This is a amazing place to stay. For campervans is enough space and there are a lot of nice cabins. The souroundings and the view is more than worth a stay. The staff is just friendly and really helpful and the kitchen is good equipd and the showers are more than clean. You get more for the price then you'll expect.

Solscape hostel is a great place, not only because of the place, but more about the people that wwooffing in it. Location is on a hill with nature all around it, just a few minutes from the amazing surf of Manu Bay, rooms are unique and made in old train carts. Theres a good kitchen, a fireplace which is good for the cold nights (and days) and its all like a big family. Making dinners together and sit around the fire for drinks.
Staff is very nice and helpfull.
Only down side is that room are very cold and got no heaters.

I am surprised to read the negative reviews of this accommodation as we had an excellent overnight stay. We stayed in a powered van site. The staff on reception were friendly and made us feel immediately welcome. Beautiful scenery and a short scenic walk from the beach. We had booked a surfing lesson with Andy as part of the stay which has been the highlight of our trip so far - a great morning trying to surf in beautiful waves - his patience with us definitely deserves a mention! Would definitely stay again. Thanks Solscape.

Stunningly beautiful position overlooking the surf beach. Superbly relaxing yoga session. Peaceful and friendly. Great to stay at a place that is committed to encouraging sustainable living. I would stay again.

Highly recommend, is difficult to get to without your own transport but sooo worth it.

Had the best three days of surfing, yoga and stuffing myself with everything in the delicious cafè

Views are unreal, and you're literally a 10 minute walk from the beach.

Appreciated the lift from reception to the bus stop on our way back from the super friendly staff.

Stayed in the Summer Studio which was clean, spacious, and had kitchen facilities. Location/view from solscape is amazing. Short ride to town and right there by the beach. A great place to stay for an amazing surf vacation.

My brother in law and his partner were visiting and we were showing them around Raglan when we happened to notice a sign for wood fired pizzas.
What a great decision to go up the long curvy driveway it was. They serve up vegan pizzas only, which might turn a few people off, but it shouldn't because they were excellent!
I had a bbq style one with jackfruit which was good but the best would have to have been the banana & tofu with satay sauce - delicious!
So if you see or hear about pizza night at Solscape, dont miss out!
