I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and the name definitely holds true – you really feel like stranded in paradise. The location could not be better with unobstructed views of the ocean. The rooms and all the common areas are nicely decorated and spotless clean. The owners are super friendly and helped me a great deal in fixing some technical issues with my bike. Even though it was raining most of the time when I was there, my stay in paradise was really superb and I would certainly stay again.
My friend and i stayed here in Febuary for just one night and both agreed we would have liked to stay longer and hope to return one day! Leanne and Angus were very nice and made sure we were happy in our cool loft room, it was awesome we watched the sun come up from our beds was so beautiful!
Another great east coast backpackers that is a cut above the rest. Do yourself a favour and don't miss out on exploring this area. Rugged, quiet, beautiful and a great place to chill out. Owners super friendly and helpful.
Stayed there for 2 nights and it was the best hostel that I`ve seen during my 3 month of travelling through New Zealand. Friendly, cheerfull and very helpful owners, great facilities, and a stunning location. I had the best sunset of my life. I recommend this place without any doubt. I will come back for sure!
One of the nicest hostel stays I've ever had. Great facilities, terrific location and friendly owners. I'm sorry I didn't stay for longer. Lying in bed I had an amazing view over the bay. I set my alarm to wake up for the sunrise and was treated to a great show. This would be an ideal base for exploring up and down the east coast.
