The Moana lodge is a beautiful old house that is very large, and well sorted. The host was very accommodating, and helpful, and the bed was nice and soft, and had heated sheets.Our room also had a great view of the bay, and was situated right on the upper corner of the house. The walls were kinda thin, but most of the structures in New Zealand seem to be built to a more European standard, so it's normal. The lounge was also well appointed, and very inviting.
The location is just far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to be convenient.
All in all, the nicest backpackers I have had the pleasure of staying in.
