Thank your your kind comments. We glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Safe traveling.


Great hostel in good location. Close to buses to city and supermarket. Kept clean by friendly staff and good facilities on site.


Great place to stay for a couple nights. The wifi wasn't worth the money, it didn't work outside of the door on the porch

We are happy you enjoyed the stay at our hostel we like to call home away from home. We have WFI full overage inside the hostel but as we have a large outside area, it may not be possible at some places. Safe travelling.


Really enjoying my stay here. A very homely feel to the place and some nice views from our balcony and the deck. Staff are very friendly and get along well with them socially. The hostels been more or less fully booked most of my time here, but there's always space in the kitchen or tv room to chill out. Would recommend, especially to those looking for a a extended stay.


stayed for 2 nights, a friend and I woke up with bites over the second night.

We clean the hostel so much that people sometimes say this is the cleanest hostel we have ever been to. The rooms are cleaned every time the guests check out or at least a few times in the week.


My room was located near the busy and noisy receptıon...bed was uncomfortable and sleep hard to get..so not happy about that....

We try our best but we can only help you if you can come and see us at the reception if you have a problem. We hope next time if you have a problem, you would please come and see us and we can put you into another room of your choice so that you are happy.


Very clean and tidy. Very quiet location and good to get a great nights sleep. It's thee only hostel that changes and makes your bed for you on a weekly basis that I've stayed at in the last 2 years - New Zealand/Australia. Great staff and a good opportunity to meet some great travelers/everybody was really friendly and made it home like. I'm very that I picked this hostel to stay at when in Auckland! :)
