Brilliant staff, people and guests. Fantastic night here. Right next to the beach, the hostel is incredibly clean, well equipped and the beds are remarkably comfortable. But it's the people and atmosphere that really make staying here amazing. We are booking in for next new years the moment we get home. 10/5 stars. Thank you for making or our adventure...

What a wonderful place to stay ! The owners are such helpful and friendly, the kitchen and the livingroom are clean and fully equipped. You can enjoy the nice patio, better during the summer, with a free BBQ. The rooms are clean as well and really confortable. I strongly recommend this place to stay, but, little tips, don't be dumb...

We stayed when it was a stormy night and a power blackout in the whole region. We were the only guests and the host was very nice looking after us and bringing us torches. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the area outside which seemed to us so nice of thge weather would have been fine.

Our stay was not planned. Due to a loss in the family. Although we arrived late, we received fabulous service. Our room was tidy and clean. As were the other amenities. When we discovered we would need a second night, our host was more than happy to accommodate and allow us to change to a larger room. One odd thing,...

It is true that the place is nice, homely, surrounded by green hills, quiet and relaxing. And the owners are very nice and extremely helpful. On the other hand....beds...or at least mine, are old and mattress too soft with a huge hole in the middle. Wc facilities (being full bathroom) are insufficient...always had to wait.

Thank you so much, Sue!! I drove into town without a booming and was happy to learn there was a bed open. The atmosphere was so relaxing and I made some new friends.

A special thank you to our wonderful host, you were one of the friendliest people we've ever met and the way you run that hostel is just awesome! Everything is clean, sunny, decorated with love and passion. Thank you so much for the good experience after some nights in awful hostels ;)

Small and quiet backpackers, well equipped kitchen, rooms clean and comfortable. Very helpful hostess. Outdoor dining area with BBQ. Lovely views across Hokianga Harbour to huge sand dunes - a boat trip with sand boarding is a must !! Kauri forest a short drive away with the largest Kauri trees in New Zealand. Walks nearby.

Very friendly place. Child friendly with our 10 year old son. Visually amazing. Lots of walks, fresh air & sights to be seen. Lots to offer the travellers who pass through.

“We had a double room in the main building which we were happy with. They also have one double room in a separate building just outside the main building which might be more private and quiet if there're many people staying at Globetrekkers.”

“They have internet but you have to ask as its in the office - Also ask about what's to do from owners. We were surprised by how much there is in the area. Bone carving was AWESOME!”
