Last night we spent 100$ for cabin with washroom in the centre of Christchurch. Today we spend 100$ for bad smelling box in Havelock without even a table&chairs! We are so disappointed! There is just one poor bulb in the room and only one socket in the wall so our cell phones and tablet during charging are hanging on it's... More

Stayed in a double (without ensuite). Quiet, comfy beds, lovely towels and good quality toiletries awaiting us (not what we expected at a backpackers!). Great hot showers - clean with plenty of pressure to get all the biking dirt off. Friendly helpful owner with loads of advice and suggestions for our trip. Really well equipped kitchen, free tea and coffee,... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Blue Moon Lodge, and we just loved it. The Lodge is very clean and tidy and the Hosts Shane&Asha are absolutely lovely. No matter what, they are happy to help wherever they can. We also did the Kajak-Tour with Shane and that was great fun. :-) So, thanks a lot again for the great... More

Shane and Asha, the owners, made us feel very much at home in our double ensuite room on the first floor of the hostel. They booked the green shell mussel cruise (highly recommended) for us and we also enjoyed an inflatable kayak tour down the Wakamarina River. Shane and Phil were our guides down the river which was an awesome... More

If you're looking for a backpacker priced accomodation then BlueMoon Lodge is great. Clean, friendly and in the heart of Havelock. For my husband and I we signed up for the whole package, a night's stay and a kayak trip down the Pelorus River that these guys run. Our goal was to have a break from routine, from the busy... More

Nowhere else (yet) have I been invited to join a shared dinner with the owner and other guests before having even paid for the room. Shane and Asha, the owners, make you feel at home in their clean, comfortable and very well equipped hostel. Our double room was tidy, spacious, quiet and sensibly-priced. The kitchen and bathrooms are spick and... More

This is a good place in a fantastic location. It has a well equipped, spacious kitchen (with espresso machine) and the room we stayed in was clean and simple although bathrooms and toilets seemed a bit thin on the ground. A sample of the local mussels was cooked up for everyone to try at 6.30pm, local knowledge was freely shared... More
