Positive Reviews

Staff provide great service

Guests commend the hostel for the customer service it provides. Cooperative and accommodating when dealing with all manner of enquiries, the staff members are also said to be really hospitable – which reportedly helps to create an overall friendly atmosphere at the property.

Useful location to explore Mount Maunganui

The location is spotlighted as one of the hostel's main benefits. Within ten minutes on foot from the popular beach and Bay Oval cricket ground, the property is also in close proximity to the other main attractions that Mount Maunganui has to offer.

Clean rooms with comfy beds

In terms of hygiene, the hostel's rooms score favourable marks from guests. In addition to being kept tidy and clean, the rooms are described as generally featuring comfortable beds.

Negative Reviews

Noise an issue

When it comes to having a peaceful night's sleep, travellers note this can be a serious issue when residing at the hostel. Along with external noise being potentially troublesome, the property is said to attract boisterous visitors due to its backpacker nature.

Small and basic accommodations

The general standard of the hostel's rooms is a letdown for guests. As well as having limited space for storing things like luggage, the rooms – with no en-suite facilities and a lack of amenities – are defined as overly basic overall.

Concerns with the kitchen

Although spacious and well-equipped, the shared kitchen receives negative feedback from visitors in select areas. Due to being a busy area of the property, the kitchen's lack of continued cleanliness and maintenance is particularly spotlighted as a problem.
