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.

... home for the next 2.5 days. It was a DARLING little cabin in the woods, with a little front porch. Inside, we were thrilled to find a massive bed,.....pull out sofa, kitchen (with all the amenities) electric heater, TV, AND wood stove (with wood cut). The private bathroom was large with a big jacuzzi tub. We were sooooo excited. You really have to stay in hostels or YMCA's for a few nights to 'truly' appreciate a nice place to stay. Adrienne gets colder than I ...

... stunning. It was so nice to have a full kitchen to cook proper meals, and cookies! Through Ann, we were connected with Tim and Heidi at French Peaks winery just a 15 minute drive from the house. We can actually see the vineyard from the living room. While Tim didn't have much work for us, we were able to work the tasting room one day, and help out taking down nets from the vineyard. Mostly we jut enjoyed the company and food with our ...

We breakfasted at C One, a trendy cafe frequented by cyclists. There was rather too much Lycra for me, first thing in the morning! We walked up to Cashel Street, where there was a container village of shops and cafés, and a lot more life than the evening before. We went into the Re:START Quake City exhibition, which told you about the destructive days of September 2010 and February 2011. Listening to personal accounts ...

... the hostel and I was very ready for a power nap. We passed an art gallery. There were only a few pieces on display, the curator inside explained to us that the gallery is still being rebuilt and they have a couple of buildings that are currently bring used for some exhibitions. He also told us that none of their art was destroyed by the earthquake just the building. In the evening we mixed it up with the very youthful backpackers, we used the kitchen with several other ...

Christchurch to Kaikoura

A travel blog entry by laracamille on Nov 12, 2013

Had another early start today but it wasn't too hard getting up, walked to the bus stop and met a lovely girl called Beth from Suffolk and it was her first day on the bus too and her first time travelling alone so as if by magic we became friends! The bus journey wasn't too long luckily and when we arrived in Kaikoura we went to the point where you could see over the ...
