Good rating on most fronts. The showers could do with a touch up

Great hostel. Only 5min away from bus stop/ train station. Clean kitchen and nice rooms (with heater). But doors to rooms can't be locked

Please note: ALL rooms are lockable AND/OR have lockers. Guests having individual lockers in a shared room is much more secure than issuing a key to each person. Additionally, entry to the hostel is key-coded and there are CC cameras in common areas.

Even though the room was pretty small for a ten bed dorm I liked this hostel. Great atmosphere. Good location. Free wifi And it was working. Nice looking and clean facilities.

Staff wasn't very knowledgeable about traveling around Dunedin. Guy didn't even know there was a bus to Otago peninsula. If your running a hostel these are things you should know.

We paid for an 8 bed female dorm and had 9 people shoved and cramped into a tiny room. My sheets, pillowcase, and blankets were covered in stains and were not very clean. The room was a mess and smelled, and the main room smelled as well. Bathrooms were gross and small. Only security was the code on the front door and anyone could let someone in. No keys for any of the rooms or dorms. Almost chose to sleep in my car instead.

This place smells like stinky feet. I spent about two weeks traveling the south island and this place was easily the worst.

Brilliant Hostel!!! Right in the centre of Dunedin. Room was clean and spacious for 10 bed dorm. Atmosphere was relaxed but enjoyable and highlight was playing Jackbox on the PS4. Richard was really helpful and easy to talk to as well as the rest of the staff. If your looking to stay in Dunedin, STAY HERE!!! :)
