  • Descripción


    We operate a small backpackers hostel in Murchison, also a restaurant/pizzeria.
    We (Phil & Ali) came to Murchison 10 years ago, and are very happily settled in this wonderful rural town.
    The hostel has a very good reputation as a warm, friendly and inviting place to stay. With only 18 beds when full, it's more like a large family home.

    If you have any particular skills, we'll see what we can do to give you an opportunity to show off your talent!
    We generally ask for 3 hours per day 5 days per week, these hours will differ daily, mainly morning maintenance & cleaning/gardening duties.

    There are many short walks within the immediate township.
    Murchison is situated 120km south of Nelson, and just 40 minute drive to Nelson Lakes National Park. Westport (the gateway town to to the West Coast) is 100km to the west.
    The bus stop is just across the road from our hostel making it easily reachable for those using public transport. Murchison is a great place to relax, catch up with your studies, or maybe read that book that you've been meaning to read for so long!
