    Nice place to stay

    Refreshing hostel. Finally a hostel that isn't trying to get as much money from it's guests as possible. Free wifi, free breakfast that includes toast, butter, jam, cereal and milk. Pool table in the back. Friendly staff, clean common rooms. Close to the supermarkets and a couple blocks from the town center. Only negative was there wasn't much of a social atmosphere, but i was there during low season.

    Clean, Comfortable, and Secure Hostel

    My stay at Turtlecove Accommodation was very comfortable, and I would highly recommend it to travelers passing through Whitianga. It is located within walking distance of the town centre, two grocery stores, and a number of lovely beaches. The staff members were extremely helpful and the facilities were kept very clean. The rooms were tidy and well ventilated and the common areas were spacious.

    Great place!

    I was only for a one night stay but would be worth staying a couple of night. Great to meet new people! Nice clean room.
