An amazing family runs this hostel. They were really helpful with everything, they even dropped us off to the places we wanted to go and helped us when we crashed our car. Their son Jackson guided us on the walks and paths nearby, took us to centre and showed everything around, which was really fun. Everyone should go and meet these people and have fun like we did. Definitely the best atmosphere by far and definitely I will go back to this place. Thanks guys.


What a great place. Very friendly atmosphere where you meet a lot of interesting people and exchange stories and information. You come as a stranger and leave as a friend. Ian goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. This place is a great value. No worries at this hostel. Thanks for a great time, Ian.


Ian (the owner) helped us to find people doing the Crossing so that we could exchange car keys and start from both sides simultaneously. Was a great experience! And he recommended other hostels and places to visit.

Very lovely and welcoming place. Ian the owner will try to make feel at home and help with any travel plans you have! A really good place to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing from!


This hostel is great place to meet people. The atmosphere is a plus and there's free wifi.
