Excellent and affordable stay ★★★★★

Spent the night in one of the shared rooms. The set-up was very clean and everything was provided – hot water, heating, basic food and tea/coffee. The staff member was fantastic and extremely helpful. A tad far out of the CBD but there’s a bus stop right in front of the lodge.

Friendly, warm and comfy ★★★★★

A bit far from downtown, but quiet. A car would be an asset, as it’s not walking distance to the CBD. Very friendly and helpful staff, warm and cozy, with a wood stove in the common room. The lodge is on a side street (frontage) so a bit hard to find at night, for the first time. All in all, a good place to stay if you don’t want the noise of downtown, or the bar scene. Haka tours also operates from the lodge

Cosy and friendly accommodation! ★★★★★

Stayed here with my mate and it was so nice! That staff are very friendly and helpful. The facilities are so nice and the whole place has a cosy relaxing vibe to it. Pretty well priced and easy to find. Would definitely recommend 😁
