“Priceless location, cozy, and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2009

I stayed at the Barn for 3 nights. I was camping so I can't comment on the rooms too much, but the dorm seemed funky and clean, if a bit cramped. The bathrooms were fine, but the kitchen was a little small - it gets crowded round about 8pm!

What I loved though was the outdoors terrace space, which is great for sipping wine while watching the sun set! The settings around the hostel were brilliant too: on the doorstep of Abel Tasman national park, unlimited view of the bay, huge eucalyptus trees right by my tent and tuis singing in the bush... Of 2 months of camping/hostelling round New Zealand, the Barn is my best camping memory!
