This was my favourite hostel of the 25 or so I stayed in in NZ!
Each room in the hostel has an animal theme - sheep , elephant, cat, kiwi, tiger and so on.. The rooms are decorated with motifs, teddy-bears, curtains, bed clothes etc all incorporating the animal's image. I stayed in the elephant room - see the attached photo!
The hostel also is home to two beautiful cats and a large friendly husky dog!
