This place is DA bomb. I met some of the coolest people here. They have a BBQ, Hot tub, Sauna, multiple surf and water-related activities gear, they are 1 block from downtown, Kieran, Estelle, Alex, Frankie, and the rest of the gang were super cool. The hostel is located along the lake and is a 10 minute drive from the beach. Everyone is incredibly laid back, and of the 10 or so different places I stayed in New Zealand, Raglan felt most laid-back, like my friends back at home, and was an excellent value for my money. Additionally, it was clean, and they even have a cat and dog and beer fridges on site :D Thank you guys! I had such an awesome timeeeeeee!
