Our backpacker lodge is warm and welcoming and our hotel like accommodation offers open fires, quiet lounges, great music, fully equipped kitchens and wonderful balconies for those famous West coast sunsets.

All of the beds are fully made up with sheets and duvets.

The lodge boasts a very large free video selection (for those odd wet days), its own book exchange and free Spa Pool. The kitchens are fully equipped as well as free tea, sugar and herbs.

Our rooms vary from Single rooms with T.V to six bed share rooms, double /twin rooms with and without en-suite and t.v., to family style rooms complete with ensuite , kitchens, video and t.v.

Most of our rooms are four share, and during the summer we have limited amount of camping spaces. Of course we also have a fully compliant disabled unit.

Currently we have three internet terminals, as well as Bike Hire and genuine backpacker information. We can give you reliable info on local walks, Glacier Walks, as well as the more adventurous activities and we can help you book them all.

Bit of a mix-up upon arrival with our double room - receptionist claimed that i had booked a twin but when i checked my email, that was not the case. Otherwise the facilities were pretty darn good!.

The bed sheet ( in the single room ) was found woman's long hair and was not clean as like washed laundry. The other are all good within standard.

Perfect place for our family of 5 (parents, 3 young adults) - with its well equipped kitchenette and own bathroom. Manager/host was very friendly. Easy access to hiking trails. Highly recommend.
