We stayed in the Rimu house for just 2 nights and it was just fantastic. Whilst Rimu may be a little older than the rest of the accommodation, it was exceptionally clean tidy and comfortable. As for the double bed being a little soft (as per previous review) this is subjective as we found it to be fine and significantly better than some other hostels. Laura, was fantastic -very helpful, accommodating and certainly made our stay very special, together with her dog. She kindly closed off one of the 3 rooms so that we could spread out and have the house to ourselves. Our only regret is that we didn't stay a bit longer. Staying at this Hostel was definately one of the highlights of our holiday!
