Tour desk was excellent. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful
Tour desk is first-rate
Cosy, a great atmosphere and lovely home away from home.
Amazing and friendly hostel, really helpful staff. Large clean communal kitchen and BBQ area. Would recommend and definetley stay again!!
The staff were brilliant and really helpful and friendly. Kitchen and bathrooms were both immaculate and it was nice having en-suit in all the dorms. The hostel had a really nice atmosphere although was very noisy at night (ear-plugs needed!!). We felt security was not great though and did not feel out stuff was secure. No lockers in dorm (although common to NZ), and door permanently left open. Also having to pay for wifi in this day and age is daft!
Pretty good hostel overall but with two flaws: 1. REALLY loud at night. Not from the hostel but from Base just across the street... and that's every night 'til 2 am... 2. Quite far from the supermarket, though there are a smaller supermarket (more expensive) less than a km away and a convenience store (even more expensive) on the same street. The hostel is actually really good if it wasn't for the noise from across the street. So buy ear plugs at the dollar store in town!
Rosey on reception was a gem. Full of helpful information about the area and tours.
