Stayed 3 nights in December 2011, lovely place, breakfast included which was a bonus, clean rooms and suitable washing facilities.
Highly recommended and is just a few minutes from town. Very warm and friendly hostess who even posted my driving licence back to UK for me which I left in the room!

Really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed for 3 nights in the twin room. Bed was hotel quality. Rooms were immaculate. Bathrooms were clean. Fantastic kitchen. Well kept, and well stocked with pots and pans. Owner was really friendly and helpful. Outdoor patio area and communal lounge areas were well kept. Good collection of movies and games - handy for when it bucketed down with rain! Good location. A no noise policy after 11 meant that you got a good nights sleep. Would recommend staying here. A really great place. If we are ever back in Whitianga we'll be staying here again.

From the minute we arrived at turtle cove we were made to feel so welcome. We stayed here for 2 weeks whilst looking for a more permanent place to stay in Whitianga. Jean and Ron are great host and went out of their way to help us out.
The rooms were clean and tidy as were the communal areas.
We stayed over Christmas and even had a visit from 'Santa' :)
Overall excellent value for money.

We stayed here for just 2 nights due to change in the route which Kiwiexperience offered. The bus no longer travelled here, but since we had prebooked the hostel owners came and picked us up from the ferry. The hostel owners were incredible and went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome. There was free breakfast every morning. The rooms were clean and tidy as were the bathrooms. The only possible negative was the internet being relatively slow, but people dont tend to go backpacking to spend all day on the internet so cannot complain. Overall a really nice family run hostel.

while we did not get the opportunity to stay here due to last minute changes with the bus company we are travelling with, the customer service we received from the hostel was excellent. They were very understanding and helpful when we had no choice but to cancel the booking. If we get the opportunity to visit whitianga i will definately be paying a visit.

This hostel has been recently renovated but rooms are small and no AC/heating exists, freezing! They had a heater in the hallway and opened the outside door at 7am, making the morning trip to the bathroom quite difficult. Drinks and dinner are cheap though.

We got taken here on the kiwi experience but it was a very cute hostel, nice to have a change from the massive hostels. there is only one bathroom and one toilet each for girls and boys however, this wasnt that much of a problem. its also a slightly extra charge for dinner which is cooked by the owner which is absolutley amazing-highly recommend you do that! there is also a small bar onsight and a pool table great for meeting people and chilling out.
