The staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was awful, but not because of the Hostel. It was because of the people staying in the room. A total mess with clothes, food etc. and it smelled really bad. We were glad, that we could leave the next day.

very small and not well-stocked kitchen, a lot of long-term guests which make dorms unclean because their clothes are everywhere and it's hard to find quiet place.


Big "party" hostel with super-nice staff in a good spot near the center, but there was a problem: The areas in the hostel are color-coded to your keycard. It's like an orwellian nightmare when your friend is staying in a different colored zone and you can't go knocking on their door (have to communicate through wifi, and that was not free). Weird and annoying.


WiFi is to expensive

Hi Vivien, Thank you for your email. We are very pleased to advise that we have now changed our wi-fi provider and now we have very cheap internet! Just $4 for 24 hours or $12 for 1 week.


very noisy !


Awesome hostel! We stayed in a private room which was one of the nicest we have stayed in in any hostel. T\The hostel had more than enough kitchens and bathrooms and was always very clean.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Everyone who works there is super friendly, very informative, helps with anything you need. Especially the ones with the cool hair! The night time security guys are even friendly if you don't annoy them haha! The hostel is sectioned which is cool and it's cleaned 1000 times a day. The only thing is I wish there was more toilets/showers, perhaps I was just too lazy to go downstairs. But sometimes you'd have to wait for people shower just to use the toilet.


We picked this place because it said there was parking. When we arrived we found out they only have 2 spaces for the entire hostel. There were car parks all around but expensive when you're there a few days. It's very misleading saying there's parking when there isn't enough. Kitchen area was cramped and lacking utensils. Wifi is expensive here, but at the end of the road you can access the free wifi zone.


Alright hostel, good location , facilities are fine not the most welcoming or friendliest staff in the world but they're ok


the fuse blew up and we didnt have electricity for a while but other than that everything was great.. the staff were amazing and the place is really clean and central

There was a disgusting guy in our dorm and the dorm stinks probably because of the man. There were no windows in that room but we got to change the dorm for the next night with better company and with a window, thanks to the staff for that. So the hostel itself was great.


Great hostel. Deserves much better rating that the one it has now. Not free wifi is pretty dissapointing but that is in almost every hostel in New Zealand I guess...


should be more ..more elastic.. ex. I arrived at 2 am. Could not go in before 2pm!


I've stayed here several times and really enjoyed each stay. Decent sized and clean rooms. Lots of kitchen space, friendly atmosphere, good book exchange and common room!


i was in a yellow part and outside of my room there were always people that talk or did a party,this was no so good.


The hostel provides all the facilities you could want as a traveller. The internet is WAY too expensive, particularly considering you can have free wifi just down the street! The atmosphere was odd with so many people loitering in the corridors all day long but they were all friendly nonetheless. The stairs to the side of the building are a great place for people to gather and smoke weed in the middle of the night - the noise and smells of which travel VERY well


A new, clean hostel, in a fantastic location. The blinds in our room were broken and let in a lot of light. Some better blinds or curtains would have made the stay perfect!


Very small room. Too many long-term residents. However, location is very good.
