Chez La Mer Akaroa Reviews
Preety in pink and warm and cosy Apr 05, 2011
Chez La Mer Backpackers is charming, historic and homely. The large private garden setting is an oasis for weary travelers. There are three well-equipped kitchens (free herbs and spices), a lounge, dining room and sun porch. We have a queen room, double rooms, twin rooms, a triple room, and five and four bed dorms.
I loved this hostel so much so that i decided to stay and work there for 6 weeks. The owners Roy and Sarah went back to the States for holidays and left a few other backpackers and myself incharge- such lovely people.
Everthing about ths hostel is chraming, warm and cosy. My fave spot was by the wood fireplace. I enjoyed ever bit of my entire stay.
