Recent guest reviews

We stayed 2 nights. As soon as we walked through reception to the stairwell there was a horrible stinking smell. The bathroom in the room was disgustingly dirty with mould, it could do with a good clean. Only 3 channels working on the TV. Top bunk on bunk beds not safe for children as mattress is same height as safety rail.Complained and we were moved to another room that was only slightly better. Staff member moaned about us checking the second room. No alcohol allowed in rooms (thats a first for me) This was like a backpackers but wasn't advertised or priced as a backpackers

Staying a night with our two young children. We were not happy about being asked to pay when we check out (after pre-paying). Unable to speak to staff (reception not open during check in or check out times). Mould in window ledges and bathroom walls. After following up on the phone to confirm our pre payment, I was left feeling brushed off.

The beds in the dorms here are very good and very comfortable with clean bathrooms and showers. The Kitchen was small but well stocked with a TV in the room. The a bar attached which offers great pizza and bar meals for a very reasonable price and was really busy with a great atmosphere with live sport on at the time, Can't really fault the place.

Staff were really lovely and friendly here. We stayed in the large hut dorms as there was a big group of us and we wanted to stick together, it was also cheapest option. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and it was clean. The kitchen facilities are good but very small, there are also options to buy food as well if you didn’t want to cook. Situated right next to the lovely beach and a short journey to the national park. I didn’t like the toilet facilities so much as it was in their own tin huts which attracted bugs and got a bit dirty due to the door being left open and people returning back from the beach

Kaiteri lodge has a fabulous location, right on the beach with good access to lots of hikes and the national park nearby. On the contrary our stay was not so pleasant. After checking in to a very small 8 bed dorm we discovered three of the eight beds had bird poo on the pillows and windowsill. We took the dirty sheets to reception, and the staff were very apologetic and replaced the sheets saying that sparrows often come into the rooms (maybe the windows should have been closed). The kitchen was also quite small and the bathrooms were not so clean. The disabled bathroom was very dirty and could be smelt from the corridor.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of the Kiwi Experience. The beds in the dorms here are very good and very comfortable and the showers were good too. The Kitchen was small but well stocked with a TV in the room - thank goodness... They have a bar attached which offers great pizza and bar meals for a very reasonable price - however, its only open on nights that the bus stops there in winter.. we went out to find somewhere else to eat and there is nothing else open! Make sure you have your own supplies as there is not really a supermarket in 'town'.

Kiwi Experience stay Dorm rooms fine and bathrooms are clean. As a lot of people have mentioned the main kitchen is small so you have to bide your time. There might be normally but x 2 staff members would have been good to check in the Kiwi bus as check in was quite slow. Great location for the beach

The kitchen is really small for all the bedrooms ! For the price per night (32$) for a backpackers like that you can at least have a free wifi.... no TV room or lounge room.... really friendly and helpful staff 👍🏽

This hostel has everything that you need, it has all the facilities with ensuite dorms and a fully equipped kitchen. The showers are a bit weird with the water spraying everywhere rather than in a forward spray onto your body. Decent enough place. Wifi is not free.

Great getaway. Stayed here with kiwi experience for 3 nights to get the best of the national park. Staff very accommodating - sorted out all our transport to and from the national park when out of season. Clean comfy beds and kitchen (staff kindly cleaned daily and well-equipped, though could do with a few extra pans). Only suggestion would be for a communal lounge area. Wifi costs a small amount but very fast. Had a really great stay and would love to return, thank you!
