This hostel is very nice, it has a small homey vibe. The 5 bed dorm are all single beds which is great. I had no problems or complaints about this place. Will definitely stay here again.


We stayed here for one night whilst on a road trip of the south island. The host is really nice and the hostel is a couple of minutes walk from the springs. The hostel feels very warm and homely. It has a great kitchen, garden, upstairs living space and lovely rooms. It even has a massage chair. I would highly recommend this hostel.
