  • Only the second clean kitchen out of the 35 New Zealand hostels I have visited in the past four months. A reflection, not on the other hostels, but on certain idle, selfish, immature hostellers who refuse to clear up after themselves.

  • This is a great little house in a wonderful, tucked away court. It is quiet, but there is a little shortcut down to the main street, so it is in a wonderful location! The garden in the back is beautiful and has a hot tub and hammock. Helen is very kind. The house is so cozy, very clean, but not sterile, and has comfy couches next to a fireplace that Helen lights at night. There is a little house cat named Red who is very sweet.
