There are hostels which are just basic and you know what to expect. Then there are those that are just overwhelming: clean, tidy, friendly... all those things. And then there those that just don't care and still charge you the average hostel price or even more. For me LL was the latter. Lots of beds in small rooms, small kitchen, rather filthy. The house has a lot of potential. But it needs people to look after it and invest some love. It's okay for a night or two. But dont expect to feel @home.
Nice place! A little bit out of the way, but not a bad walk to get there. Would stay here again!
Great location for French market- a must do on the weekend and only 2 mins walk. Kiko the manager is lovely and very friendly and hard working. The rooms are overcrowded 8 beds and not enough floor space for 8 people's bags. Small lockers in room for valuables. Showers hot and good power. Kitchen tiny - suggest eat in Parnell. Whole place needs a coat of paint and a few less beds. Would not recommend
Great hostel, would stay there again as good value for money. Also one of the few places with free wi fi (what's up with charging for wi if NZ?!). Location is good, quiet but near downtown. Kitchen and shower alright, good for price. The excellent fan tail adventures comes by there, would thoroughly recommended that. Nice and quiet hostel, laid back. Only gripe is the closed for lunch reception between 1 and 4. Annoying but for the price can live with it.
