    Hi Andy - I must say I delight in the way travellers et al are willing to help in my planning! Thanks to all. I'll email for the booking - I am a member of the UK YHA which I assume is international? Do the prices for a single room differ much across the two islands? and can I assume there are self-catering facilities in all of them? I am wondering how much NZ hostels differ from those in the UK Cheers

    Hi - as I am driving around for 4 weeks I think I would like to book a room for myself to make sure I get a good night's sleep!! - how much would this cost? Can I book direct at each YHA hostel rather than through online sites such as Expedia? I wonder which way of booking is best?
