Lovely little hostel which has everything you need. We camped on the hill in the garden which had stunning views over the bay. Hostel was clean, tidy, reasonably priced, games and had a communal stereo + CDs. The town itself had a convenience store but not much else to offer- it felt like we had gone back in time! Perfect to relax, getaway if you want to spend some time on the rugged and beautiful East Cape. Would highly recommend!
I stayed here for one night with my daughter whilst travelling around the East Coast of the North Island back in March 2016. We enjoyed the stay - the place had good facilities, is well maintained and clean. Leanne was very helpful and in fact changed our cabin for the family room as it was more convenient for us. We enjoyed the interaction with other travellers who were also staying. Tokomaru Bay is off the normal tourist trail and is fairly quite but the area is well worth visiting and Stranded in Paradise is a great place for travellers to stay.
SUPERB! Clean facilities, incredibly unique, STUNNING views, friendly and accommodating hosts! Free wifi, all beds made up and a sustainable hostel. The best hostel in the North Island yet! Thank you, Leanne and Angus!
Had a fabulous time at this lovely backpackers which is truly in paradise. Beautiful view of the beach, lovely rooms, great showers, very welcoming operators. Love the composting toilets!! Lots of interesting books, great kitchen. A truly lovely place to stay ❤️
Fantastic place to unwind and relax. Amazing surroundings and facilities. A very friendly place to get away from it all. Views are breathtaking facilities are superb. A nice gentle 20 minute walk to the local pub where you can get a scrumptious dinner while watching the waves crash on the beach.
