Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great place to stay! The host is soooo nice. The room, kitchen, restrooms, everything is super clean and nice. The homemade pasta and pizza from Stefano are to die for. And the view from the farm is incredible. Very good base to visit north of north island. Thank you Lindsay

This is a delightful hostel, very tastefully presented, clean and comfortable. It is a perfect base to explore the nearby Whangaroa Harbour with some superb hikes such as the Mahinepua Peninsula or the Wairakau Stream track to the Dukes Nose within striking distance. As a bonus you can order meals prepared by the host with great Italian pedigree. Highly recommended.

Visited in April but forgot to leave a review, so coming back now to post one. We were tied up for a place to stay and were recommended this place. We showed up and were greeted with the most friendly welcoming host. She showed us through her family's old kauri cottage which was beautiful. To top it off her Husband is an Italian and treated us to some woodfired pizzas and locally famous raspberry pancakes the next morning. We'll be back when we come back to explore Whaingaroa, thanks so much for the memorable stay :)

This farm stay is simply wonderful! Lyndsey welcomes you with open arms into her gorgeous kauri farmhouse, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. From there you could spend days exploring locally, I only had 2 days but can't wait to go back for longer to do the local walks and enjoy the deck and garden. Haven't had such a happy stay for a while! Totally recommend.

We have had the pleasure to stay at the Kahoe Farm Hostel in January 2020. What a lovely place! Nice rooms, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom, good kitchen, warm welcome. The building looks really nice and the surroundings are beautiful! Next to that, the owner is a professional chef, who likes to surprise his guests with delicious meals for a reasonable price. Kahoe Farm Hostel is located close to Paihia, where you can book sailing tours. Also a good starting point to visit Cape Reinga. A great place!! We would have loved to stay much longer!

Recommendation from other Travellers. From word of mouth and their web site we never checked for another place to stay up in Northland. Booked a Private Room with shared bath and got a room with en suite bath. A few hundred meters from the SH 10 away u hear nothing but wind, birds and cows. Pure tranquility. We stayed for 4 nights to avoid hostel changes every night and there is so much to do that a week's stay is possible without getting bored. Cape Reinga is within 1.5 hrs. drive. Their Rock Pools on the property worth the hike. The hospitality of Lindsey and Stefano is outstanding. Whole different level of hostelling. Expect no party but home cooked food, nice conversation, a well equipped kitchen for the ones that prefer to cook their own food. Join in if Stefano calls for a soccer game in KAHEO Stadium.

If you are touring Northland, be sure to include one or more nights' stay at Kahoe Farms in your itinerary. Owned and operated by friendly hosts Lyndsey & Stefano, my stay here turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip. Yes, the location is some distance away from buzzing town centres, but there are actually a lot of things to do here, from checking out the farm, hiking the Lane Cove track (only if you're fit enough), to driving along the very scenic Matauri Bay, just to give a few examples. You can also make this a base for visiting Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach. Although listed as a backpackers, the accommodation is actually a lovely house with only a few rooms (one of them is the dorm), so the feeling is more like a B&B (indeed, the breakfast is great - try the pancakes!). The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is large and well-equipped enough to cook a feast. In the warmer months, I imagine they get busy so you would need to book ahead. When the pasta/pizza dinner is on offer, take it - it's arguably the best Italian food you'll likely to get in many miles' radius. He's also a soccer fan and coaches the local team, so if you're into soccer this is a bonus point and you might even see a match if there's one on.

Beautiful hostel that is more like a 4* hotel! Stefano cooks the best Italian food that you can eat in the beautiful garden with views on the green rolling hills. The hosts offer a lot of interesting information about the area! Quite far away from villages, but you do get the beautiful country side.

This was an incredible stay! Between the divine views and animals and the wonderful hospitality this was truly one of the highlights of the Northland for me. Lyndsey and Stefano were so kind and welcoming and they have a very clean beautiful place. I loved the adorable pigs and sheep. My only regret was only staying one night and not longer. Many blessings to you guys!! Xx

I loved my stay at this hostel. Lynley is really welcoming and her husband Stefanie makes fabulous Italian pizza, which start at $23. It's a beautiful small hostel, with 3 private rooms and 1 dorm. The hostel is really clean and comfortable, with original features. Lots to see and do in the area, but you do need a car. If you're lucky to get a clear night, you will see some an amazing night sky.
