We stayed one night at this place and would definitely stay again! Grate place with friendly staff. Easter bunny stopped by and left plenty of eggs for everyone, awesome surprise!
Minna, nzTrip with friends
Very good 8.0
Just a backpackers
It is just a budget backpackers nothing fancy in the way of breakfast but they keep toast topped up. Place is pretty clean, if we were to stay again we would get an ensuite room as waiting for showers was not ideal but all part of being in a hostel. We were a little gutted when we arrived 15 minutes early to check in they made us sit down until check in time understandable but irritating as we were down there for a hospital trip
Victoria, nz2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
We’ve booked a four bed room and they gave us a six bed room without tell us and without any discount.

Eli, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Clean, comfortable, good value
I stayed in a single room for 3 nights. The team were all friendly and welcoming. Free tea, coffee and breakfast a nice gesture. The only thing that would give this a solid 5 are more chairs outside on the sun deck.
