Staff is very helpful with tours and activities. Kitchen is a little small. Please tell the owner of Manor House to remodel and expand the kitchen. The NZD 10.00 to the bus station is a excellent bargin.

Really good location for walking into the city or to the beaches, and the size of the 12-bed dorm was incredible! I've been in others where you can barely get between the bunks, so this was a lovely surprise. The kitchen could use a few more stirring spoons though :)


Great wifi, reliable and accessible everywhere. Kitchens were a little small in the other house, can't really have more than one person cooking, but there are two. Nice communal area with TV and seating. Big rooms so loads of space despite have lots of people in the dorms. Code needed to access the other building so quite secure. Shops a short walk away, a bit of trek into town, but definitely manageable. Nice hostel, good place to stay in Dunedin.


Really nice hostel, great location, and loved the homely feel the hostel had, as it was nice and cosy. Good kitchen facilities, always clean, beds were really comfortable, and it was nice to have single beds too - was a surprising change from bunk beds! Only thing I would say would be to have locks on the room doors. But overall really good hostel and great stay :)


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.
