in a transitional stage, but the current location has had nothing but fantastic reviews as backpackers enjoy the chance to stay in an actual home rather than a hostel that doesnt offer the feeling of being at a home away from home.

I hope the rest of your travels are safe and enjoyable.

Kind regards

In December 2017 my friend and I stumbled across the Adventure Inn while visiting Marahau. We were so impressed by the service and set-up that we decided to stay.
The Adventure Inn has lots of quirky features, like a bus serving at a kitchen, an onsite cinema and pool room, not to mention the Fire Truck!
There has recently been an awesome new outdoor area built with BBQ's and plenty of room on the lawn.
A hop skip and jump to boats, the beach, cafe's and the Able Tasman National Park. This place is a perfect holiday/travel destination.

Stayed: December 2017

Greg was a fantastic hoast! The hostel setup is awesome and has a really cool vibe with outdoor entertaining areas. Greg helped show us the best places to visit in the town and was particularly helpful suggesting walks in the national park which was super close! Could not recommend this place enough. Awesome place to stay and visit!

Don't often write reviews for hostels but it was only fair to write this. Greg is a top bloke, great host and all round great dude. He has great inside knowledge on the area and has put together THE best hostel i've come accross.

The facilities are amazing, there is a movie theatre with a huge selection to choose from, pool tables, a food truck that is about to be up and running, and a huge and inviting backyard to have some beers and food.

Not only is the hostel amazing but the location is too! a minute or two walk from a gorgeous beach, couple minutes from the best burger you'll have in your life and right next to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park!

Greg will help with all your bookings and has the best advice for putting trips together. trust him!

Cheers Greg for the great time, wish we could have stayed longer,

From Matt & Astrid.
