More of a home-stay than a hostel or, to put it another way, all of comforts of home at hostel prices. The location is as close as you are likely to get to the city core and the (newly sited) Inter-City Main Bus Stop. Its very well equipped home, warm, comfortable, blissfully quiet and is kept spotlessly clean by a very hard-working owner/manager. It’s easy to find and difficult to fault. I'd go back tomorrow.....

The owner met me on arrival and showed me around the hostel. Was made to feel comfortable and at home. Staff were all very helpful and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Having never stayed in a shared dorm before, I was quite sceptical beforehand but felt settled as soon as I arrived. A lovely homely feel and plenty of facilities, I would highly recommend this hostel for those looking for a comfortable and relaxing stay with welcoming owners.

The best hostel I've ever stayed in! The owners are so friendly. I felt like home. As there are only a dozen beds, it is quiet and you can easily meet people. Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate, free washing machine, 50Mo free Wifi per night (more than most hostels in NZ). Just perfect!

Very homely place to stay. Not a place for party animals, that’s why we enjoyed it. Alan and Keiko are great hosts – Aland lent us a guidebook for our South Island tour and even gave us a map highlighting the best places to go – What a start!

I really enjoyed my stay there, the bed being really comfortable and the place extremely quiet. It is very homely!  Not the place to go if you want to party all night, but awesome if you need a good night of sleep!
