Me and my friends spent a night at Ahipara before we continue our journey to Cape Reinga. We reached there at night so we missed the sunset, but the hostel itself provide us a clean and comfort space to rest after a long journey from Auckland through the west coast. I stayed in a twin room upstairs, the room itself is small but sleeping with the sound of waves was just awesome. Kitchen was well equipped, bathroom was clean. The hostel location is just lovely, just in front of a beach and we spent the next morning walking on the long beach before we leave.
