Take a look at what they say about their stay with us

“We sayed at Kiwi Corral almost 6 months for our New Zealand Working Holiday. They have good enough facilities compared with other shared accommodation. During winter, they provided a heater for every room. It’s so warm. We also got a job working in a packhouse as recommended by Kiwi Corral. Staying here helped us save on accommodation costs for our next travel. We felt comfortable, saved money 
and met lots of friends here.”

– Ray & Jocelyn (Malaysia)

“We had enjoyed great time with you during our stay at Kiwi Corral. This is the first time we stay at a backpacker’s accommodation over a couple of months. You had been very helpful in getting us jobs. Whenever we faced problems, you gave us your best to help us solve it. We would like to express our gratitudes. Thank you very much, for all that you have done for us. Take Care & Cheers”

– Jonathan & Camy (Malaysia)

“It’s time to leave; it’s always hard to say goodbye, especially Kiwi Corral is such an awesome place. I made a large group of friends here, the people from Solomon, Samoa, Vanuatu, Malaysia, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Korea, UK, USA and China. All are very nice and friendly, I enjoyed so much during chatting, cooking, baking and laughing with them. Everyday is HAPPY DAY, it had many treasure moments at staying in Kiwi Corral. I like Kiwi Corral.
