Stayed here during labour weekend 2012. Fabulous stay- well located- within reasonable distance to Medway beach, hot springs, golf course etc. but the best thing about this hostel are the owners. Bruce and Kate do a wonderful job running the place- extremely friendly and great to sit and chat to, very helpful and ever so welcoming. The communal areas at the lodge are great- really good cooking facilities, clean, big comfy sofas which make socialising with fellow backpackers an absolute delight.

Really recommend staying here- good value and a first rate reception!

I spent 4 great nights here, excellently positioned on Aotea, you are half way to everywhere! it is an easy 2 km stroll into claris and there are little paths along the road to detour and take in the bush, mind the drivers though, both tourist and locals, however people are very friendly and helpful. The island itself is sooooo special. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth it. car hire is very reasonable, and an excellent way to get around the island, the roads are winding and narrow and mountainous some areas are sealed some not, however all are in good condition. Kate and Bruce are wonderful hosts and actually share their home with you. There are great bush walks for all grades of fitness, advice wear boots!!!! I didn't bring mine and wished I had. And bring food, there are great eating places, however food from the shop is expensive due freight, there is a market day at Tryphena on Saturdays with vegies and eggs(all local for sale). Amazing creative talent on the island, painters, sculptors, carvers, quilting, pottery .... the list goes on and an excellent gallery at Claris. Fishing, swimming, surfing, diving etc its all there on this great little place. A really good pioneers museum at Claris too, not much info available on Maori history. 4 days was not long enough to explore. but it just depends on where your interests lie.

We enjoyed 5 very comfortable nights at this backpackers. It had everything we required.
What made this accommodation special was the friendliness of kate and Bruce, who would do anything for us and were very kind and entertaining. We enjoyed the warmth of a lovely fire each night and good conversation.
Ill certainly recomment this place to others as long as they are expecting basic accommodation and intend to go out and about each day.

Room Tip: All rooms are very basic. The shared lounge and kitchen is the hub where you meet others and relax in.

The owner of our arranged accommodation didn´t turn up to let us in so Bruce and Kate rescued us by letting us stay at their place. Their hospitality made us want to stay there for the rest of the trip.
Basic backpackers sleeping area, nice kitchen / lounge area.
