From $24

This small, traditional and homely hostel is located close to the Bushy Beach Scenic Reserve and just minutes from the town centre. Stay a few days in this friendly and welcoming hostel and experience all that Oamaru has to offer. Relax and unwind, have a BBQ in our garden in the Summer or watch TV in front of the log fire in the evenings during the Winter.

Oamaru is the place to see little Blue and Yellow Eyed penguins, both of which congregate within easy walking distance from the hostel. Oamaru has a magnificent collection of Victorian era white stone buildings, including a museum and art gallery. Browse the market or try a stream train, sample award winning cheeses or visit the Aquatic Centre and public gardens. Only 30 minutes drive to Moeraki Boulders and the Waitaki Valley - home to the "Vanished World" fossil trail.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The one thing this hostel is more than "cozy", is "tiny". Both the bedrooms and the living room felt really rather cramped. It's not a bad hostel at all, but on the other hand, I've stayed in much nicer (and more spacious!) hostels, so this one isn't ever going to be high up on my list of recommendations.
