Filthy. Friendly guests, fortunately!
The "cleaner" had just left so I reconsidered my vow to skip showering during my 3 night stay. Once I got in there I realized I still had to wear my flip flops in the stall and I felt less clean when I got out! Grotty! Owners are not caring for the buildings, especially by ignoring the effects of the humidity. My roommates cooked and cleaned up after themselves thoroughly after eating, as they should. However, it's not the guests' responsibility to combat mold and mildew!! Great location. Oh, I was double charged, as well!!

I just returned from a week stay at Backpackers in cabin 7 at plantation village and it was the trip of my lifetime! Short bike ride away from Pipeline and all the famous spots on north shore. The crew cleans the cabins every morning and from what I hear a new manager who actually cares took over and things have improved significantly. Great atmosphere as I met many very cool people from all over the world and the crew members (Steve & Calvin in particular) were very friendly and sociable. No bedbugs and no theft problems. Theres a beach right across the street where you can lay out, check out the stars at night, snorkel, or just swim. Highly recommended for fellow surfers! Best value in town! Thanks everyone at Backpackers for a great experience, I shall return!
Something that smelt like alcohol dripped from above the loft floor
something that smelt like alcohol dripped from above the loft floor cracks. urine based? About 2amI felt wet drippings on my back, the end. The bedbug on my pillow was the version of a thank you mint to boot. This is written real time so I'll sleep in the car until they open. Shame to be so close to the church at Waimea Bay. Otherwise a neat architectural hostel.
The plantation has a distinct sort of country charm. This country feel came from the three cute little pigs roaming freely about the property. The numerous roosters did their part to ensure that you were awake early so you could smell the morning fresh dairy air. Dairy air, dairy air dirty stinky dairy air, but I wasn't on a farm just a stinky plantation village room. These roosters that were causing such a ruKus had plenty of reason to be at the plantation because there were lots of bugs for them to eat. I probably should have lured a couple of these birds into my room so they could feed on the assortment of insects available in that location. However the foul smell from my pillow would probably even scare them away.
Great location, Great Value, Genuine Staff. We will stay here again.
We stayed in the Beach House last Sept Oct. It was clean and presentable. The location is excellent, The Staff really friendly and helpful. That really made it for us as the kids just borrowed the boogie boards or snorkel gear when they wanted. Craig at the desk made them welcome and our holiday safe and fun for us by providing good advice. If you like to laugh meet other people and have a good time locally then this is the place to stay. Try the Shark Cove Grill too. Thank you Sharlyn and Backpacker Staff for a fabulous holiday.
Place is filthy and rundown
I booked 4 nights here and ended up leaving after the first night bedbug bitten and thinking that the people who ran this place couldn't give a rip about anyone staying here. All they care about is the money. If you are someone who doesn't care about anything clean, stay here. Otherwise stay away!
Sad, sad place!
Unfortunately the woman owner and her bicycle-sidekick suck big time. She has let the place deteriorate to a shambles even to the extent the whole place should be quarantined as a health hazard. It shows a deep disrespect to the heritage of the structures and most probably violates all sorts of codes for maintaining safe structures for inhabitants. Very sad indeed! Don't stay there!!
