Good place, but not to get married

What a shame---I would have had nothing but good things to say about this hostel, especially as we used their wedding service and were overall pleases, except for the fact that the owner has taken some of our wedding photos from the photographer and is using them on her website without our permission. Legally, she can use the ones without us in them, from what I have found out, so she has only kept the ones up with images, but I think it's so insensitive to not respect our wishes about something so personal. She said she would have them removed but has not done so, and told me she has the right to use them as the photographer gave her permission and they are copyright of the photographer. Not so nice... She's just starting up her business, so I would have thought a good recommendation would have been worth more than a couple of photos.

I thought rarotonga and rarotonga backpackers was so good i came back for a second visit. The hosts Paul and Rebecca were absolutely wicked and showed us a great time. I would never stay anywhere else. The pub crawl and sailing trip paul and rebecca put on the board are brilliant definately dont miss those.
