Going here no one should expect luxury. It used to be a boy’s school dormitory … since the 1910’s!!! So considering the beating a place like that has endured its amazing the place is still standing. Lotsa’ traffic lots of use,by lotsa of guests from EVERY walk of life and it shows as there’s a bit of wear and tear here and there. But it’s clean and neat and full of hospitality. The proprietors are extremely kind and welcoming helpful and flexible. And the hostel puppies are sweet and endearing. You can’t expect style or luxe but you’ll come away with excellent memories and a warm heart. And quite probably new friends.

Exactly what I required for a 1 night stay before my event. Close to town, quiet, great pricing and the hosts were very accommodating of my requirements making sure I had everything I needed. Glad I discovered Ducks & Drakes for future trips.

My friend and I stayed here for the weekend so we could do the Pouakai crossing. The motel was perfect for our needs. Very clean and comfortable. We liked the fact we didn't have staff in our face everytime we walked through the door. We had brought some kitchen utensils with us as we didnt know what to expect and we needn't bother. Everything was there. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
