One of the best hostels that I've ever stayed. Small but very familiar and pretty confortable. The room was shared with 9 more people but was pretty big and had a big table with 4 chairs, perfectly suitable if you want to make some arrengements with the laptop like was my case (mine was broken and they let me their...

Leeways is great! Super relaxed atmosphere and full of friendly people (guests and managers alike). It's clean, there's a big kitchen that is well-stocked, free laundry, big TV room & book share, and a lovely outdoor area to hang out and enjoy the sun. I wish I could spend more time here but the few days I've had are enough... More

I stayed 4 weeks at Leeways and really liked it! I had a good little room (even with a walk-in wardrobe, how cool is that?!), the showers were hot and had a adjustable pressure which was really nice after a hard day of work. There is free laundry and daily activities are offered. Once we came back late from work... More

I like here very much. I came back here three times. Because here is like a dormitory or a big family home. And people are very kind and friendly especially the managers.( If you have a problem, just ask them. They would readily help you.) And also it keeps to clean and tidy at all times.( If you found a... More

We had an awesome stay at Leeway's! Nightly activities, clean facilities, and very nice staff. What else can you ask for? (Also, there's 3 bathrooms, unlike the previous review :) ) We also had fun at the BBQ in the back yard and hanging out in "the shed"! We would definitely stay here again on our next time in Blenheim.

We did not enjoy our stay at Leeways - really it is a hostel for those working in the area long term than for travelers. The most poorly equipped hostel we have stayed in so far, and very inattentive management. We were unfortunate enough to visit at the weekend when the workers were drinking and going out, which did not... More

We only stayed the one night but would definitely come back, the managers were super friendly and helpful, the place was clean and homely and the beds were really comfortable. Nice paintings on the doors and things was cool. The only thing I didn't like was the bathroom arrangement, the showers were in the communal bathroom and didn't have locks... More

I stayed here for almost 4 months. The atmosphere is great (small hostel --> everybody comes in contact with everybody) and the managers asists you with finding work. The weekends in the partygarage have been always much fun (legendary beerpong matches and so on). The bathrooms are a bit small but clean. Same as the kitchen! i'm sure you will... More

What a fantastic place to base yourself at when you are working and travelling around NZ. I had a great time here and met such wonderful people. Paul & Chrissy (the owners) where my Kiwi Mum & Dad and I miss them so much. Can't wait to come back for a visit. Leeways is a young friendly place where everyone... More
