      The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
      The kitchen is pretty small and basic, but then again the hostel itself can't accommodate many, so it's probably never too busy.
      Loved our stay here.

      ... Craft Station”. We stop there as we circled the Akaroa Harbor on our way to Christchurch. We got a cup of coffee, a flat white, and tea from next store and headed back to the souvenir shop. There was an old iron pot in front used to render whale blubber in the heyday of whaling. While walking through the shop, I found a room turned into a war memorial. Among other things, was a large picture frame, entitled “Roll of Honor, Little River ...

Being the good new wife I am I parked up the van and got straight on and cooked my poorly husbands tea- very much hoping the lemsips have kicked in by tomorrow! Didn't feel like a very productive day today but thinking back, it's not everyday you get to eat breakfast on the beach watching seals play. Today's pear count: Gillie 4 Tom ...

      ... Potter in the tv room with the rest of the people from the bus before getting into bed. The guy on the bottom bunk of one of our beds got scared with all our scary stories we had heard whilst travelling and was kicking Jens mattress up which was so funny to see. Friday we got a bit of a lie in which was nice as we weren't getting back on the Kiwi bus. We went out in the rain to get food and ended up going to the 'Why not cafe'. Beth and Nicola got waffles ...

This is our worst storm in 50 years the Kiwis perkily told us. We had planned to stock up on fuel for the stove, food and head out backpacking.
