    This is an incredible place. It is very well laid out physically so it is very communal and easy to talk to people. The owners are lovely and caring . And there’s a hot mineral pool.

    Great location, staff at front desk were very helpful. We had a private double room and bed was hugeeee! Right next to bathroom and near showers which was great. Place was well laid out so other rooms couldn’t really keep you awake. Kitchen was spotless! A local guide also told me it was the best backpackers to stay in- deffo a great place.

    This has been my favourite hostel since I have been in NZ, the place had a great vibe which I really liked and made some great friends here. It's really chilled out here and it's in a great location. The staff were real nice too and the place had different discounts for things in the area. Would definitely come again.

    Best hostel I’ve stayed in so far. Warm friendly staff and left to our own devices. Not over crowded as no bunk beds so not thousands of people crammed in. Spa pool was amazing. 7 minute walk to pak n save which is brill. Spot on.

    Great hostel. Staff was phenomenal. Location is a bit far from the main downtown, but it's a small town, so, not a problem. WiFi can get overloaded with too many people. Be mindful of mosquitoes. The doggo they have is sooooo sweet. Kitchen was well stacked with good space. Bathrooms get cleaned around midday and they close off the one area to complete the schedule, so be mindful of that. In the mixed dorm, you are right by the entrance and kitchen/lounge area. Use ear plugs.

    I have to say a big thanks to this hostel for helping me jump start my car after I stupidly managed to leave the inside lights on all night 🤦🏽‍♀️. The hostel itself was comfortable. I was grateful to not be on a bunk bed for once! I get the feeling a lot of people stay here for long periods of time whilst working so the atmosphere was generally pretty quiet. It was a spacious hostel and the kitchen was also pretty clean :) It goes without saying that the staff were also v helpful and friendly.

    Great location, good vides, we met some great people staying here. Pleasant outdoor space for eating and hanging out. Large kitchen with lots of space for numerous people to be cooking at once. No lockers in the rooms but great single beds were very comfortable.
