Comfortable lounge where you can watch tv or Dvds are available. FREE Wifi that actually works. Cook yourself some dinner in the nice clean kitchen. Awesome friendly staff. Great place to make new friends and see a great city.

I was living in a female dorm. The room was warm and cosy. I like the big window beside my bed. Kitchen is a little bit messy but it is okay for me. Manor House is not close to the city(15-20minutes walk). But it is very close to the Transport Centre(NakedBus stop) and it just took me a few minutes... More

Good overall! Excellent facilities (WiFi especially). Only negative is the showers. Impossible to have a warm shower. Turns ice cold every 30 seconds. We stayed here for 3 weeks and was overall excellent.

This was one of my favorite backpackers! Super fast wifi, charming, and friendly people! I definitely felt at home. The host guy was really cool and helped me find some penguins! Did I mention the wifi is wicked awesome? And free? Yeah, don't see that in New Zealand.

Great to get feed back on our wifi, we changed over to the fibre cable which is so much faster and seems to be more reliable, yes we believe the wifi should be free, so everyone can skype home, get on facebook etc Enjoy the rest of your trip. More

They have very friendly reception staff, a well equipped kitchen (free tea and coffee) and lounge room (with a selection of DVDs) and wifi throughout the hostel. They had nice warm, clean rooms. I would definitely stay there again.

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'...
