We were welcomed by the owner who gave us so many great suggestions on what to do around the area. Then we got checked in to the 4 beds room dorm which was clean and had a fridge and a microwave. The overall atmosphere of the place was amazing as we met some of the nicest people in our journey....

This was our first time in a motor home and our first site. It met our expectations for cleanliness and facilities, as good as or better than other sites we subsequently visited. The owner was extremely knowledgeable about the area, very helpful and gave us good advice. The location is a few minutes from the falls and interesting walks. It...

Whangarei YHA is such a fantastic place to stay. Martin the manager is a very helpful and gives you loads of information upon arrival.

The standout quality of this hostel is due to its staff. This began when booking over the phone and continued with the very in depth information given on arrival on Whangarei and local area attractions by member of staff, Andrew. He gave personal recommendations (local diving he'd just done) and was clearly very knowledgeable. I just used the holiday park...

We enjoyed our one night as we passed through this area. The best was the help and advice given by Andrew (thanks from Edwards!) We had a clean and well equipped room but had to go to showers and toilets in separate buildings which was not a problem in dry weather. Great place near the Falls and handy for a...

It's a nice place to stay. Not too easy to reach without a car, but a bus stops 200m from the hostel. The beds are ok, could be better. There are plenty of Picknick tables to sit outside in the sun. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We spent three lovely nights here. The staff was lovely, very helpful and they gave us great tips on the top sights in the area. The rooms were clean and the location right beside the waterdall was convenient. For sweaty days, they had a swimming pool for refreshment. Cheers, Rakel & Kiara

This is by far the worst YHA in the entirety of NZ. Where do I begin; the beds and linen were covered in pubic hair, the toilets and kitchen were discussing and bug ridden, and (in my opinion most importantly) the service provided by the managing clerk was unapologetically rude and unhelpful. Seriously, if you can stay elsewhere then for...

Hello Jack F, There are over 40 YHA hostels in New Zealand. You must be having quite the adventurous holiday to be able to stay at all of them. I'm afraid that any pubic hair you found in your bed was your own, as all of our rooms are cleaned and all of the sheets are changed after each use...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family-run backpackers and holiday park in a semi-rural setting two-minutes' walk away from the beautiful Whangarei waterfalls and scenic walking tracks. Stroll to town along bush-lined riverside walks or laze the day away beside the swimming pool. Evenings are for soaking in the hot tub and sharing stories around the BBQ. Our aim is to provide clean, comfortable accommodation in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Located 5kms north east of Whangarei City centre on the Twin Coast Highway, we provide an ideal base for diving and exploring the Poor Knight Islands. Beautiful coastal beaches and Tutukaka with its marina are a short drive away. We can organise diving, snorkelling and kayaking at the Poor Knights with arranged transport from the front gate available. Local bus stops, shops and a supermarket are within a short walk. Internet Provided. CityLink Bus# 3 and 3a bus stop 300m down the road. We look forward to having you stay with us. ~Martin and Team ... more   less
