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.

I only stayed in Hamilton briefly but this was a really nice hostel with excellent facilities and friendly staff.

Stuffy and cramped rooms and kitchen common area with no windows. Unfriendly staff, limited internet access. Good for one night but not more.

Thank-you for your thoughts. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay by the looks of things. Were the staff unfriendly?? How can we make things better for you??

I had a room with a private bathroom. Sink and toilet were clean, but the floor hadn't been swept in quite some time. There was hair all over the place, it was pretty nasty. The carpet hadn't been vacuumed either. The next day after checking out I had little welts or bites all over my body so I'm thinking the sheets hadn't been changed either. Guess this room was "missed" by the cleaner.

Nice hostel in the middle of cowtown (hamilton) comfy beds and ok sized rooms, plenty showers and toilets. Staff fruendly and helpful, nice large kitchen and common area with digital tv and DVDs to rent. One snag is zero alcohol policy but even saying that's its a very minor problem. Would stay here again
