Property Description

    Lovely small Hostel, friendly staff. Although I had to come in after hours it was a smooth late arrival & clear instructions how to get to the room. Limited car parking spaces, so getting in earlier pays off. I found a road parking spot close by as I was late. Nice clean facilities and comfy lounge. The top bunk bed was a bit wabbly for me as it was moving with every turn of either me or the person below. So neither of us got a lot sleep, but it was ok. Just maybe something to concider upgrading

    Really enjoyed my stay at the cozy hostel! I was there for a pretty short time but it was very comfortable for chilling out on a rainy day and I loved all the penguin decorations. I also got upgraded to a private room which I really appreciated!

    Very sweet little hostel - homey and accommodating especially for a one night trip to Oamaru. Close walk to the Victorian part of town and a short drive to where you can see the penguins (or longer walk)!

    Friendly, quite and relaxed hostel, located just 5 minute walk from the town centre. Ideal for a quite day or two. Comfy beds, no more than 3/4 bed rooms, power sockets, clean communal bathrooms, complimentary towels, living room with wood burning fire. Kitchen is a little dated, but works just fine for a short stay. Great wee place.

    Feels like a home rather than a corporate hostel. Quite old fashioned but SO clean. Spotless! Nice lounge with a fire to keep you warm and plenty of books, tv etc for rainy days. Good kitchen with plenty of space for food. Good location in walking distance to everything. Parking outside always available. Cute cat!
