A very nice place, friendly staff, free internet, nice room with sofas and a great view. The best option in town.
Absolutely loved this place! Awesome staff, great rooms (I slept in a dorm with 4 beds) with very nice mattresses (comfy!), nice communal living room and large kitchen. This hostel does everything right and is very centrally located! Can recommend it to everyone and was the best hostel of my New Zealand trip!

Worn out tiny 2x bunk female dorm. Fortunately there were only 3 of us in there as there wuld have been no where near enough room for a 4th person. Whole in shower door filled with a bit of paper. No hooks to hang clothes. Lounge is a nice communal area. Regularly cleaned hostel
I really loved this little hostel! It is the nakedbus stop which is always handy! The staff were really helpful, letting me dump my bag without checking in to run to my whale watch tour. When I did check in they spent plenty of time chatting to me showing me what was what. Generally had a nice feel to it with everyone chatting in the kitchen and living room, everything was clean enough and decent facilities, wish I had been able to stay longer.
Nice hostel right in centre of town and close to shops
Great Hostel, very clean, good facilities, very nice living room. Only thing to improve: no lockers.
Very nice hostel, beds were amazing!

Beautiful hostel, across from the busstop and close to the sea. Staff is amazing, free fast wifi and I loved the mural. Bed's are good as well.
A brilliant hostel!! My favourite place so far in New Zealand- comfortable beds in well kept rooms. Great location on the beach front with friendly staff! Free WIFI, tea and coffee. I would definitely recommend this place! Thanks to Craig, Maria and Gabriel for making my stay so memorable!
Great, clean hostel right on the main road. Helpful staff and nice facilities. Would definitely return!
Only stayed here for one night but I had a great stay and thought this was a cute little hostel! Keep up the good work! :)
Free unlimited wifi! Probably the one and only in whole New Zealand. ;) Terrace with magnificent view. Super friendly owner. Spotlessly clean. One of the best places I've ever stayed at. :)
had a 3 bed dorm to myself, but if there were 2 other ppl in there with their bags it would be very tight and is probably bit small if it were busy. free wifi, nice kitchen and chill out area and a nice balcony.
Stayed in the double room. Despite the wall that is your lookout for the window, this hostel is a decent price and unlike some other hostels they provide you with plenty of blankets and a decent heater for when it's cold. Central location too- our bus stopped right outside the place!
No lockers in the room, except of that perfect!
Great Hostel! Very central and very clean. Super friendly staff and very helpfull. Good big kitchen and good bathrooms. Good bedrooms. Would recommend it to anyone.
Fishtank is realy nice place. Comfy beds, cery clean and great unlimited free wifi. Its very well located the intercity bus stops in front of the hostel. I highly recommend staying here.
Had a great stay at the hostel. Dolphin swimming here is a must!
Great hostel with a perfect location, the buses (Atomic / Naked bus etc) drop you off right outside the door. Nice room and decent kitchen facilities inc free tea and coffee. Lovely balcony sun deck to sit out on too with an amazing view! One recommendation would be to have individual reading lights by each bed as it can be awkward when some people are trying to sleep with the main light on. Would definitely stay here again.
Really comfortable beds! Clean kitchen, free parking,good location
