Pretty at night. Close to a bathroom and the lounge/kitchen, but private. The Lodge is close to the town, but...

The staff is awesome, clean facilities and super comfy beds. Staying here almost feels like being at home, all cooking equipment is provided, there are laundry facilities and free wifi. Outside the hostel is a bus taking you directly into town within 15 minutes. I just loved staying here. Highly recommendable!

The best Hostel I had in NZ. I was in the 8 bed dorm but that was not a normal dorm. There is after every 2 beds a divider. The hostel is verry clean with a nice modern facility. You're a part of the family there. Free tea and coffee and a really nice lounge.
