It could be the best place I ever stayed in NZ if it has hot water for shower at 8 o'clock in the evening.

WiFi was intermittent. Everything else was fine.

Hostel was relatively clean however lots of backpackers didn't appear to clean up after themselves so staff had to wash lots of dishes and clean surfaces which took a long time and probably stopped them being able to do other things. Showers are bad and were tepid at best - no matter what time of day you showered. The internet is also rubbish and does not work. We asked and we were told that if nobody is in the hostel and you are lucky it works. Rooms are basic and beds are way too soft.

The room smelt like cigarette smoke, there was no hot water. The curtains didn't block out the outside light

Wifi rarely worked. The food at the restaurant attached to the hostel next door came highly recommended to us but it was not good, however the staff were nice. The staff at the hostel were not as helpful however.

Great hostel, one of the best I've ever been. The free soup was amazing after the long days of walking. Only the wifi was kind of hard to use, wasn't working all the time.

Our booking was cancelled with no attempt made at contacting me. This hostel re-booked us at another place and arranged for them to match the agreed price, but this does not change the fact that they (to their admission) did not even attempt to let us know in advance. The staff member who advised us failed to provide a satisfactory explanation, let alone a genuine apology.
