Thank you for your kind review. Yes we love the history of the old hut too.

We enjoyed our stay there for two nights. Perfectly functional and economical. We had two single beds. WiFi was good. Kitchen facilities were good. A great place to stay. We had left Timaru and after this stay we went to Wanaka.

And we would not want you back. The bugs are out of my control, if you kept your lights out when doors and windows are open- no problem. The mess in the kitchen is created by the other backpackers, not my doing. Perhaps you shouldn't...More
