Very clean, nice rooms, good kitchen facilities, cosy common area and very helpful and pleasant staff. Great point of access for the Waitomo caves. Also located on farmland, with some highly entertaining animals present, including some adorable and very personable fluffy pigs.


Such a fantastic hostel! We had an amazing time here, and were genuinely sad that we had to leave. I highly recommend staying here!


Excellent! Would defiantly stay here again!


good hostel, attentive front desk worker, the fireplace was so cozy at night after being in the freezing cold blackwater rafting cave.


If you travel Intercity, ask to have them drop you off since you pass it on the way to town. The hostel is right across the area where the Black Water Rafting Co tours start so it was really convenient. The room was comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The man that works there is a real jokester so prepare to be picked on a bit. He's nice though and will give you a ride if you need it.


Lovely hostel. Wish I'd known just how lovely before I planned to leave after only one night! Could definitely spend a lot more time here, especially in the summer.


Nice, warm and cozy. Staff really friendly. Kitchen kind of dirty, but close proximity to The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co. is a plus (on opposite side of road)


Great hostel! Really nice location, nice garden! And the staff was so nice too! We had to wait until 6pm for our bus and the aloud us to use te kitchen and living room for free. I really recommend this hostel! The only thing that I missed where some lockers in the room and the mattress weren't that great.. Ps the tubing in the caves is amazing!!


It is a bit far from the caves and info center in town. But otherwise clean, quiet, and overall good stay.


Very nice place and the staff are fantastic.
