This was my first trip to the island and I'm completely blown away by it's beauty and it's friendly locals. I stayed the night at the backpackers in Villa II and it was clean & tidy with lots of room and not a bad view. It's a short distance from the beach and the owner Robyn is really lovely and is as laid back and friendly as they come. I can't recommend the backpackers and the island enough. Thanks again!

Robyn & Malcolm were wonderful hosts and create a wonderful relaxed atmosphere at the backpackers. The room I stayed in looked out over the ocean and was very relaxing.
They were really great with giving pointer and where to go. I would recommend the backpackers to anyone who was looking for a chilled out stay on the island.

Will definitely be going back for another visit.

We visited as a family for a week and it was just perfect - we had all the backpackers rooms to ourselves which meant that the kitchen area was basically ours too. The location was under a 10min walk from Medlands beach - a beautiful walk may I say - and the surroundings were stunning. Green beauty all around! The accommodation was just right, we all had some privacy but shared room with family members which made it a lot of fun. The family who own the accommodation were also super friendly and welcoming, and took time out from their days to take us on walks and show us around. If I ever visit New Zealand again I would definitely want to go back to Great Barrier Island, and wouldn’t think twice about where to stay.

Thanks to the friendly owners Robyn and Malcolm, after our ferry was cancelled they put us up in their backpackers.

There are plenty of rooms fitting about four people and a cool dinning room to hang out in.

The relaxed and rural feel of this place is great. Lovely views out to the sea from the property too.

Out Duke of Edinburgh group enjoyed the pancakes Robyn made in the morning for us.

Thanks for the stay and recommend for a cool spot to base yourself from.

Lovely place in a lovely setting. Fantastic views. Room (backpacker) was very comfortable and the dinning area has everything you need. The hosts are really friendly and make you feel very welcome. Just watch out for the chucks ;))
