Tristan is a fantastic host and very knowledgeable. Overall he was genuine and kind. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and the facilities very clean. The only thing is that wifi access is limited outside the main building, but understood for NZ.

What a fantastic place! We stayed at several hostels across the South Island and this was the best by far. An amazing host whom was friendly and informative. The place was warm and cosy. We managed to meet other guests and have some great conversations during our stay. There's a great sense of privacy as well if you want it in the upstairs lounge area. Facilities were great as well. Amazing kitchen, fully decked out pantry including chicken salt!!! I highly recommend.

This is a gorgeous little hostel where it is really easy to believe your home. Tristan and Yoko are great hosts, helpful and smiling. Beds are very comfy. I couldn't recommend enough!

This is the best hostel I have stayed at. The shared facilities are terrific and the dining area cosy with a real wood burning fireplace that makes coming back from a days hiking or lazing around in the hot springs a real treat. The hosts are great with local knowledge and on occasion bake scons to share with their guests. You feel more like a friend staying for a couple of days than a paying guest. Going to Hanmar Springs? Stay here.
