There is no free Wifi, and they sell 1 day Wifi pass for NZ$5. I stayed at the twin bed private dorm, and it was very small. The common toilet, however, is very clean and the hot water is sufficiently hot. There is also a heated pool, which I didn't use as it was Winter.

Nice quiet place to stay, great that it had a hot pool to soak in in the evening, some staff were friendly and helpful, others not so much could have been a little more helpful. Got a "twin double room" extremely small the single beds were practically touching rooms were not spacious at all.

Really poor hostel with run down facilities. The room was very small and really hot. There was no fan to cool you down and if you wanted to leave the window open, then you had to settle for hundreds of flies in your room coming in from the bright light outside. Furniture in common room was all broken. The pictures of the hostel and rooms do not come close to what it is actually like. Do not stay here. Grim. Filth.

It is a really nice place! The beds are nice and soft,and you dont have to queue for showers and toilets. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Without a car, it was a bit far into the center - but just a brisk walk (2k to the supermarket). The swimmingpool was wonderful. Only downside, was that the cafe closed one of the evenings cause there weren´t enough people..
