Great place to stay. Clean and the atmosphere was great (Best common room so far). Staff were friendly and very helpful (I'm looking at you Holy). The only problem was that the kitchen closes at 10:30pm, but I guess it adds to security. Would recommend to others.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your awesome feedback! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and felt welcomed by myself. It's also great to hear that you made use of our comfy common room. Unfortunately we do have to close the kitchen at night as it is a direct entrance to the building, so we do need to do this for security reasons. We hope to see you again in the not too distant future! :) Enjoy your NZ adventures. Cheers, Holly
