Visited the bar to watch the rugby live on sky. Ended up having tea there too. What a great spot. Friendly staff and a pretty relaxed duty manager who you would think was ya mate. Was informed the meal was going to be a bit of a long wait (ordered the pizza) but if the time it actually took for... More

Spent 2 nights here with my grandson recently & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Yvonne, the owner was very friendly & helpful. The Lodge was booked out that first night so we actually spent that night in one room of their 'Cottage' (the cottage had two rooms so we shared the living area and bathroom with another guest) before we moved into...

This place is very good for a stop for trampers. The facilities were very clean and tidy. This has been the cleanest kitchen in a hostel so far (we have done a few) and actually provides surface cleaner and separate cleaning cloths for the surfaces (only one other hostel we have stayed in has have done this). We arrived quite... More

Stayed here prior to setting off on the Travers-Sabine circuit with a party of 6 and also stayed on our return. Excellent spacious motel unit and friendly staff. At the back of the motel there is a lovely bush walk next to a river down to the lake (and water taxi). Also parking for your vehicle at the motel while... More

Easily my favourite hostel in NZ. It’s super clean. Fairly quiet - apart from the big heavy doors that like to overpower you and slam shut. It’s the sort of place where solo travellers (especially trampers) can meet one another. The lounge room is the perfect spot to enjoy a book in front of the fire. There is an additional... More

This place is super comfi, and the owner is very nice. I arrived late with no booking, while the hostel was closed, but the owner agreed to let me in and gave me a room for the night. The common room is great, and the pictures on the wall make you want to go hike right away. I strongly advise... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. As I was going to be the only backpacker there on a cold wet night, they put me into one of the cottages. This was great - a very warm and comfortable place to stay. I have previously stayed in the Backpackers Lodge and it was equally comfortable with a spacious well-equipped kitchen.

We stayed 2 nights in the backpackers lodge. Room was comfortable, with bedding and towels supplied. Kitchen was large and very well equipped and all very clean. The owners were very helpful and knowledgable about walks in the area - we appreciated the tip to spend a night at Blue Lake Hut. We made use of the lockers and 'trampers... More

Nothing fancy but an excellent kitchen, well stocked. Clean and comfortable group setting bunk beds. Friendly staff. It was the perfect spot for the four of us to stay. Reasonable prices. We enjoyed our stay.
