This is a fantastic hostel. The staff is very helpful and friendly. great big kitchen with lots of space. I had an incredible stay. highly recommend!!


The hostel does not provide adequate facilities to those who need a quiet place to work. The car park is poorly arranged.

Thanks for your review. We are a busy hostel, not a party hostel. You booked a dorm room in June (our quietest month!), even though we do have other rooms if you were needing privacy. Sorry that you felt our internet cafe was not suitable for your work, we do offer WIFI in which you could have chosen to use a laptop in a part of the hostel with less visitors. Our records indicate only a few cars were onsite the nights you stayed with us, so at least 10 spare spaces were free! Regards, Brooke


Overall it was okay, kitchen was nice, room was tidy and clean. However the bathrooms were a little dirty and smelled like puke in the morning. Read in the lonely planet that it's a nice place where the staff makes sure that people are being quiet after 11pm. But the staff was still celebrating with the guests at 3 am. Also there was a really annoying electric garage door which went up and down all night whenever someone passed it. So I recommend ear plugs if you wish to sleep in this hostel.

Thanks for your review. Our night warden does control the noise after 11pm, & our cleaners for accommodation are treated just like any other guest. Sorry that the bathrooms were not acceptable - our cleaners do start at 7.30am to freshen the facilities & unfortunately one of our guests had food poisoning the night before! The electric garage door is obviously the neighbours - of which you are the first to mention it! We'll look into fixing that issue now you have made us aware! Enjoy NZ!
