Nice hostel but we were there in September and that's a bit of season so it was a little sleepy. The complimentary breakfast was alright but the food ends pretty quickly. And the cat was nice.

The hostel is clean and the location is perfect. There was only one thing that really supriesed me. The hostel has got a cat...! The cat is able to go where ever it wants to. Even the kitchen. But it's still clean everywhere and dosen't smell at all. Still a good hostel. I would go there again.

I really enjoyed this hostel, the only bad thing is the no alcohol policy :/ I love having wine with my meal ot wine with some cheese and is really bad that we cant drink in the hostel. Also I didnt like the location of bathroom one need to walk infront where all the people is watching tv or playing videogames everytime one need to go to toilet or to take shower :(


There is not free parking at the hostel, there is free parking streets away from it that is nothing to do with the hostel. After 6 and before 8am there is free street parking outside but otherwise you are feeding a meter.


The Hostel is located in the centre of Dunedin. It is not to big and has a nice atmosphere as it isn´t to busy. I would definetly recommend to stay there. All things you need are provided.

Hostel is nice if you want a quite night, but if you wanna go out be aware of this: There is a NO ALCOHOL in the hostel... The rest was just fine!


it was overall an average hostel. The bathroom was very awkwardly located and you had to cross the whole common room and pass in front of the busy tv area to get to it often interrupting peoples movie watching. also the kitchen was a complete disaster every time we went to cook. there was no counter space and it was very very dirty. we didnt want to cook in it
