    I loved this hostel from the moment we arrived. The manager was friendly and helpful. We were offered home-made soup in the evening at no charge and breakfast in the morning. The location is very close to town center and there are wonderful pubs and eateries very close. Bird life was abundant in the native bush around the hostel and apart from bird sounds the area was very quiet.

    Fantastic hostel. My friend and I stayed for 3 nights. Staff are super friendly and couldn’t do enough. The kitchen is superb and SO clean with a lovely spacious dining area. We found the hostel really friendly with a lovely atmosphere and was so easy to spark conversation with people. There are ample things to do in the area. We particularly enjoyed the walk around Lake Matheson (you need a car to get here) and the kayak tour on lake mapourika.

    This is a pretty standard hostel with good value. The free breakfast is a nice plus, however, it gets really crowded in the kitchen in the morning.

    The company was mixed age and friendly. Cozy with tin roof that didn’t leak, because it rained every minute while staying. Popcorn at front desk neat & soup at 6 with breakfast a real plus short stay, but would stay again

    There were no lockers in our dorm, but we otherwise enjoyed our stay. It was easy to arrange a shuttle to hiking trails and the free popcorn and soup was great touch.
