During my week on Stewart Island I stayed at the wonderful BBH hostel Bunkers Backpackers. It was a really cosy place with friendly people and an awesome atmosphere. It’s quickly become one of my favourite hostels in New Zealand and I highly recommend it! Every once in a while one or two kaka birds would pay the hostel a visit. We just had to take a look at this cute and slightly clumsily walking native (and sadly endangered) parrot.
