  • Beschreibung


    We are a couple in our 30s managing a small cosy backpackers hostel in Murchison, and also a busy bar/restaurant and pizzeria.
    The hostel has a very good reputation as a warm, friendly and inviting place to stay. With only 19 beds when full, it's more like a large family home. We get a lot of people passing through doing some of the major bike routes in the South Island as well as tramping.
    The town is well renowned for being the home of white water rafting in NZ and is ideally situated on the four rivers plain.
    The restaurant has established quite a good reputation over the years and is popular with both locals and travellers alike. Our menu is always changing but we offer pizzas as our backbone! When the restaurant is busy it has a great buzz and is a really fun environment to work in.
    We are looking to get some vegetables going now spring is coming, and also some chickens. On the property you will already find Ella the cat dozing in the sunshine or running up trees.
    We are also in the process of building a large deck area in the garden to host live music in the summer months.
    There’s always jobs to do between both businesses and being that Murchison boasts so many warm sunny days there’s always the garden to get stuck into.
