    We really liked our stay. The blackout curtains for each bed worked well. The people were friendly. The facilities were very clean. I would suggest complimentary ear plugs in case someone in the room snores.

    I’ve stayed here before as well. Here was everything clean and a good atmosphere. When I went to Abel Tasman, I stayed here. One of my favorite backpackers here.

    We enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect next to Abel Tasman National park and the staff were very helpful and kind! The yard and the views are beautiful. Only minus about showers and toilets being cold, but when the weather gets warmer that won’t be a problem. We stayed in mid-September.

    Nice place and good location. Toilets and showers were outside which wasn't nice in winter, because it was cold and dark. Our 6-bed dorm had two beds that weren't cleaned before we got there (we were 4 so we had clean beds) which was kind of weird. Otherwise nice place.

    It's a very basic hostel but cool vibes, need lockers to be in rooms. Kitchen and social could do with updating. Nice location.
