It was the cleanest, nicest hostel we have stayed in in 20 years! We bought home made carrot cake (delicious) from the hosts, we had our own Netflix and this place was right across the road from a listed ‘Great walk’. A must stay!

we loved the view of the cliffs and the sound of the waves. It is a perfect spot for visiting Pancake Rocks, trueman track and a beautiful beach 1 minute away for a walk at sunset. The bar next door was excellent for meals as we were not aware there were no grocery stores in Punakaiki.

Great stop off!

Our room was two single beds as the double room was taken but it was just what we needed! We had blankets, a fridge, use of the main area which had games available for use! We didn’t use the kitchen but it had everything you could need. The only thing I would say is that the bathroom needs more light and somewhere to put your things but that’s only a minor point. We would stay here again if we were ever passing through.

We had booked a room with a private bathroom but ended up having the whole house to ourselves which was a lovely surprise. Great views from balcony. Fully equipped kitchen which is great as there isn’t much around in the way of dining out. Smart TV was a welcome addition.

Nice place to stay for a night as a couple if you get room 1 which is the only double ensuite with private balcony
