Enjoyed our stay here, the staff in particular were very helpful. Facilities were great although could do with an extra shower or two!


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. :)
