A quirky hostel with many random things going on in the communal area like a baby writhing about on the sofas, over-fed cat wandering about taking naps and workmen traipsing in and out from building work on the hostel walls...possibly the most active spot in Dunedin!

My stay was great, I booked quite late but was still able to get a cheap bed for the night, with breakky included! The staff were very helpful and friendly - they know where the free car parks are as well as great places to eat and drink. Room was clean and bed was comfortable, would most definitely recommend!

I felt the Xbox took away from the atmosphere as individuals would play for hours on end while others had to wait to watch a movie or tv which is more social. There was a cat running all over the house which I hate to see in bedrooms and kitchens but fine for other communal areas. Staff were helpful and all in all I had a nice stay.

Very good place to stay in Dunedin. Directly in the Center. You have to cross the common room to get to the only bathroom avaible.

This hostel has a very homely feel to it which was nice. It's very clean and the showers are amazing. The downsides are that the showers and toilets are at the other side of the hostel

I had a great time here. The guy running the place is very friendly. I got to know many of the other guests. Two potential issues you should be aware of: The parking is coin operated parking on the side of the street. No drinking alcohol on the premises.

A very handy location being right in the centre of Dunedin. Our room overlooking George street was a bit noisy at night with car revellers (

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.
