Definitely one of the best backpacker i ever stayed in. After 2 weeks of amazing Fiji i had to go back to bloody cold NZ. But Chester`s made my heart feel warm again. Staff is really friendly and helpful if you have any desires! The lovely cat ( i forgot the name) is too fat though :-)! The fact that you can buy and sell campervans for reasonable prices is pretty good! So if you start your travels through NZ here, you probably won`t get a van cheaper and/or better maintained! Anthony is doing good work.... recommend it totally

Overall a very good hostel, clean and tidy (better than home). Sunny outside dining area, good kitchen facilities! As said small common room and in the same room as the kitchen! Free Internet ! But if you stop in kaikoura, plan you stop here!

Well, i stayed here from june 21 until july the 2nd! A long time on an Island you`re able to walk round in 40 minutes! You will become a little robinson for sure! The beach and all the corals and exotic fishes are incredibly stunning! There`s just one accomodation on the island run by a fijian family! If you stay there prepare for eating fish everyday, as there is no other possibility to eat! The owners are very kind though! Possible activities are:" swimming, snorkeling, hiking, tanning ;-) and havin a good time with your friends! So my conclusion.. If you`re a person who likes to have peace, no masses of people just relaxin then this is YOUR Island! PS: there is a plane wreck from the 2nd worldwar in the water you can explore :-)
