Awesome location. Hotel is really pleasant, my room was clean and tidy, the owners were wonderful and helpful. I believe we made a small inconvenience for them but they were continually pleasant. The location is two minutes from the main square, breakfast is provided, everything is clean and comfortavle and homely.
Rewarded myself with a single room after a long time of dorm rooms. I loved this old place. The people were very friendly and the price was not that much after all. The kitchen was great and everything was clean.
Garry is the best owner I have ever met in NZ, who is truly friendly, generous, genuine, patient and helpful. In the past 3 years, I have stayed in at least 30 different accommodations in NZ and Garry is definitely the best owner. I will highly recommend everyone who have the chance to come to Palmy staying here. You will be impressed by his hospitality.
Pauline and I spent recently a weekend in Palmerston North visiting friends and celebrating birthdays. We stayed at the Railway Hotel Backpackers and were very surprised about the generous and good service received. Starting with the caring hosts (Gary and Barry), the clean rooms and good bed, the original art works everywhere, turning on the heaters early in the morning, providing really nice soap for the bathrooms, free nibbles and free continental breakfast and newspapers and wifi. This is truly one of the best value for money accommodations and one that we can highly recommend. Don't get put off by the outside looks or the pub on the ground floor, the real life starts up the stairs. Thanks very much for your hospitality.
