I just loved staying at that hostel. We were there in August and got a room all to ourselves. Our room looked a bit girlish (all purple), which I just loved. This hostel certainly is different, but absolutely great. It's got a very positive attitude and you feel welcome and home right when you enter the front door. They have two kitchens, which are very spacious, a very cozy fireplace and the bathrooms are quite nice. The water pressure in the showers, however, wasn't really good. It took a while until you were all wet, but it's probably different is summer. Akaroa itself is marvelous. You will love it. It's so tiny, sweet and cute, and there are plenty hiking options around the peninsula.
