  • Well to start off driving into the area it the sea port city... so good luck on finding a cheap/clean place to eat. The beach was nice, and getting to the top of the Mountain was the highlights of my trip. "So about 3 hrs" In this area the lockers in the room are a joke "cabinets with holes in them" no locks,and last but not lest the staff was more helpful to the customers Renting surfboards then helping the guests.

  • In this Hostel I had the best night I spend in New Zealand! The staff was very nice, even when we arrived at 11 pm to check in. A short walk to the city center and also to the nice beach. The other guys who stayed there were our age and cool to hang out with. Next time I go to NP, I'll stay at Ariki Backpackers again :)
