We stayed in our camper van but got to use all of the facilities. Only $15 per person, everyone was so welcoming and made us feel at home. Definitely recommended. Great clean showers and all the staff are superb. Such a cosy homely feel. Pretty close to Dunedin city centre only about 10/15min walk.

I stayed four nights in May, and was very pleasantly surprised at the lovely room (no. 8) freshly decorated and with great bed linen, carpet,, heater and TV. This was way better than some hotels which charge way more. The bathroom facilities were clean and serviceable, no waiting around. The kitchen was well equipped, with a big fridge for guests'...

the staff was very nice. 2 charming old villa-style buildings featuring several kitchens, bathrooms, computers and community rooms. the facilities are clean. the only thing to criticize was the very slow wlan, but at least it was free :)

Great place to stay! Easy walking distance to city centre and very close to bus station. Helpful and friendly staff, good size rooms, and a good atmosphere! I didn't use the kitchen or lounge facilities, but I heard from fellow travellers they were great! 😊

This was a great place for a group to stay. It was clean, warm, comfortable and the staff were always pleasant and very helpful. Discussing the accommodation with free independent travellers, there seemed to be a general vote that this was one of the better Backbackers that they had stayed in. My only gripe would be, and this is from... More

Hi, Can't give much feed back re the hostel as we didn't stay there. What we saw of it was very nice. We turned up with our booking but our room had been affected by a leak. The manager had already booked us into the motel next door at no extra charge so our experience of their attitude and proactive... More

Staff very helpful and welcoming. Room was clean as were bathroom facilities. Didn't use kitchen facilities other to make a cuppa. After good sleep, coming off Otago Rail Trail, enjoyed our day in Dunedin.. Only small gripe was that it was hard to find as we walked from station.
