People come from all over the world to experience the vibrancy of the hostel and spend time with the friendly people, share in the creativity and fun and get involved in the daily life of real New Zealanders:

  • Growing our own organic food.
  • Catching fish from the sea and rivers.
  • Collecting firewood.
  • Cooking.
  • Playing music.
  • Country life.

Rongo Dinner, Bed & Breakfast grew out of a desire to build a centre for artistic excellence and a place for artistic and creative people to meet and share their knowledge, abilities and talents for mutual benefit – The Living In Peace Project.

Rongo, which means “Peace” in Māori, was formally the Karamea maternity hospital. 

The building was purchased in June 2004 and converted into a backpackers hostel and gallery space. 

The backpackers and associated motel business (Karamea Farm Baches) provide accommodation for visitors to Karamea, trampers, mountain bikes, travellers and holiday-makers from all over the world.

Rongo is now a world-class Dinner, Bed & Breakfast that has hosted visitors from over sixty countries.
