Property Information:

We are an eco hostel working to minimize our effect on the environment.
Our new well appointed energy sustaining building has double-glazing, solar water heating, large decks, fully equipped commercial sized kitchens and TV lounges.

We offer dorms, twin / double, share rooms, cabins and caravans. Some rooms have ensuite and some shared bathrooms.

Large laundries with free clothes washing machines, outside clothes drying lines, and coin operated dryers if needed.

We are not a party hostel, but you can bring your own alcohol and enjoy a drink and BBQ with friends new and old.

Many of our guests work while here and need sleep for early starts.

We have BBQs, picnic tables, hammocks and space to kick a ball, read a book or play guitar in the shade of a tree.

Bike rentals including helmets and locks available to guests.
Hastings is a flat city and great for biking.

All our buildings are smoke free inside.

    Coleen was a lovely, hospitable host. My room and common areas were warm and homely. Kitchen had fireplace and all the cooking amenities. Shower was hot and had good water pressure. Not right in the city centre so would be better for those with own transport. I felt very comfortable here and would stay again

We are a family run hostel and there will always be a welcome for you if arriving very early or late, but it is great if you can ring, text or e mail and let us know.\r\n\r\nWe do not sell alcohol. You are welcome to bring some for your use but please use it responsibly or you will not be allowed any more. \r\n\r\nWe will help you to find work if you want, but do not guarantee work will be available at the time of your visit.\r\n
