Beautiful hostel, across from the busstop and close to the sea. Staff is amazing, free fast wifi and I loved the mural. Bed's are good as well.


A brilliant hostel!! My favourite place so far in New Zealand- comfortable beds in well kept rooms. Great location on the beach front with friendly staff! Free WIFI, tea and coffee. I would definitely recommend this place! Thanks to Craig, Maria and Gabriel for making my stay so memorable!


Great, clean hostel right on the main road. Helpful staff and nice facilities. Would definitely return!


Only stayed here for one night but I had a great stay and thought this was a cute little hostel! Keep up the good work! :)


Free unlimited wifi! Probably the one and only in whole New Zealand. ;) Terrace with magnificent view. Super friendly owner. Spotlessly clean. One of the best places I've ever stayed at. :)


had a 3 bed dorm to myself, but if there were 2 other ppl in there with their bags it would be very tight and is probably bit small if it were busy. free wifi, nice kitchen and chill out area and a nice balcony.


Stayed in the double room. Despite the wall that is your lookout for the window, this hostel is a decent price and unlike some other hostels they provide you with plenty of blankets and a decent heater for when it's cold. Central location too- our bus stopped right outside the place!


No lockers in the room, except of that perfect!


Great Hostel! Very central and very clean. Super friendly staff and very helpfull. Good big kitchen and good bathrooms. Good bedrooms. Would recommend it to anyone.


Fishtank is realy nice place. Comfy beds, cery clean and great unlimited free wifi. Its very well located the intercity bus stops in front of the hostel. I highly recommend staying here.


Had a great stay at the hostel. Dolphin swimming here is a must!
