What a place!! Whangamata is such an awesome spot in NZ, a beautiful bay to surf in. I stayed for 3 nights at the hostel with daily morning surf lessons included. The hostel decor has been done to a high standard and it felt like I was staying in an Air BnB! Absolutely loved staying there. Surf lessons with Kat were great, I learned so much about safety and progressing my surfing skills. Thank you so so much for such a great experience. I can't wait to come back again soon!

I stayed in the winter quiet time. It was great place to stay overnight. I checked all the beaches east coast to come back to surf in summer time. I definitely come back. Thank you Tim.

Surf N Stay was my favorite hostel experience in New Zealand. It’s unique in that it feels more like a home than a hostel. The beach is beautiful and only a short walk away. Whangamata has a good grocery store and everything one would need while staying in town. The guests I stayed with were a really cool group. We surfed together, cooked together, swam in the ocean under full moon, and got on as really good friends only within spending a few days together. The staff were really kind and welcoming. I signed up for the “learn to surf” deal and was really happy with my experience. The surf instructor Chris is fantastic. He had me and our group up on the boards catching waves in no time. His positive attitude and surfing talent are an awesome blessing for the community of Whangamata. The other staff members I met while there included Doug, Amanda, Micaele, and Kat. They were all really welcoming and made sure myself and the other guests were comfortable and enjoyed our time. The hostel facilities were all very clean. If you want to learn how to surf/progress your surf skills and have a really fun and relaxing time on the Coromandel then this is your place. Highly recommend!

We stayed in that backpacker’s - as hostels are called in NZ- for 5 nights. We’re not surfers or that sort, but our staying there was really nice. The ocean was just behind the corner, not far from so called downtown as well. As the hostel itself is located in a regular house, it looks like you are staying in a family. All tenants are usually interact, so it’s normal while eating and cooking to get to know each one and chat. All people are normally polite and friendly, including staff. We really enjoyed our time there. But there are some points which don’t let me rate the hostel high. 1. Only one toilet and shower for at least 15 people. 2. The mirror was only in the only shower. 3. The kitchen wasn’t fully supplied. As a result, while everyone was cooking, there weren’t enough knives, sous epans, bowls. And one fridge was always lack of space. 4. In many hostels in Europe beds in hostels are provided with personal sockets, usb, curtains and even shelves. Here, in NZ, they aren’t, which is not nice. Anyway, we were really happy to be there!

Myself and four kids aged between 6 and 12 had a ball learning to surf with Surf N Stay NZ while we were in Whangamata. They weren't able to keep an eye on the 6 year old the whole time, but his mum was able to keep an eye on him from the shore. The other three kids who are a bit more confident in the water - aged 9 - 12 - were fine on their own. We all managed to stand up and had a great time - can't wait to do it again and be good enough to get our own boards!
