A very friendly, well located and comfortable hostel.
A group of 4 girls and 4 guys came to stay for one night in December. The staff were great and the hostel was clean and well maintained. It's more like a large cabin than a hostel.
We also did their wine tour which was fine. We visited (in order) the following cellar doors: Lindemans and Rosemount Wines, Brokenwood, the Smelly Cheese Shop (next to Tempus Two), Constable Estate, and Savannah Estate. My personal favourite was Brokenwood.
It's located amongst vineyards and is a short walk from the Potters Brewery, which is a great place for dinner and beer after a day spent tasting wine.
There are a few private rooms other there a four bunk beds in each room.
The kitchen and bathrooms are centrally located in the middle of the building and a very tidy and clean (a big relief compared to many other hostels I've stayed at).
Also offered is woodfire pizza which I missed out on but would have loved to try next time I visit.
As the balcony surrounding the building is wooden expect to be awoken by thumping footsteps in the morning though.
Overall I'm very happy with my stay and experience.
