It was one of the nicest motel I've ever been to. Super friendly staff. I felt like home which I really needed at that point. And they even give you a free desert! Really nice and surprising. And surrounding of it is magical.

The place is funny, the kitchen is ok, the staff really welcoming, but I had such a terrible sleep with this kind of dorm which is actually just a big room with wood board used as walls to separate the dorms... Anyway, you are actually more than 20 is the room.. so you can hear a lot of different kind... More

This hostel is by far the worst we've stayed in. There was a very "interesting" group of people staying and we did not feel comfortable at all during our stay. The actual building has potential but has a very eerie and dilapidated feel. Nearly all of the other rooms were empty while we were there and it was like something... More

We enjoyed our stay in Atlantis, the staff is caring and welcoming. I appreciate the curtains for each bed in the dorms. No hot water after our late arrival w/ the last ferry of the day but i would stay there again if i could ! I really felt like I was at home :)

Welcoming, warm and clean with a eclectic mix of décor. The guests are well catered for, included in the accommodation was dessert and light breakfast, fantastic value. Cats are a added bonus to make it feel more like home.

If you don't like cats, stay away! Bit run down but cosy and friendly. Big living room areas and kitchen is a good size although it had no windows so felt a bit oppressive. Very good location if you have an early start on the queen Charlotte.

Since I could come only really late and I didnt have a booking, I rang them up, and the staff waited for me to come there. Staff is really welcoming and nice, good job guys! For 24$(non member of BBH) i stayed in the big shared room. Since it was already late, I had to keep quiet. The only problem... More

I stayed in the 4 person dorm for 23nzd and I even got the whole room to myself one night. Whoo! 20nzd deposit for the key, though. Staff was lovely and friendly, and so were the cats. Other guests were friendly and sociable. The free brekkie was toast with an assortment of jams. There were oats, if you're into that.... More

What a lovely place.. The hosts are the nicest people I've ever met. Welcoming, friendly, it's like you known them your whole life. You can choose between sleeping in a room with double bed or single, or in a dorm with a lots of beds. Real cozy dorm. I got a Harry Potter feeling of it. You feel like home,... More
