Lovely homey feeling hostel. One staff member i saw the couple of days there was very helpful and friendly. Use of free wifi and free bike hire was a bonus

I was put in the 'stables' which on this occasion was perfect, but it was a bunk bed and a single bed put into the kitchen/living area for the bedroom attached nxt door. Luckily had lovely room mates and no one was walking in and out all night which i could see happening as its only access to the bathroom/entrance. Hostel is quirky and is a nice place to stop over before/after glacier trips. Free soup/breakfast bonus. Free Wifi after 6pm is useless/didnt work. Super friendly/approachable staff.

Only had a quick over night stay here but looks like a good place to chill and meet people. Good layout with dining and tv lounge on top. Very helpful lad on the reception when a large group of us arrived late from the ferry crossing! Room of 8 only have 2 plug sockets, not okay when most people were there just for a quick stop over! But everything else seemed okay! Free wifi a plus!

Cute hostel, with a good feeling of home! Not like big branded backpackers. Little bit further walk with bags from bus station then 5 mins, but they do provide pick up i shld hve used! Only down side is room of long termers very loud the nights i was there. Good facilities, beautiful views from kitchen and living area! Very friendly staff on reception. Would recommend! :)

Many thanks for taking the time to post comments. I apologise if the long termers (ie. backpacker staff) were noisy. I most certainly would have spoken to them had I had known that they were 'playing up' - we don't tolerate inconsiderate behaviour from our staff (who are mostly short term). They should be setting an example.

Stayed here a couple of nights, Great location and very helpful staff! Bit strange having the kitchen closed for 2 hours in the morning, but hostels very clean! Meant to be quiet after ten but very loud drunk girl somewhere in the hostel keeping my whole room up late. However, no reflection on the hostel. Would recommend and definatly stay again!

Excellent location. Large backpacker hostel so dnt expect any home luxuries that you'd get at a smaller indie hostel. Staff on training were friendly and helpful. Always smiling! Night guy was helpful! Bar attached was just as expensive as any other on the road, if not more, so not appealing for backpackers! Beds were comfy and showers/bathrooms very clean!
