Thank you so much for making your hostel warm and welcoming. I arrived after driving through pouring rain all day and was so happy that my room was nice and toasty warm. Each room is heated, so the whole hostel is cosy. Very spacious kitchen and lounge room. Room rates are super affordable. Bathrooms were kept clean, and while the... More

Amazing place to stay! Cosy, clean, great matress and the hosts are very helpful! Geraldine has a country village atmosphere, with majestic old forests! We intended to stay just one night but we liked so much and we ended up staying one more night!

I stayed in Rawhiti House Backpackers last week for one night and I really enjoyed my time there. The backpackers is located about 10 minutes walk away from the main street in Geraldine. So it's a pretty quiet hostel, very clean and I found the owners really helpful and friendly.They gave me a lot of information about what to do... More

I stopped in at the quaint town of Geraldine in mid-December and my only regret is that I wasn't able to stay more than one night. The hosts Paulette & Craig - if I remember correctly - were very friendly and welcoming, and when they didn't have a single room available, they gave me my own room in a 'triple',... More

We stayed here for one night in a double room after cycling in from Methven and had a great stay. The room and facilities were clean and comfortable and the lounge area is a nice place to relax. The hosts also really make this place and are great to talk to. The best hostels are always the ones where you... More

Had a great time staying here. Facilities were perfect, and well maintained. Upgraded me from single to double for free, without request. Owners are lovely people; often offered to help run me into town for work, and even helped me prepare some baking in the shared kitchen. Thanks again for a great stay!

This place was a perfect stop for a good night of sleep after a busy night spent in Christchurch. The hostel is run by a lovely couple. They offer free tea, coffee and even milo drinks!! You can also have free apples from the garden...

Geraldine is a very nice and quiet place with beautiful houses each with a great garden. We did the Raikaia Gorge Walkway,a recommended walk indeed. A blizzard came up when we arrived at the beautiful top near the gorge, incredible adventure !

Not many people stop in Geraldine. If you are cycling around South Island Geraldine is a perfect stop on the way towards lake Tekapo from Christchurch or Methven. I didn't book a room, just tried my luck in early afternoon. They had a bed for me, I asked for the cheapest option, but got a double bed room for the... More

I really enjoyed my stay in Rawhititi House even though it was only for a night. The place is clean and very comfortable. Craig and Paulette, the hosts, are friendly and helpful. Craig even gave us a lift to the I-Site where we could catch our next bus. It really was going the extra mile for service and I really... More
