Only stayed a night but was a nice stay. Would recommend
The facilities, especially the kitchen are great. And the bathrooms are nice as well. It is pretty close to a lot of the adventure in the area, which is useful. The staff was okay and the place didn't have much of a vibe but if you're looking for a good place to stay, but maybe not meet people this definitely works.
Great location, close to town.

We loved this place! Staff was awesome, room and common areas were spotless, and the weather was beautiful the entire time. Very impressed.
I liked that they were not too many people staying in one house. Houses are really clean, and well equipped. Beds were comfy and everything were close.
The hottub was nice, especially after a long day hiking or kayaking in the Abel Tasman. Not enough bathroom possibilities for the amount of people staying.
One of our favorite hostels that we stayed in throughout our trip to New Zealand! Atmosphere is great and the wifi is great. :)
One of the best Hostels we stayed in in New zealand. Nice, quite and clean. Extremely well Equipped Kitchen and cosy communal area.
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.
