We really enjoyed staying at Four Canoes. The staff were lovely and welcoming, the rooms were clean (could do with some hanging space for towels), the shared kitchen facilities were terrific - my only negative was that some of the other guests were inconsiderate with their noise making quite late in the night as they returned from their outings and this was problematic as we were in town for a netball tournament and needed our sleep. Overall though it was great value. I will book again! Thanks

The Four Canoes Hostel and Bar is a real credit to you ,the staff are very friendly and eager to help and nothing is to hard for them. You put a lot of hotels and motels who charge much more than you do to change. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you.
