Our self-service laundromat, Washatipu, is open from 9am to 9pm, and is available for guest and public use.
Please be aware that due to our own needs within the day-to-day operation of the hostel, we may have to shutdown access between the hours of 10am and 1pm during the busier times of the year. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but we would recommend to come in either before 9:30am and after 1pm to avoid any issues this might cause.
Laundry powder is available for $2 in the coin operated machine near the entry door – this will give you 2 washes, so please don’t put it in all at once! The machines themselves are 9KG front-load washers ($4 for approx. 25 mins) and dryers ($4 for approx. 45mins). The larger industrial machines are also available for use, however, are more expensive, and are only available once we have completed our loads for the day – between 4pm and 9pm is the best time to utilise these machines.
Whilst we can’t provide cash-out at reception (there are ATM’s within 50m however), we can swap notes for coins for you.
