    Great vibe. Really nice hostel. However, the signage isn't obvious so it's a bit weird to find.

    On our stop to hobbiton

    This was a nice hostel but if I had to rebook I would probably choose somewhere else for my husband and I. I would really say it was set up for a younger crowd. My husband and I stayed here after visiting hobbiton. We’re in our late 20’s. The outdoor space this hostel has is great, lots of tables, hanging lights, lots of space. Each little unit/room is its own building. Not connected to the main building area which has the bathrooms and kitchen. So if you needed to use the restroom in the middle of the night you had to walk outside. That was probably my biggest complaint. We felt safe here. They have a gate they close each night and the parking was easy. The property was clean and the staff friendly.
