Great location, easy to find and a short drive / quick walk into town. Limited parking available but plenty of streetside parking around the area. We stayed in the self contained apartment - kitchen was well stocked and room had a heater, nice and toasty at night. Wendy was great with food and parking tips and even switched on the heater before we came in which was a great touch. Good stable wifi. We didn't manage to see the rest of the "Nest" as our room had everything we needed, but I'm sure it was as great as the hosts. :)

Kiwi's Nest has the best atmosphere of any backpackers I have ever stayed in. This was my fifth stay in as many years - each time is great! (Mind you - I haven't stayed in a dorm room.)
Wendy and her staff are friendly, helpful and relaxed.

It was a perfectly acceptable and economical place to stay. Easy to catch the shuttle to the airport. An easy stroll into town. Catered for a vast range of ethnicity s and age groups. Fairly central too.

The building itself is a bit odd with its layout, bathrooms were oddly placed sporadically throughout, but it was clean and comfortable! I'd definitely go back if I were to find myself back in Dunedin.
