Customer Feedback

We were greeted at reception by the very friendly and welcoming hostel owner Matt. The facilities were very good, including a large kitchen, and the quick guided tour was very helpful. The room was spacious and very reasonable, for the price. The highlight was meeting baby Bella, the owners very own Bambi. Highly recommended hostel. Thank you.

Das 42b College ist ein absoluter Geheimtipp in Whanganui! Sehr sehr schönes Hostel mit großer Küche Free-Wifi und die deutschen Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und relaxed. Haben sogar ein kostenloses Upgrade vom Double Room zur Family Suite bekommen.
Ich werde dieses Hostel jedem empfehlen. Vielen Dank!

Le propriétaire est très sympathique, donne de bons conseils sur les attractions à voir dans les alentours.
L’établissement est très bien équipé, une pièce avec des instruments de musique, billard et ping-pong gratuit… Il y a un grand jardin, la cuisine est grande et fonctionnelle, il y a tout ce dont vous avez besoin. On a aussi choisi cette établissement car il y a un parking gratuit et on est à 5 min à pied du centre ville.

I spent two nights at 42b college house and was impressed by the cleanliness and the facilities available! Had a view of the snowy mountain and a great outdoor area to relax in. Very friendly staff with good knowledge of Wanganui to help with planning my trip.
