    A great place but my only fault to the place felt it needed more clothing hangers in the shower rooms and including a soap dish or rack in the shower maybe a show rubber matt to step out onto for drying off. Staff were great found it quiet heaps of parking and a large property with great value.

    This is a really spacious and clean hostel. There’s multiple kitchens and bathrooms, which is great for when you need to get in early for day trips. The decking area out the back is a total sun trap and offers great views of the mountains. It also offered free tea, coffee and WiFi - which so many other hostels charge for these days!

    I have stayed in countless hostels around the South Island and this was the least atmospheric and dirty. A bad experience.
