Great accomodation, clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen, nice backyard and very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, there was no free pizza as announced, but at least a movie night with free popcorn. In general a good choice to stay at.

Thanks for your review, yes we are a small hostel but a lot of guests like this. Thanks for staying and all the best with your travels.


Small hostel. Only one female and one mixed bathroom for the whole hostel. So no privacy if you are a guy. Lots of free stuff from people leaving NZ.

Thanks for your review, we do also have the bathroom downstairs that everyone is welcome to use if staying on the second floor.


This is a small, well run hostel with a very social atmosphere and great staff. The place isn't fancy and rooms are a bit small, but the layout of the dining area and backyard is very good for meeting other travelers. Staff here are very helpful with just about everything and were really fun to hang out with as well. The place is kept quite clean and I'd recommend staying here!
