      OK - if you need to stay in the city centre. It was boked for us by nakedbus. Friendly and efficient staff. Nice bar in the basement. Good kithcen facilities, though there were lots using it at the same time and many didn`t quite relly know how to clear up after themselves - e.g. whiping cookers and work surfaces.

      Was the worst Hostel so far on my trip. It's very noisy and dirty there. Especially the kitchen is the dirtiest I've seen here in NZ. If you are in Wellington go to the Trek Global. Way better...

      White water rafting

      After barely any sleep, the last thing I wanted to do this morning was to get up ridiculously early and go white water rafting! With a lot of effort I eventually managed to heave myself out of bed and meet up with everyone in the wooden lodge! We then went to get kitted up in thermals and wetsuits which are definitely the most attractive things I …

      Um 08:30 war für mich und noch 6 andere Tagwach. Wir wollten zum River Rafting. Die Basis war im Gebäude neben dem Hostel und so machten wir uns bereit. Mit dem Bus gings ein ganzes Stück den Fluss hoch. 3 Frauen und 4 Männer waren wir, sowie 2 Guides und 2 Boote. Für die Männer war sofort klar, dass sie keine Frauen an Board …

      I haven't written about New Zealand at all, mainly because I've been having the best time ever so haven't had any time to, so here goes:
      I arrived in Auckland to a massive temperature shock, I'd gone from nearly 40•C to around 5! In the airport a massive security man came up to me and started grilling me about where I was staying, if I …

      Hey Friends!


      Having left River Valley we firstly headed down towards Bulls, a town where everything is related to Bulls! The bins tell you to be response-a-bull, and the police station is full of consta-bulls!! We stopped for an ice cream and to laugh at the sign posts around the city before carrying onto Wellington where we arrived …

      After an active couple of days we were able to sleep on the bus all the way to river valley. River valley has lots and lots of scenic rolling hills and lots of sheep to go with it! We arrived by 2pm and unfortunately it was raining, and with no activities to do that day it meant everyone hung out at the hostel bar. The hostel also put on dinner for …
