    A cosy colorful hostel”
    When driving into Whitianga, you can't miss this hostel, it's like a rainbow landed on the earth. :) The dorm rooms are spacious and my favorite thing about them was the large window areas where you could sit, read a book and look out at the ocean just across the road. The kitchen is tidy and occasionally the local cat will come to beg food from you or just to curl up next to you while you're watching a movie. The managers are lovely and there's beaches all around. This has definitely been one of my favorite hostels in NZ so I recommend it warmly! Although it was super quiet when I visited in the winter, there was some lovely walks around and the beach is beautiful any time.

    Meh. ”
    It could be a very good hostel but unfortunately the way they handle the booking isn't great. I booked only the first night on Internet like I always do and the Internet price was $20. When I wanted to extend I've been told I would have to pay $30 because the $20 price is only for new customers and they wouldn't let me book online again. Really stupid. Also there is a surcharge when you pay with card and you can use the wifi only on 1 device.....such a shame cause showers, kitchen, laundry and other facilites are great.

    Great place, super nice staff, free kayaks, slow wifi”
    Only con is that there is so many people using the same wifi that gets impossible to use. The 4 beds rooms houses at the back don't get enough signal to comnect. And some lockers in the bedrooms would be nice. Except that, everything is perfect.

    I'm not angry, just disappointed”
    its location.
    Extremely poor customer service, its not hard to put on a smile and be polite. The bathrooms and kitchen facilities were old and appeared not to be cleaned regularly. Also our four bed room only had two power sockets. Will not be staying here again.

    Location, Value for Money, Cleanliness
    We stayed for 2 days at the On the Beach Backpacker and found that this was an extremely superb accommodation, I never thought of having such a good place to stay, It was cheap and clean unlike any other place to stay. This is a bargain for travellers

    Quality hostel right in front of the beach”
    Small sized hostel at perfect spot
    I stayed in a double room with own kitchen ( needed to share only with one ohter room). Everything was very clean and the staf of the hostel is very friendly an helpfull. During my stay the weahter was not that good, but with a sunny day the hostel is ideally situated (right in front of the beach).

    不错的背包客酒店,我订的四人间后来给了一个双人间,里边很干净。酒店位置很好,出门对面就是海滩,下次来应该还会选择这里。
