Although this is a wee 15min walk from town centre, this place is definitely great value. Rooms nice clean and tidy. Staff were friendly. Highly recommend this place! Shared kitchen was nice and roomy with a nice dinning area for all backpackers!

Stopped for 1 night as part of our tour round South Island! Excellent location, close to town, friendly and good facilities! Clean and tidy. Whilst there visited the thermal pools which were a short walk, Would definitely recommend !

Great budget backpackers in Hanmer. Lovely lounge area with a fire and kitchen is spacious enough and well laid out. Room was cold and took a while to heat up. Bedding was very thin from overuse and the walls were pretty thin too. Good value...More
