Important Covid-19 Update:
New Zealand will be at a level 4 alert from 25 March for four weeks.This means everyone, except for those working in essential services, are on lockdown and isolation for four weeks. Including travellers. As such, we have removed the option for booking accommodation via our website. If you need accommodation for this period please contact the hostel directly and discuss your requirement with the Hostel Manager on site.

Bookings have also been closed for a further two weeks until we understand whether that lockdown period will be extended. Cancellation requests can be made here.
