Was welcomed by name by pleasant owner. Lovely old house in convenient location. Would use again but request room with en suite. Mine was adequate but in outside wing. No breakfast provided.

Lovely old villa hostel

Pros: The whole atmosphere. Friendly, good communal areas.
Cons: The shower could be updated but the rest of the bathroom was good.
Location: Kowhai Park just across the river is perfect for kids. Victoria Lake has a good free free-flight aviary and a nice walkway.
Welcoming and helpful staff/owners. We stayed in a budget family room which had comfortable beds with good heating. The kids loved playing with the dogs and cat in the garden. As they didn't have many guests they let us have their 'bed and breakfast ' breakfast in the main villa dining room, complete with silverware and china. It was absolutely delicious. I looked into the backpackers rooms and they looked just as clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.
