This place isn't hard to miss! It is right across the road from the beach and has free water sports equipment to borrow. It is a short walk into Whitianga town and within easy driving distance of Cathedral Cove and Hot Water beach.
Good sized room and clean facilities but we found the shared set up a bit odd...we were in a 2 bedroom shared unit with each unit having a kitchette and shower room rather than communal facilities for the whole hostel. It just seemed a bit like you'd been thrown into a Big Brother house...
