Cute, sheltered hostel/campsite on a hill. Placed a bit off the beaten track, you arrive after a challenging drive, steep and winding. The hostel itself is small but looked cosy. We stayed on the campsite with full equiped kitchen. Unfortunatly the hill on which the tentsites are, is very steep. Sites are extremely small, only a little tent will fit. We had a wet couple of days, which resulted in puddles under the tent and a scary, slippery walk towards the toilets. On a nice day, the place will probably be much more enjoyed!

Sehr schön gelegener Campingplatz! Fahrt bis zum Platz selber etwas abenteuerlich (kleine Campers von Vorteil). Tolle Aussicht!
Schafe und Hühner laufen auf Campingplatz umher. 4 saubere Toileten. Warme Duschen. Nur 1 Kochherd in der Küche. Nettes Personal. Haben uns tolle Wanderungen vorgeschlagen. Würde sofort wieder gehen!!

Great views, facilities are excellent (washing machine, clean flushing toilets, hot showers, washing fine, equipped kitchen). Free WiFi (and if you reach your limit you can buy more for super cheap!). Add in the roaming farm animals and it makes for an awesome wee get away!

Perfect start in New Zealand for me travelling alone in a campervan (15 NZD). It is tricky to get there, but it is worth it. I stayed 2 nights there. If you like walkes/hiking, you can start directly from the camping ground. Toilette/hot shower was clean and free WiFi. There is also a washing machine (coins needed) and you can use the kitchen cooker.

Very nice place to stay. Friendly Staff, good and clean facilities, even a heater in the room. Wifi connection was bad in the rooms, but okay in common areas. We were offered free vegetables and fruits. However, it is a bit pricey. All in all a good stay.

Gorgeous view, the road is very narrow, ok for a small campervan only.
