Liked: This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at in New Zealand - it's amazingly clean, the staff are knowledgeable and helpful, the location is central to everything, the kitchen is well-equipped and spacious, and again very clean, the free breakfast and tea and coffee are nice little additions, as is the free apple crumble every night! The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are nice and spacious; there are also plenty of bathroom facilities available so you never have to wait. There are so many positives about this hostel, I could go on...

Family Holiday

30 April 2013 katinka would recommend this property

Liked: we actually kinda 'crashed' here after a delayed interislander. we arrived in the dark. collected our rental car and only 400 meters further there was the VILLA backpackers. because of the dark we did not really see much of it. but this is what we DID notice: on walking distance a 4-square store. kitchen was rather good equiped. there was a jacuzzi (free) to be used untill 22.00 o.clock. there was a terras woodfurnace which gave the night a friendly and warm atmosphere. lots of guests sitting around it. on 20.00 there was a free apple crumble for all guests. (they rang a bell, and we - the guests - all lined up in a straight line. funny. felt like being part of a large family) and in the morning there was breakfast. (we did not take the breakfast, because we had to leave real early.) but the apple crumble (with 2 different icecream flavors to choose from) was hot and delicious! the room was small , but it had everything it needed: private toilet and good working shower. (no fighting to get the temperature of the water right) a small tv. and automatic lights that went on, if you walked in the dark. no chance of falling of a stairs. the whole lodge had a very warm and friendly look.

Disliked: disliked nothing.
