Nice and quiet hostel within 5 minutes walk from bus station. Staff is very nice and helpful. 4-dorm room spacious but no lockers in the room. 2 showers and 2 toilets in main building for 4 rooms (4 & 6 dorm), might get busy sometimes. Kitchen is kept clean, with good selection of accessories so no problem to cook even a big dinner. Lovely big garden is great especially because common room is a bit small. Free limited wi-fi and free storing of bags when you do more days hike and returning.


Great hostel. It feels like home (it is like staying in a friends house with a lot of friends). The only drawback is that they close reception too early and if you have to leave early the next morning, you probably lose your key deposit.


Great hostel. Recently renovated, everything looks new and is clean. Hostess is very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay. It was one of my best hostels in NZ.


I would like to thank again the manager who helped us to book the reservation for Abel Tasman early in the morning for the same day !


Great place to stay! Free wifi, Sky tv, long hot showers


wonderful place! great to have it divided in cottages.
