We really enjoyed staying at Little Earth. The rooms and the beds were excellent so we both had a great nights sleep. It is also located right next to the Abbey Caves so you can explore these for free and see thousands of glow-worms. We stayed there as we were diving at the Poor Knights so its kind of on the way.
The hostel is situated in the countryside about 10 mins drive from Whangarei centre.
We would both highly recommend this place.
