I really enjoyed my stay there, even it was only one night. The host was ver nice and helpful, he told me exactly where I have to go to see the penguins, etc. The room was very nice and clean, bathroom is also clean. Good location, right in the centre. Internet you need to pay, but not that expensive and there is some free wi-fi nearby.

This is a really great place. The staff were friendly and it is in a fantastic location. I would never stay anywhere else if I went to Oamaru.

I only stayed here for two nights, but I loved it Mandy the manager was so friendly and gave us the low down on when to see the penguins! And it was located in the centre of town, so everything was easily accessible. Definitely one of my favourite hostels.
