George is the key !

Please understand that the Snow Den is a youth hostel. This is certainly not a negative, in fact I see it as a positive. Don't expect room service, a catered dining room or fully stocked bar ... because you'll be disappointed. This is inexpensive accommodation - not a 'cheap' nights stay. The Snow Den has a community feel. There is always something happening that you can be part of. The owner - George - makes this place. He has two separate "lounge rooms" - one for sports and the other for movies. He's a wealth of local knowledge - always around to help or tell a good story. On the last night of our stay, he came into the dining room with a case and shouted the patrons. George makes this 'the' place to stay.

Pros: The community feel ... and the owner ... George ... sensational !!!

Cons: The beds needs to be replaced ... and perhaps better heating. Sound travels between the rooms ... so don't expect a quiet place.

Location: Mt Hutt ... best snowboard/ski field in the Southern Island.
