Facilities didn't seem very clean and from the room I could hear everything that happened in the kitchen as well as the people going up and down the stairs. Pillows and mattresses were not comfortable. The lady who welcomed us was the previous owner. She was very nice and the only staff we saw. No staff present for the checkout.
Good location, and friendly person at reception for our check in, but the place definitely could do with a good cleaning... It was also very noisy all through the night, between people running up and down the stairs at all hours, speaking at the top of their voice even in the middle of the night, and kitchen drawers being shut right in our bedroom wall... Next we stay in the Coromandel, we'll definitely try another place.

Most expensive hostel we stayed at in NZ, but also the worst... Kitchen was grubby, beds were damp and sandy, and we were the only people staying there. General facilities were decent enough tho. The staff were nice and helpful, but it did feel like we were staying at their house which was weird. It has potential but needs a lot of work doing to it. The owner did say they were selling up soon so that could explain the mess. Hopefully new owners will do it up to its potential!
Owner was sweet, not the best place but not too bad to stay if you've got nowhere else
