Why you think Pacific Coast Lodge is awesome?

PCL has become my second home. The team received me very warmly and helped me quickly to get a good job.

The awesome location close to the beach, bars, restaurants, supermarket and the mount Maunganui. The hostel also offers an incredible amount of activities, so you definitely will not get bored. I enjoy every day here and am so happy to be here. Great vibes, great people, awesome location.

Favourite local activity?

My absolute favorite activity is to climb Mount Maunganui.
If the weather is great, the view and the walk up there is simply breathtaking. Best for sunrise or sunset. Every picture from up there is postcard ready. A feeling of freedom. Not to forget the great long wide sandy beach and the sea.

Top tip for making your stay awesome?

To make the stay at Mount Maunganui perfect come to Pacific Coast Lodge !!! You will have the best and most memorable time of your life.
