I stayed here for some weeks during my time working on a vinyard. Felt like a home from home, comfortable environment & good facilities, It was a wonderful experience. In the most part, this was down to the people. Always a friendly social atmosphere. The staff are incredibly helpful & went out of their way to look after me. Also creating opportunities for us all to get together; weekly bbq parties. The owner often having a fire or two on the go for us on chilly evenings after work, perfect! I've been in nz for over 9 months & never come across such a well run backpackers. Stay here anyone who wants to experience amazing 'kiwi hospitality'!
