        It would be nice if room outside has its own toilet and bath so that it don't need to go out to go to the toilet or have shower in late night.

        Overnight stay after the Springs”

        I chose to stay overnight mainly for convenience and for its reasonable price, as I had a late booking on Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools. It was even better than I expected. The hostel is small so it feels more familiar, also the host was very welcoming. I slept on the 4-bed room (all singles, not bunks, which is great), decently sized and comfy. A little bit cold at night but there's an electric portable heater. The kitchen is very spacious with all the utensils you need, free coffee and tea and you might even be lucky to have free bakery from the local store! There's also a living room with sofas and armchairs to chill by the fireplace. An overall awesome experience, I'd definitely recommend staying here!

        Well organized, and super tidy and clean kitchen facilities. Nice layout for the whole hostel. Only complaint, and it's a common one for many hostels, is the lack of soundproofing between rooms. Our room shared a wall with the toilets and it was like the toilets were actually in our room.

        great value and great staff”

        Was welcomed by a very friendly manager who was very accommodating, offering additional mattresses as we were travelling with a baby. Room itself was spacious and pretty clean (save for a couple of stains on curtains). Ensuite was spotless, though toilet was dripping throughout the night. Overall- if you’re spending time in Hanmer Springs and are looking for a bit of community and good value- I don’t think you can beat this place- we’ll certainly be back.
