Staff were laughable, room was very small, location was great and the kitchen area was quite nice, tried to charge for duvet despite it being included.
It is a very good hostel, if you wish to live in the city part of Tauranga. You will need to drive yourself to the Mount. Also, there are no lockers for your suitcase, but I did not see that in any rooms in NZ:
Good Hostel in general. Uncomfortable beds. I've been in a female dorm with bathroom ensuite and that's a very good thing to have in mind. Nice view from kitchen and eat area.

Excellent location, Internet is not free and the Dorms are very packed. Full of loud Germans
Centrally located. Great view to the ocean and to the street. Could improve on the service and cleanness of the dorms, the kitchen and the bathroom.
Great hostel right on the bay and above a lot of bars and restaurants. Wifi is provided by the town not the hostel, so won't necessarily reach your room. Roof terrace is great, again overlooking the bay, and loads of space.
The emplacement was perfect. My room on the top is like I was in a studio with my kitchen I could share with others persons. The must was the staff, the lady at the front desk was helpful, gave me some advice... She was great, thanks !!!
