average hostel, smells from the kitchen were in the bedroom too which was not very pleasant
This is a really nice homely feeling hostel. Our biggest issue was not having lockers in the dorm, especially as the room itself does not have a lock on it. The kitchen is very clean and is well stocked with all the pans, utensils, crockery etc that you need. The bathrooms are clean and the showers are really good. It is in a good location only a short walk to the city centre. The wifi is also good and works well throughout the hostel (we were given 1gb each for our stay, plenty for 2 nights).
Really a cool place to stay. Friendly staff, 12 bed dorm didn't feel so crowded because room was huge, heaps of free wifi when you check in, and overall pretty clean. Security is a little lacking with only locks on the main door, but didn't really feel like we needed anymore. Only negative was having so few bathrooms, only one for the whole house. But its understandable being an older place. Overall really great and would recommend to others.
What an amazing time! Thank you for your hospitality. Looking forward to see you guys again.

I was lucky to get a non bunkbed. With many guests it would be good with more showers and bathrooms. I understand the house is old, so not so many plugs and cold at night. But still a nice hostel, and good if you travel with nakedbus.
Stuff is awesome for first and place was easy to find in peaceful street near city centre! Room we stayed in was huge but still most silent one we stayed in, even that it was full of people 20 something and bed was most comfortable on all 19 hostels I stayed in on my trip!!! BED IS THE BEST ONE! Dunedin as a city was boring on sunday evening and scary empty!
Pretty nice overall. The employees were super friendly. Loved the atmosphere. The building itself is beautiful.

I stayed in the Tomlinson House which was a very dreary place compared to Manor House which just had better kitchens and bathrooms. Decor like my great grandmas house. Wi Fi was s***. Security needs improving. But the staff (particularly the man with glasses and a shaved head) were very helpful - even carried my luggage to my room. TV room is a good place to meet ppl. Kitchen is nice in Manor house.
Hostel is in a pretty cool looking house. We stayed in a house separate from reception (only next door) in a 12 bed dorm. The dorms themselves were clean but the bathroom - there was only 2 in the entire house - were terrible. The showers were old and dirty and for that many people it's not enough. There were three kitchens though which was great and the common room was nice. Location is close to city centre.
Nice hostel, about 10 min to the octagon by foot. The rooms are located on a really nicely renewed old house... Had a lot of space in the Doorm. Really comfortable atmosphere and clean rooms! Free parking! Was just perfect! Cheers!
