Really nice owner and very clean. Good location close to the Center. Had a fireplace and a lot of games and books for use. My problem was that the rooms have no heater, they offer extra blankets and hot water bottles but I was freezing like hell. I tried to spend most time next to fireplace. Would recommend it in summertime. Perfect parking spots.

A lovely hostel and run by a really nice family, they certainly make you feel at home, it was lacking atmosphere when I was there, I felt like I was Jack out of The Shining! Maybe that's because I went in the shoulder season. Security was a concern as twice I came back to my room and the cleaners had propped the door open once they'd finished cleaning so my stuff was free to anyone! Immaculately clean and cosy place though definitely recommend.

Walking distance to Hanmer Spring. Clean and tidy place. They got a huge TV! That's the biggest I ever seen in so many hostels. Will recommend friend to stay in in future.
