Booked here for one night in the dorm before my Abel Tasman trek. The room was clean and comfortable and the facilities good, although the toilets and showers are in a separate building which is a pain if you need to go in the night. Nice enough hostel however the host/owner is not friendly at all! No smile or friendly... More

We stayed in campsite 33 for 3 nights. Direct view of the water and Abel Tasman, and a hidden hammock! The showers are awesome with windows facing the water. Kitchen facilities and public spaces were great. Such a great place for launching off into Abel Tasman.

Had a pleasant stay in the dorm. Clean rooms & the facilities were not far from the dorm. Kitchen, dining room and the TV room where all nearby. Loved the TV room the most. Lots of movie selection & a huge TV! Best of all Abel Tasman National Park entrance is just minutes away, making it the best place to... More

I stayed here with my Stray tour and I really enjoyed it. The dorms were newly built, spacious with very comfy beds (with featherdown duvets!) and very clean. The kitchen, diningroom and livingroom were situated in the barn. Very cosy and it kind of had a camping feeling to it: I loved it. In the livingroom you can watch a... More

We stayed there for two nights, before we went to the abel tasman and when we came back. It wasn't high season so the campground wasn't really crowded, there weren't many people at all. Besides the one busgroup at our second stay, but they were nice and not too many. The kitchen is nice. The tv-room is great, nice couches... More

We booked a special winter deal cabin for $45 for 2. As we arrived in the Barn it was sunny and warm but during the night it was really cold outside. But this was not really a problem. Not at all! Our cabin was new and pretty good isolated and they provided 2 hot water bottles for the night. All... More

Wow this place is amazing. Right at the beginning of the track with amazing views out over the Bay. A real special piece of NZ. Pete, Donna, Lo and Milan have put so much work and effort into transforming this backpackers and camping ground. There is accommodation for all levels of traveler and plenty of it. All new and beautifully... More

First, the setting of The Barn is beautiful and its location ideal for exploring Abel Tasman National Park. You can see the beach from the camp grounds (and possibly your room, if you have a good view), and it's a very short walk until your on the Abel Tasman Coast Track to Anchorage. The "cabin," however, is little larger than... More

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
