Good for an 80 years old person, boring otherwise.

I'm sorry you felt this way. Hope to see you again in 60 years, by which time you will find it more exciting!


You can't lock your room and everybody is able to come into the house during the day. After 9pm there is a code for the front door. The bed was nice and also the staff was very friendly. All was clean and I had a really great time in Dunedin with other guests from the hostel.

lovely review thanks.


Once you manage to drag yourself up the hill to reception/rooms, this is a brilliant place! Aa little out of town but its easy enough to get back in, and the atmosphere is brilliant. Met sone great people here and it really felt like home even if I did only spend 2 nights.


Good facilities especially for the very cheap price but lacking atmosphere. No locks on the dorm room doors- bit weird.

Thanks for the review, pleased you enjoyed the facilities, we are not a party hostel, we have movie nights and hot chocolates instead, it is also that time of year in Dunedin when things do get quieter.


Had a great time at this hostel!!! Huge 12 person dorm so it never felt cramped and really nice sociable atmosphere!
