The staff are really helpful, give you a walk through of the place when you check in and answer all questions. Place is really clean well kept. It is over a bar, but it seems like most of the noise/music comes from the restaurant area down the street especially if you're in a room facing the street. Only complaint is it gets really warm inside in the summer and there are no fans.

Good hostel. Bedroom sizes are large, clean, great kitchen etc. Had to pay a $10 late fee for check in which was not told until upon arrival so made hostel $35 total which is a lot for staying less than 12 hours

Granted this is from a specific situation - the owner was away and left someone else in chrge of the hostel. That man was drunk and harrassing women the entire time. When the owner arrived and we told him he had an appropriate response of disgust and fired the worker. He apologized to us as well, however, I missed out on Waitomo caves because the worker was too drunk to book it, i watched women be harrassed, and I feel that these things are appalling and "sorry" is not really good enough for me.

A very nice hostel. The location is so central and many things is walking distance. The staff was alright but nothing fancy. Nice stay.

It was a good place to stay a week. It was quite empty, so the days and evenings were quiet.
