Nice hostel with friendly staff. Close to all shops and activities. Great location for the inter city bus and I site.


Really nice hostel located right in the middle of town. They also have a nice kitchen and lounge area. The outdoor deck is a nice place to chill after a day of activities with beautiful views of snow capped mountains and the ocean. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Clean, good kitchen and lounge, decent showers. Wifi is a bit intermittent and room 5 has a skylight with no blind so you wake up with dawn unfortunately! Excellent location. Atmosphere is alright although it was quiet when I was there so not much going on.


Very helpful staff, very clean, great internet connection and the most comfortable bed I've slept in so far in NZ. Showers were a little cramped but manageable.


Great. We booked two nights and ended up staying five!
