Had a great stay, only left beccause they were full! Free internet is huge in NZ so that was a treat. Location right by Mt. Eden is nice, but I got tired of doing the 30 minute walk into the city center each day. Bathrooms nice and clean, as well as the rooms. People are not super social but if you try people are friendly. Kitchen nice and has tons of spices!
Room was clean, came with a balcony which was pretty cool for a hostel. Really nice living room/chill out areas. Kitchen is big and really well stocked.
Well situated away from the centre of town. Easy access by bus and with the bonus of a free car park. Two different managers while I was there, one helpful, one not so. I had an ensuite in a cabin at the back. Clean and comfortable but safety issue with access. The path to where the units were was never lit and really dark. The cabins are raised on wooden decking with a drop to the ground and a gap bridged by some timber. Very easy to fall. Kitchen often dirty in morning.
Not routinely cleaned during the day, no permanent staff to maintain the place. Not enough space to sit in the lounge. No space to prepare and cook. Too many people and not enough facilities. Our room had two bunk beds and was barely big enough accommodate one.
