If you are looking for a job in Blenheim and a place to stay, Copperbeech is where you want to be. It is the best rated BBH hostel in town for a reason. This white villa with a big garden and enough parking space is clean, cosy, and conveniently situated just 15 minutes from the town centre.The biggest asset of this working hostel, however, are the managers Svatka and Vinnie. The minute you enter the hostel, you know you will be well looked after. These guys will do anything they can to find you a job and make sure there is always some fun activity or a trip coming up.They also arrange weekly trips to Pack and Save with the hostel's van and will pick you up and drop you off at the bus station if you ask them. I stayed at this friendly hostel for 3 months and know many people who stayed longer or left and came back again, which speaks volumes about this place.

Room Tip: Germany (sunny, spacious, quiet dorm room) and Argentina (cosy and sunny twin room)

I stayed a couple of months at Copperbeech in Blenheim from June to August 2013 and it was the best experience I've had since I started travelling. The hostel is clean, cosy, relaxed and well maintained with fun activities for everyone to enjoy. The guys who run it, Vinnie and Svatka, are a huge part of what makes this place so great! So looking for accommodation in Blenheim? Look no further!

I really enjoyed my long term stay in this cozy and friendly hostel. It was a recommendation from a friend. I was happy that I acted on her advice because when I was entering the hostel I felt like home! It is located in a nice and quiet area, but it is only a 10 minute walk in town. The hostel is very clean and offers free washing machine.
The managers, Svatka and Vinnie, are very lovely and helpful. They pick you up from the bus station and offer shuttle service to Pack and Save. Also the weekly activities, for example Pizza and Movie Night, in the hostel promise always a lot of fun. Furthermore there are some events at the weekend as well: Trip to the beach, wine tour, walks to the hills….

It is a good place to meet people and find friends!!!
Thanks for everything! All the best for the future!

Room Tip: Argentina :) Twinroom, cosy and sunny!

I LOVED my stay at Copperbeech! Svatka and Vinny made me feel very welcome and planned tons of great activities to get everyone together. Everything from parties to wine tours to beach trips, there was always something exciting for us to do! The place was very clean with nice common areas for everyone to mingle. It's located in a quiet neighborhood and just a short walk from the town centre. Highly recommend if you're in Blenheim!
