A whale of time”
I stayed in a 8 bed dorm, it was nice and private, the kitchen was hygienic and the bathroom was really clean. Staff are kind with cuuuuuute dogs !

The hostel is close to the town and beach, so it's perfect to stay all day here. I went surfing in the morning, then went to diamond island when the tide was low in the afternoon. After dinner, I had penguin tour and saw penguins came back from the ocean. What a wonderful day!

It's a high quality hostel with awesome location and awesome service, strongly recommend travelers should stay here for a couple of days, the well-known wineglass bay is just 30 mins from here also, and your can meet friends!


During one of my tours we got stranded at Bicheno and this was the perfect place for it. The beds were really comfy and the place was clean and very cosy. It has everything you need and provides a high quality for visitors

“Perfect Hostel - clean & great location”

Stayed in the double room with shared bathroom. Spotlessly clean bedroom and bathroom with clean towels provided. Double bed was comfy and had flat screen TV. Kitchen area was perfect with lists of utensils. Great value and great location for traveling up the east coast. Bicheno has a choice of about 5 places to eat all similar price but also a good IGA grocery store.

Would highly recommend

We stay here 2 times. First time in double room with deck & sea view. same room not available when we return few day after so we got room at the Shack in next street. Both place are clean with comfortable bed - Shack is more modern than house with view. Wi-Fi free and good kitchen for cooking. Lounge have good sofa. Staff is friendly & help with all my question. We could check out late because my girlfriend not feeling well (thank you Anabel).
