The Lion's Den hostel is a very small hostel run by a very friendly owner who treats everyone like family. This hostel has a personable environment. When you first arrive, you see brightly colored walls and unique sculptures. You feel right at home in this hostel which has themed bedrooms, a courtyard, living room, kitchen, and bathrooms.
Everyone at the Lion's Den is relaxed and happy. You can spend your time swinging in the hammock over the small stream or if the weather is poor you can simply enjoy the cozy common room. The owner may even make the guests a special meal during their stay.
Lion's Den is conveniently located within walking distance of central Coromandel town. It is at the edge of the town on the way to the Driving Creek Railway. The owner is quick to offer up suggestions of what to do in the area and will do anything she can to make her guests feel at home.
This hostel is also very clean. It is kept up nicely and has all the amenities one might need for any length of stay, including a fully equipped kitchen and laundry (available for a small price). The hostel is very reasonably priced and provides relative privacy. Even the dorm rooms only have five beds in them. There are also tent sites available for those who choose to sleep outside.
