Property Description

Our home, your home.

32 years of sharing our property to people from all over the world. YHA Springfield, Smylies is one of Springfield's oldest homes starting its history back in the 1870s as a guesthouse for the Bullock trains passing through. Set on just over one acre of grounds it offers plenty of space for rest and enjoyment and been extensively renovated with all modern backpacking facilities.

Our popular on-site Japanese restaurant is a hit with guests,please make sure you book just in case Keiko is having time off as well as Japanese baths in the winter. We have an extensive English and Japanese library, plus DVDs available for the days you'd rather stay in.

Skiers love the ski tune up room and drying room, and we can arrange transfers to nearby fields. Our team can advise on where to go bouldering around Castle Hill, have climbing mats for rental and even a mini climbing wall to practice on!

Nice, clean and warm hostel with friendly staff with great knowledge of the area. Ask them anything about the surrounding mountains and ski fields. Conveniently located close to the Club Ski Fields on the way to Arthur's Pass. Highly recommended. :)

We loved this place! Loads of parking. Super homely atmosphere. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Well stocked kitchen. Lovely wood fire. Loads of books and a tv room. Recommending this place to everyone we meet! No reviews as new to website but been running for a long time.
