Just had an overnighter here to watch the rugby. Very cosy place to stay, the staff were very helpful and cleaned our room quickly which allowed us to check in early. They also accommodated my request to move their car so that we could park off the street. Thank you guys!

We had a fantastic stay in Dunedin thanks to the host Wendy. She is such a sweet person looking after everybody and really caring about the guests. We can absolutely recommend this place. Great value for the money. Best wishes from Jaakko and Anni from the cold North

The staff were super friendly and helpful - could not be faulted. The showers are powered by the fire place which goes all day and provides heating to the building. There was also a heater in the room which took a while to heat up due to it's size (we could have done with a smaller room) but got there... More

Excellent email communication and friendly face to face contact made our group of 6 feel very welcome. The hostel was safe, clean and quiet at night.

The Kiwis Nest is a nice hostel in central dunedin. It is clean, has multiple kitchens, bathrooms and a lounge. It is managed by Wendy, who is one of the loveliest people I met. She takes great care of the Kiwis nest and all guests, and stands up to drunkards who try to disturb the peace of this place ;)... More

Good location, just out of town. Parking is easy and free. Reasonable size rooms which were clean - although dated. Good, free wifi. Nice fire, making the place cosy. A little noisy at night (we were towards the front of the property). Good kitchen facilities. Very good value for money.

Our room had a TV, a small refrigerator (with several small milk containers), hot water pot, tea and coffee and the wifi was fast and free. We... More
