The place was not nice, it had a lot of smell and everything was old

The staff were friendly and location was good, only 10 min walk from Queens Street. The walls were thin and I was kept awake but a couple having a domestic for four nights in a row. There was no way of locking the lockers in the rooms. A single power point in a room for four people was hanging from the wall by the wires only. One shower had a lock missing and there was a patch of permanently wet carpet outside the mens toilets. Would only stay here again if there were no other options.

This hostel is about a ten to fifteen minute walk out of down town. It's really old and because of that not very clean or well maintained. There are much better in the downtown area. I was kept up till about 3am on the Friday night I stayed as I was close to the fire exit/smoking balcony/drinking hangout. So there is atmosphere if that's what your after. Saying that, the manager did hold a parking spot out side for me when I called because I couldn't find the hostel.

Serious lack of cutlery and utensils, sheets were dirty, the lockers had no lock mechanism so were useless (other rooms worked). Atmosphere was killed by a group of long termers that had decided to make the hostel theirs and so lots of noise and mess from their all night parties.

Clean and nice, but sad and boring atmosphere. Good enough for short stopover.

Although this hostel wasn't the cleanest, the staff made up for it! Kitchen and bathrooms cleaned daily but young backpackers would leave their mess (can't blame the hostel for that!) kebede and Lin from reception were the friendliest people ever and always happy to help - can't rate them high enough :) I met some lovely people here but would have liked an oven and maybe the lockers in the rooms to have worked! Wifi was fab and location is close to cbd :)

Noise, noise and more noise until 3am every night. Dirty toilets, unrespectful people, awful beds. Good kitchen.

If you're Spanish and you like to party then this hostel is for you. If you value sleep then it aint no good, friends. The bulk of the hostel dorms are literally joined onto the social room, so you can hear weird, spanish folk songs all night long. The lockers can also be ripped open by anybody weighing over 50 pounds as easily as you would open the door, the lock would just snap straight off. Good for if all the other CBD hostels are booked and you're heading out from Britomart Station.

We spent only one night at the Station Backpackers and We shared a 6 beds room. The bed was very comfy, the room clean and also quite big. They also have a small termal pool, perfect to end the day. Also the owner has been very friendly and welcoming with us. I can definetly raccomend it !!

Location, showers and wifi are excellent. Brilliant value for money. Kitchen a bit small on the level we stayed on. Overall was great and extended the stay a following week directly with them.
