Descent hostel at a good location. A bit of a walk from the Intercity stop, but close to pretty much everything else. Nice breakfast and bar downstairs with pool. Rooms a bit small and beds very rocky and not too clean. Good toilets, showers. They close everything at 10(ish) till 1 pm for cleaning, which was annoying! Kitchen, all toilets, rooms and bar/reception, so really no place to be if you aren't going out for the day.

I enjoyed this facility, although the top bunks can be a little haphazard to get into and out of. Maybe a different set of steps to decrease chance of injury? Breakfast was simple, but that is to be expected. I would stay here again.

Always cleaned but sometimes not all things are removed from the room. Free breakfast though it's only cornflakes and toast. Free pool which can pass time and right by most sites to see. Staff were not very sociable and most people just stayed on their phones.

Everyone here was super friendly. Staff had maps of the city, hiking maps & were a mix of people from countries across the world. Located in the same building as Poolhouse Bar (discounts given @ bar). Yet, it is quiet upstairs, w/ a large kitchen with oven, microwave, huge fridge, a TV and lounge space in the same area. Dorm rooms are clean & have ample lighting. BBQ & lounge tables overlooking & close to the city- BEAUTIFUL! Showers are in a group room, but each has a separate enclosure.

Overall the hostel was good. Very good location and atmosphere. The free pool tables was a unexpected plus. The kitchen was a bit small, very cramped at breakfast- although it was free. The plugs were annoying, you have to activate them every hour, and the USB portals were limited. The free word was small, but more vouchers were easy to get. The beds were v comfy and showers were good.

Very good kitchen and lounge facilities. Electricity sockets have a button which allows you to have 1 hour of electricity - bit annoying for overnight phone charging. Wifi is really good - free, fast and no limits (rare in NZ). Night atmosphere, easy to meet other travellers. Great location close to the city centre.
