Couldn't believe this place when we checked in. We stayed in one of the en-suite rooms in the cottage, so not really "backpackers" accommodation or anything like it. The room was spotless, the bathroom recently remodelled and the room had its own mini-kitchen including microwave & fridge. All for $99 just 1 block away from the centre of Arrowtown.
I'm sure the website doesn't do justice to what they are offering here.
