I stayed here for one night during transit. The owner was absolutely amazing and we had a very nice conversation when he drove me to the hostel. The beds are a bit more expensive then the average in NZ and not to special, but it was still a enjoyable stay in a nice atmosphere.

Been there for one night. Hosts have been very nice, rooms and bathrooms were clean. There's a kitchen where you can cook and a nice lounge. Wi-Fi was good as well. If you need to get to the airport they offer a shuttle service for 5$. The only disadvantage is the lack of restaurants nearby

I had booked a room with a bathroom on line. When I arrived I was told that I was sharing a bathroom. The accommodations appeared dirty and disorderly. There were people in the hallway drying their hair. The Asian female refused to stop the payment for the room. I called booking.com and they said it was up to the manager... More

This was a neat place to stay. More for backpackers and easy airport access. The host Scott was amazing with a pick up drop off service to and from the airport. Had separate bathrooms, lounge room with t.v and fire place, kitchen and laundry and an outside swimming pool/ spa area. Has a front balcony or chill out the back.... More

5 minute drive from airport and have shuttle service. Owner is very nice. Rooms are quite big and there was a lot of space for my suitcase. Hostel looks a bit dated, but showers, kitchen, etc. worked well.

Last year we hired a car and stayed in BBH hostels all throughout NZ, but nothing, just nothing could compared with the atrocious behaviour of the managers in this hostel. Scott was so rude, he wouldn't let me discuss the problem I was having with my credit card as it was Easter, and a bank error. I know they need... More

I was arriving at midnight so booked a room through hostelworld.com. The owner, Scott picked me up at the airport for just $5NZD! I got upgraded to a very nice fullly-equipped motel room. Even fresh milk in the fridge for morning coffee! The place is a time capsule from the 1960's, like the movie "Blast From The Past". It is... More

Clean and simple property that is everything you need for a basic overnight stay before or after your flight. Nice location so close to the airport but in a lovely rural setting with food options close by. Booking process was easy and having a shuttle pick you up in the middle of the night is wonderful.

This quirky little backpackers was spotlessly clean and staffed by super friendly people who went out of their way to make guests welcome, and do airport pick ups and drop offs in the early hours of the morning. Very happy with this place, nice vibe and would transit here again.

We have been to all corners of NZ - and the service and friendly attitude at skyway sadly is becoming rare. We saw several instances ( in one night ) where the operator took all effort and care to provide help for travellers when all to often people just want rid of the question!. Well done and top draw location... More
