Score from 48 reviews Good
Great sense of hospitality...simple place with a lot of character.
Could be a bit cleaner. That's all. Otherwise a great place to stay
Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights while we did the Alpine crossing. We were planning on getting the bus to the start of the hike and pay the 45 dollars for the bus trip. However, Ian offered to take us himself the next morning. He said the best time to do it was 5.00am and he was right!! After we got in the door from our hike he had homemade bread and everyone could help themselves. We had an open fire in the lounge that evening. Just what we needed! We recommend this place to everyone who is willing to let their hair down! It's true what they say- the owners make hostels your home. Ian was so full of knowledge. He won't let you down.
The owner is very friendly and helpful! A unique place with style, we all love it.
Ian is super friendly and helpful, and made our short one night stay memorable (he even tried to give me a cat to take away with us.) Handy location as we had just finished the Tongariro Crossing.
Bathroom facilities were clean but could use updating.
Ian the host was friendly and helpful. Kitchen n lounge both good.
The room was dirty and sheets not changed... The mattress was awful. Whole place in need of an upgrade.
We liked the character of the place. [This was a stop for us on the way to wellington for the inter-islander].
Very friendly staff. Old but clean bathrooms and kitchen. Cheap for a family of 4 it cost us $66! comfortable rooms. Others guests seemed happy and content.
Place needs a really good tidy up as first impressions really matter! One cat had a terrible eye infection - not a good look as the first thing you see!
The staff were very welcoming,
price,facilities,excellent showers,friendly staff
decor was a bit rough but that was all.
The host is really friendly and likes to talk to his guests. We got very good travel advices for the area around the hostel. Thank you very much...
a little bit far on foot
Love the character of the place and admire the many beautiful artwork by the young host! We will be back!
I ensure that it feels like home there!
The owner was fantastic, went out of his way to help me, even drove me to the bus stop 1 in the morning
Really quirky place with an indoor fire pit and hostel-like wall paintings. The owner was eccentric, chatty and funny. Showers were amazingly hot and powerful.
Not luxurious accommodation but at a very reasonable price.
Friendly Owners. Great atmosphere for chatting to others
Friendly owner, good value for money
Facilities could do with an upgrade (toilets, thin walls so can hear people in neighbouring rooms)
Owner very friendly.
Great for kids and families. We wanted a cheap base for skiing and A Plus was much more fun than we expected. The facilities are basic as you would expect but location is good and Ian and his family who run the lodge are brilliant hosts.
The affordability and convenience.
Room is a bit small.
Ian the host was excellent and very helpful with information about where to go and what to do. Lovely roaring fire to keep warm by. Location close to mountains, lakes, walking etc. good kitchen facilities and lots of hot water for a shower. Room comfortable.
The smell of damp in the bedroom.
The staff was friendly and very helpful and they gave us tips as to sites to see and even offered to lend us ski equipment. We felt at home.
Very friendly owner cheers
Probably a little more dry toilet.
Good price, The owner is very nice and willing to help.
Willing not properly.
Ian is such an amazing guy, he picked us up 45 kms away because our car was in an accident, He really cares about his guests. The other backpackers are very friendly, good location when skiing at whakapapa, only 30-40 mins drive away, really easy to get to :) Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.
