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!

Furthermore there's plenty of space, a good Internet deal ($5 unlimited) and GREAT sho
