Everything You Need at your Fingertips Sep 19, 2013
This is place has everything you could need. Although it is not a hostel and is more a holiday-makers, camp site with cabins style accommodation.
The owners are delightful and very helpful. Graham was very welcoming and gave me all the advice we could need about the Poor Knights Islands tours. Upon arrival they give you a little guided tour of the property and explain everything there is to avail of. The reception is open from about 8 (i think) to 8pm.
We were only supposed to stay two nights but ended up staying four as we really liked the place and Whangerai is a good base to explore Northland. It cost us $30 per night each for our own private cabin with a microwave, cutlery and dishes, a kettle and a fridge. All the other facilities were outside the room. There is a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, washing facilities, hairdryers, a hot tub, a swimming pool, a common room with a book exchange facility, a bbq area and a tv.
The rooms were really clean and so was the kitchen and batrooms.
It is located about 5km outside of Whangerai town centre. There is a big shopping centre down the road so you hardly need to go into the town centre though. It is right beside the Whangerai waterfall.
The only complaint i would have is that the radiator in our cabin didn't work at all and it was quite cold. The outdoor toilets are quite cold too at night but this can't be avoided, just wear a fleece when going out there!
