Really good wifi. Spacious rooms. Good beds. Close to the bus stop.


Basic, no towels provided, kitchen small so got very busy

Actually we continually get comments that our kitchen is in the top 5 in NZ - that is why people like to use it :) But sorry to see we did not meet your expectation nonetheless :( Neil


Nice homey hostel. The single beds were a lovely change from bunk beds. Each bed also had hooks and a power outlet! Very clean and quiet at night. Highly recommended

Thanks for you comments - we are proud of our beds :) Neil


One of the best and definitely one of the cleanest hostels I ever stayed at! Very cozy and comfortable, great kitchen, nice beds (no bunks!), fantastic location, friendly staff. I only missed individual lights at each bed and lockers.
