one of the worst hostels i have stayed in. The atmosphere here wasn't great - full of long term staff that seem to get on well but as a backpacker looking to meet new people not great! athe secruity on the front door as fine but after that appalling!! the door of our room was constantly left open for anyone to walk in and felt very unsafe. Overall it was in an ok location - far out from town but ponsonby was nice but wouldn't stay here again ever

Uenuku had an amazing back deck with a partial roof for rainy days. The staff were very helpful, and contributed to a friendly hostel vibe. Cool-toned fairy lights illuminated the major corridor at night, creating a cozy ambience. Negatives: some mold in the bathrooms; stuffy, humid dorm room; for a couple of nights, extra people were stashed in cots around the hostel...one in my room, two in the living room.

Nice little hostel to stay at. I'd say over priced and there was no "warm welcome" as there usually is at hostels, more of a hostile welcome in all honesty. Beds were comfortable and facilities were better than some places I've stayed at.

I never met any staff, the place was pretty dirty. Bed ok but room very noisy so didn't sleep much. Location good. Overpriced.

This hostel could definitely use a little updating, maybe even just a paint job. There were holes in the walls and the paint was falling off in some places. The bathroom could definitely use some tlc. I felt like everything was dirty all the time. The staff were nice but they had their own time-keeping schedule for reception which is not something you'd expect at a hostel where people arrive at different times throughout the day. The location was good and it was handy that there was parking.

Double booked us, but they did sort us a place to stay at one of their sister hostels.
