One of our favourite hostels in NZ. Free breakfast, soup and most of all chocolate pudding with ice cream! This became the focal point of our stay! Staff were super friendly, kitchen was good size and well stocked, room was clean and comfortable (few ants but no biggy ) and free Wifi also. Would definitely stay here again!

My whole family really loved staying here. It was clean, comfortable and the staff are really lovely. An unexpected bowl of soup on a cold night added to the excellent experience. (Good wifi too).
