The bathroom was really windy inside, and the shower was maximum warm, instead of hot. The room was really cold as well, but the blankets were ok. I didn't liked the way that the staff got in to my room while I was sleep sleeping, just to say that was almost time to check out.

Backpackers Central Hamilton is a handy pace to stop over - I came off the Northern Explorer train for a side trip to Hobbiton. Rocky Horror Show state in town and river walks with rowers going by. Thisback packers is central, friendly and good value. Some rooms don't have windows.

The windows had been left open (in winter) so our room was freezing when we got there. There was no heating. We froze till morning. one of the curtains was broken and we had a lot of light coming in all throught the night. Office was unattended and when we called them, they were slow to come to the reception. The kitchen and the common areas were quite clean. The bathrooms were reasonably clean. The beds were comfortable. It was quite easy to get around the city from the hostle.

The dude on reception is abit of a nobhead. But the blonde girl is really sweet and helpful and not a bad sight for sore eyes. Good that they offer free breakfast and wifi in rooms but it's just not that nice of a place and definitely not worth what they charge.

Pretty standard hostel. I stayed over a long weekend for one night, so it got the job done.

Stayed there for cricket, close to the stadium, so a big plus. Our side of the dorm had no windows, so sometimes it felt stuffy. Had lockers in the room. Co-ed bathrooms which were reasonably clean.

We appreciated the breakfast and the use of a fridge in the room.
