Location of the hostel was perfect and the facilities good and clean. However, there were no free security lockers and the staff seemed to be there mainly to socialize with each other. When I asked about some activities, the staff seemed a bit uninterested in their response. The athmosphere was so and so, most people seemed to stay there for one night and then move on.


Hostel was very, VERY clean! The only problem was that the bathrooms has no heat, so taking a shower was a tad unpleasant. Aside from that, everything was perfect! Comfy beds, heating in the room, and a great location.

We stayed there for two nights. Everything was alright but we didn't feel welcome from the staff when we arrived and didn't get any Briefing about the house or town.


Great hostel, heating in rooms and big kitchen. The woofers in the hostel not so nice, came in the room without knocking. Other staff excellent.


Good atmosphere, nice people. I had a great time here.


The staff was very friendly, fun and helpful. They were well informed about the walks and other activities in the region. Everything was very clean, big kitchen, big garden with bbq, good heating in bedroom, tv room and lounge. Free DVD hire, washing and drying clothes not too expensive... And this hostel does a big effort to support nature by recycling and hanging up tips and tricks to help the environment. Other hostels could take this as an example! There's no global gossip internet but telec


Very clean and organised. Worth staying.


Thanks guys!


We stayed on a very queit night, and had a 4 bed dorm to ourselves. TV room was great as were the kitchen facilities. Like most places in NZ no free wifi.


A large hostel that doesn't feel big at all!


a little bit confusing inside the facilities, but really clean and cozy, love the kitchen. large parking space, we had to check in very late, but the reception help us a lot.


Decent enough hostel. Room does not automatically close which lowers the security. No free wifi.


More power sockets in the dormitory rooms, located next to the bunks, would be helpful
