Set in a gorgeous region of the west coast, I enjoy the warm comfy really feel about this property

  Michaela B... 

Good location to stay. Rooms are quite big, which is nice, bath rooms are relatively clean. Outstanding staff - unfortunately, my sweater had gotten lost at the hostel and it only appeared right after I had left to Queenstown, so the guys maintained to put it on an intercity bus, so that I could collect it in Queenstown. Thanks so much again!

  Customer Review 

Rooms and cooking area were generally clean, NO damp smell in rooms. Dorm rooms had windows that open. Individual reading light for each bed. Huge kitchen, well equipped. Heating inside the rooms worked well, so no problems with cold. Always individuals inside the common room to hang out with and socialise. Location is good, Intercity bus drops of and picks up right from outside their door, market place place is 2 mins walk away. Did not try out sauna, so can say absolutely nothing about it.

Big cooking area with ovens. Separate tv room with DVD player. Fire with sofas is a amazing spot to read a book.

Though I only stayed for one night I really liked this place. Very friendly staff, very nice and warm setting in these cold winter days. Cooking area and bathrooms clean and all in stainless steel. And free sauna, awesome to have some luxury stuff when you are a borderline broke backpacker : )
