"First thing first. The staff was friendly, and was very helpful booking the blue penguin tour tickets for us. The location was acceptable, and we could quickly drove to the town center and the blue penguin observatory. That's pretty much the good side I would say about this place. The "deluxe" room was a bit small, and we could especially feel the pressure when we travelled with lots of belongings. In addition, they only provided soaps by default, and no shampoo at all. Never mind, because they didn't have a hair dryer in room either, so we could save our work washing our hairs. Anyway, if you just come here with your own camping car, you'll probably be happy, especially because they have the Oamaru Garden right next to their site. However, if you're looking for a warm comfortable place after hanging around the city all day long, you should go somewhere else."

"When we arrived there was a problem with our booking which was immediately sorted by the staff finding alternative accommodation in the town centre. We were welcomed back the following day with chocolates and wine as compensation. The staff could not have been more apologetic or contrite;they did all they could to make us welcome. The room was large, well furnished, clean and well equipped. It has a restaurant and bar attached with a very good and reasonably priced menu. Whilst being about two kilometres from the town centre it was on the main road through and easy to find. Driving in and parking w ere no problem. There was a supermarket and several cafes and eateries closeby. I would have no hesitation in re booking."

"when booking I had thought it was overpriced for Oamaru - but when I checked in I was extremely pleased with the sizable space and facilities. The host provided a basket of home baked muffins upon check-in. and was a great source of information regarding the penguin shows."

"I've been traveling around New Zealand for two months and so far, this is my favourite hostel. It's small and feels likd home, staff is really friendly, morning sunrise views from the large windows are fabulous. And there's breakfast! Everything is clean and tidy and the dormroom has the best pod bunks I've seen - they're made of sturdy wood, so they make no noise and look great too. Every pod has a curtain, a light and a usb-charging station. The only downsides were that the lounge is very cold (it was the end of autumn) and the front door was usually unlocked. Since the dormroom isn't locked, it's a potential security issue. Then again there are lockers for valuables and since this place is very small, you'll recognise every face."
