    Only stayed 1 night but it was fantastic. A small, cosy, social hostel with everything you need. Comfortable beds, a great lounge with log fire and TV. All the staff were great, happy to help you with anything! I'd definitely stay again!

    Had a lovely time staying here again. Very welcomed. Such a warm toasty hostel to rest after being in the mountains. Clean bedding. Good showers. Convenient location. Linda is awesome. Can be a home from home for tired travellers. Definitely would recommend.

    We stayed here over a weekend in a double room. We were provided with fresh linen and towels, the bed was a good size and comfortable. The room came with a TV/DVD player, electric heater and blanket, however we did not feel the need to use either of the heating facilities as the lodge was comfortably warm without them on. The lodge is located at a walking distance to town and supermarkets. If you are visiting Methven for Mt Hutt the bus will pick you up from outside the lodge.

    Great location with friendly staff, it's more of a house where you're renting a room than a "hostel", which was nice. Beds were comfy, the kitchen was spacious and it was well located in Methven with a decent amount of parking. Possible negatives: - The beds use fluffy blankets instead of sheets, which were pretty hot + itchy - The walls are quite thin, so when someone was watching a movie I could hear it next door - Wifi limited to 3gb
