We really loved this place! Stayed here after finishing the Abel Tasman Coastal Track. It is not even a 2 minute walk from the end/beginning of the track. So the location is just awesome! And you ve got a really nice view around the place! Don't think we ever took a shower with a view like we had there! Just... More

I stayed here as part of my tour around the south island on the stray bus, one of the best hostels we stayed in due to the fact we didn't have bunk beds, everyone had their own single bed with lovely comfy duvets. The kitchen was lovely and cosy. The only downside was that the toilets and showers were quite... More

Good modern accommodation blocks laid out in separate cabins - some private, some dorms. Comfy single beds (no bunks!) but we found the dorms a bit sparse - lack of shelving/hooks, only a couple of electric sockets, one small wall-heater and seemingly a complete lack of insulation! It was very cold overnight! The place seems more geared towards the good... More

I stayed here with my mom and sister, we opted to stay in the shared tents, but they also offer bunkhouse accommodation and spots to pitch your own tent. Catering to low-budget travelers, it's a no-frills place, with a friendly laid-back atmosphere. The main bunkhouse also has a communal kitchen and bathroom facilities, and is a great place to meet...

Found this place by accident and totally loved it. Within walking distance to the start of the Able Tasman great walk and the beach. Reasonably priced, great service and family friendly. We almost changed plans so we could return for a second night. Highly recommended.

We stayed at The Barn for 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer. It is right next to the entrance to Abel Tasman National Park and the friendly, helpful staff booked kayak and water taxi trips for us. The layout is superb - lots of options from tents to dorms to cabins. We stayed in a sparkling clean new... More

Convenient for the location. Accommodation was ok. We had a little cabin that had a gorgeous view. However it is just a tin cabin with no insulation and can be pretty cold, hence why you get two large blankets. New toilet blocks were great. Nice to have a hot, good pressured shower after a long hike. Didn't find the staff... More

Average welcome and check in. good enough twin cabin with extra duvet and hot water bottle with clean sheets. Had a fanastic view of the park and sea. Brand new toilets and showers block. The showers were great. I think the barn inside kitchen could do with an upgrade and maybe a few more tables but the fireplace was super... More
