Good hostel with good facilities. The kitchen was well equipped and the numerous bathrooms/showers/toilets were always spotless no matter what time of day. Realy comfy double bed with nice bedding in a small basic room. Bit far from the centre but the bus stops right outside (although at $2.50 a go it makes it's not that cheap). Lots of rules made us feel like we were on a school trip but i suppose that's how they keep it nice. Would recommend.

Stayed: December 2007

Came here for one night but just couldn't leave. The people, the hostel, the lovely dog all contributed to this place being one of those where you just don't want to leave. The facilities are great and although we initially thought that the location isn't as great because it's a little out of the city centre, we soon changed our mind because of the shops and the bus stops being just over the road and the walk into town is pleasant enough too. Most enjoyed the central heating (it was toasty warm - not a given in NZ hostels!), the good beds and the laid back and relaxing atmosphere. Can't wait to come back next year. Cheers for creating such a homely hostel for us travellers.

There's a lot of pluses with this place: it's EXCEPTIONALLY clean, the cleanest place I stayed in, it's got fantastic security, and the staff is nice and friendly. But for some reason, I hated it. It was sterile, the list of rules goes on forever, and it's a good distance from the center of town. They are also a little inflexible about check in times - the trains have been running late from Picton, and I was told if I didn't get there by 8pm, I was out of luck. This is weird in a backpackers - I mean, it's a late train. Would 15 mins kill anyone? The neighborhood feels slightly dodgy, too. It's warm in the winter I'm sure, but it was COLD in my room, freezing, since they don't turn the heat on until it drops way down. I shivered all night (although the bed was comfy) even with extra blankets. Not a cozy place, but if you're looking for clean.....
