Great hostel, ariving from LA without accomodation we decided to look for a hostel/hotel after ariving. Rain pooring from the sky upon arrival limited our options to hostels having pickup. We listened to their offer en gambled on Rarotonga backpacker booking 1 night, staying 5. The hostel has 2locations both with pool. 1 on the beach 1 in the hill 10min walking apart. While the beach one is slightly more expensive, busier and smaller it is the popular 1. For no other reason then being perfect for lazy people being afraid of a 5 min walk to the beach (for which other beaches are better anyways. The hostel in the hill is the better one, big living amazing view! Rooms are nice but small 44nzd for a double. Staff cleans everyday and is very friendly. Free bananas are a nice courtesy. Make sure to visit the island migration 12 nzd with taxi. Nothing like the tourist trap I expected it to be.
