    My fave hostel in the NZ. The location is amazing with the beach, bus, wineries and restaurants in walking distance. View, with tons of beanbag chairs and tables in the shade of a massive old tree, can’t be beat. Staff was so lovely and helpful on the phone and in person. It’s very clean. I was in the mixed dorm and it was spacious and had lockers. Already planning my next trip.

    Really clean nice hostel. Good kitchen. Nice rooms, good clean bathrooms. Need a car as it’s a long walk from any shops cafes etc, but beautifully isolated away from any town a short walk down the hill to the beach. Busses do run past though. Not a great place to meet people if that’s what you want, more set up as a quiet hostel. Nice though, very chill.

    Nice moderate size room. Bed good. Clean space. Had a heater. Bright and light. Big window. Kitchen clean, well stocked. Other travellers v friendly. Only 1 negative comment. The walls do not appear to have any soundproofing as we had only got to sleep to be woken up by people talking in the kitchen which went on for some time. I am not blaming the people, they weren't loud but still the sound travelled right into our room. This is not an easy fix.
