A six-bed dorm without a window or even a ventilation? With only one plug available, and that one only if the bed next to it isn't occupied? Come on!


Excellent place to stay if you go to invercargill!


It's not too expensive which is great and the staff are helpful: sadly room was incredibly stuffy with no window! Small and hot with only one plug socket. Also very unsociable - not able to meet many people within hostel easily. Half the beds were not cleaned on arrival so made bottom bunk myself by swapping with the cleaner top bunk to sleep in. Other than that, it was a bed for the night so cannot complain


This is a pretty good hostel in a central location. It is walkable to the airport if you have the time and patience. Some of staff are super helpful, others are not. Luck of the draw I guess.
