Nice place, artistic decor, spacious and warm room, large and comfy common areas. Some more electric sockets in dorms would be useful. Wi-fi paid separately, not the fastest, not the most reliable, and quite expensive.

Thank you for your feedback - I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Ducks & Drakes and were warm now that the weather has turned colder. Unfortunately internet access in NZ is expensive, unlike Europe, and we pass on a small cost - from $2 for 30 minutes. I hope you enjoy the rest of your travels.

Ducks and Drakes is a really nice hostel which is furnished with love for detail! Unfortunately, the rooms, as well as the dining room and the kitchen were very cold, so you wouldn't want to spend too much time there. The atmosphere would be much better if it wasn't so chilly all the time.

Thank you for your comments - May was particularly cold however we have the fire in the guest lounge which is a popular spot to get cosy - all beds have extra blankets and hot-water bottles as well as heaters. Our Double and single rooms also have electric blankets. I'm sorry you felt it was chilly even with all our heating options.I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in New Zealand.
