Liked: This place is in the most amazing location. Up on a hill a little drive out of Raglan, the hostel has amazing views of the surf beaches and is nestled in the bush. The cabins we stayed in were warm and comfortable. The kitchen and lounge were not huge, but made for a homely atmosphere and everyone had a chat while they were cooking/ hanging out. There is also an outdoor woodfire oven that is easily used, plus an outdoor kitchen for campers. The main reception area also has a cute little café that does yummy and cheap breakfasts. There are not many bathrooms/ showers, but they were clean. Atmosphere was just amazing, all the staff and guests were relaxed and friendly. It's also was a short walk to one of the main beaches. Will definitely be coming back for longer next time, and to take some surfing lessons!

Disliked: Could have another shower/ toilet block.

Liked: The concept is really good: rooms are actually train cars dispersed in the yard. This also makes it really quiet at night since you don't hear what goes on outside of your room . Very cosy and homey, the bed was comfortable, enough toilets and clean, the kitchen is big enough

Disliked: There is no wifi voucher so you need to pay even if you just want to check your emails. I wouldn't recommend to someone who doesn't have a car as its outside Raglan and there isn't much within walking distance.

Liked: The property is very lovely and the views are excellent. We loved staying in the train car, and although it was incredibly small, it was extremely quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds were very pleasant and it was nice not having too much light or noise.

Disliked: The kitchen area was pretty filthy. We've stayed in many hostels and the deal is the same with everyone doing their own dishes and then hostel employees cleaning up throughout the day. This didn't seem to be the case as the countertops were covered in food, dishes were everywhere and there were no clean towels to be found. Also, one "employee" from the states had some attitude.

Liked: This place had loads of character - we enjoyed staying in the carriage! A lovely atmosphere with plenty of info about local organic eats etc. Cosy fireplace in the commonroom!

Disliked: We booked into a '3 person dorm' but it was actually more like a 7 person room with a thin wall /door between. So not a lot of privacy - we could hear every word.
