Latest Review

" This hostel was so small that it could have easily been someone's house, and it was so comfortable that it could quite easily become like your home. The place could hardly have been any better, the facilities were good, the hostel was clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Security was my only slight mark down, as the dorm room was unlocked most the day and the hostel was not locked either, Hanmer however is so safe it does not require much security, so this wasn't much of an issue "
