Warning to all backpackers
When I called to make a reservation to stay here while backpacking around I was rudely told that because I was from New Zealand I couldn't stay in this hostel. But shouldnt all backpackers be allowed to stay?
Dont go to this discriminating hostel

Stayed March 2008

Leeways-Management, Manager at Leeways, responded to this review, February 5, 2010
Although this was almost 2 years ago, I thought a response was in order.

Despite the review Leeways do allow Kiwis to stay, although we don't take reservations for anyone. You must come on the day (or call us) to see if we have space.

As for the rudeness, I apologize on behalf of the Managers at the time and hope that you will try us again.

Many thanks

Joe Howie, Manager

If you have to work, come to Blenheim and stay here. This is a well run hostel with 2 staff members who will look after you and who make it feel like staying with family not in a hostel. It is kept clean at all times, and they frown upon those who don't do their washing up, which is great. It is so relaxed and fun that instead of 2 weeks, I stayed 6!
