OUR WELCOMING CULTURE

Much of the signage around our hostel is in Māori. This is to encourage you, our travellers, to explore Māori language, and also as a reminder to ourselves of our commitment to the traditional Māori value manaakitanga. This is the act of hospitality where guests arrive as manuhiri (visitors) and leave as whānau (family).
