Great price, very nice people. Very friendly driver who showed me around at the Broken River ski club. Allowed stops at the supermarket without any extra charge. Also, a spacious car with plenty of space for skis and bags!

I don't leave reviews very often, but I feel so strongly that the operator of this hostel was hateful that I feel obliged to. I arrived at the hostel around 8pm to enquire about renting a bouldering mat. At approximately $20/day of rental, I asked a few questions about it, such as if I would be able to have a... More

We had a great stay here. The owners are really friendly and helpful, and the hostel meals are brilliant value. We had one dinner, which was 3 courses and tasty homemade food. Dinner is $20pp and breakfast is $7.50 continental / $13 fry up (we didn't have either). The main hostel building has a good kitchen, lounge, piano room, and... More

Stayed recently on a trip across to the west coast. The staff were really welcoming and the accommodation was clean and well presented. Great for an overnighter if your travelling across to the coast or would most probably be great for a longer stopover if that was your plan.

Stayed on a Thursday before the start of the Cricket World Cup. This was the only place available outside of Christchurch. We're glad it was. A bit worn but very comfortable, a big bed a couple of leather armchairs and a reasonable kitchen. This hotel is a backpackers but was better than many other motels we stayed at in NZ.

But instead of getting the normal horrible hired shoes we got the new nitro la sportiva (they have maybe 7-8 pairs) and a new crash-pad (mat). They rent also guidebooks for Castle hill. And you can return the gear late after a long day of bouldering cuase they are a hostel... More

Great place to stay, good food, real cozy, the family that runs this is friendly and approachable. Lots of things to do ranging from board games to sports. Overall fantastic experience. (You can skip the part after this) As the review must be 200 characters, I'll talk about how the radio in the toilet turns on once you step inside,... More
