We where pleasantly surprised by this hostel. It was all modern, absolutely great that each bed had there own plug/usb port and light. Modern wooden furnishing, great size of a kitchen. Towels and hand towels was a nice addition as usually hostels do not provide these. We where arriving late but owners where able to accommodate us and they went above and beyond and put me and my friend in a private room cause there was a big group in the other rooms

Totally new and clean, good service and security system. I drove from Hokitika and stayed here for 1 night but feel better more than I expect from this small town. Location is great, close to fresh choice. Recommend for everybody!
