We had a lovely stay at Tristan and Yoko's backpackers. It was lovely and warm, with a log burner that Tristan looked after while we were there. There was te and coffee avaliable and an amazing massage chair. We enjoyed our chats with Tristan. Would stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Spent 1 night with my family (2 adults, 13 &10yr old). Enjoyed our stay at this small backpackers. Family room with en-suite was clean and warm. Common areas welcoming. Even managed a family game of monopoly. Location was perfect - short walking distance to shops and thermal pool. Tristan was friendly giving us local information. Would definitely use again.
