The atmosphere of the hostel is great! They have slackline, a big yard.... It is close to the city, but not so close, which is good in my opinion, because we had to park the car everyday, and if the hostel was in the middle of the city we would have to pay. There is free soup every night, and that always helps. The staff is really friendly, and in the day we were supposed to arrive, we got stuck in one of the roads, and they didn't charge us for this night lost.
The staff is great, I was with a group of 12 people and no one had any complaints. The only fact that really called my attention is that the reception is not next to the door, so it is really easy for someone to enter in the hostel and use the facilities, and some of the rooms, including mine, were open all the time, so we were lucky. Also the windows are very low, and anyone can enter using them (one day when the lock of the door wasn't opening we had to enter in the room by the window)
The place is warm so that was good. It can just be noisy sometimes but I think that is expected in backpackers and it needs a bit more of tidying up especially in the kitchen.

We stayed for two nights in room outside, it was warm as had two heaters but there was something in the roof at night could have been a bird or squirrel, not sure, it didn't come into the room and staff did say they would investigate. GHD and hairdryers were a plus. Fridges need to be cleaned out and additional fridge would be good too.
Good atmosphere and free soup every night and the living room is really cosy ! Too bad the beds were bad and the dorm too small for 4.
Kia Ora all, you guys were awesome and you rock! Cheers for great stay
Multiple lights weren't working in the bathrooms/showers. The staff was unfriendly, unhelpful, and unprofessional with our requests for assistance. We booked one type of room weeks in advance only to be told we are to stay in another type due to a mistake by the staff, to our discomfort. I will never be booking or encouraging this hostel again. Terrible service, terrible lack of professionalism.
