I only spent one night here, but I loved it. Clean, quiet and free breakfast and tea and coffee and lovely owners. They have banana cake and biscuits you can buy which go to a good cause. Also close to main centre of town.Highly recommend.

Cozy hostel with good atmosphere. Nice big rooms, lovely lady that runs the hostel and a kitchen that invites you to cook. Cozy porch for eating breakfast in the sun. Good info about hiking tracks. Free muesli and cereal for breakfast.

If you tell them beforehand when you'll be turning up, they can meet you. I believe they can give you a key to the room if the bed is not ready, but it would be best to call them or email them first to confirm that.
