Liked: Very friendly and helpful owner who is knowledgeable both about Hanmer area and other places in NZ. Homely, cosy hostel and very clean, well-equipped spotless kitchen. Free fruit and ice cream, as well as the usual hot drinks and herbs/ spices. Friendly resident cat.

Disliked: It's small so you do hear your fellow guests moving around which is not ideal at 7am! Bed a bit too soft
