The location is great and the staff is friendly but the facility itself could use some renovations. Also the common area was a little disappointing.

Filthy dirty, shower, sink and loo wouldn't work properly, bathroom door kept flying open. Bunk bed very small so can't sit up on lower bunk. Bed Room tiny, noisy and full of mosiquitoes if you wanted air. Kitchen was a bit grim and The outside area is in need of tlc. The reading room smells bad and the seats need cleaned.

Good location and quietest hostel I stayed in in NZ. Beds were comfy, and liked the outdoor seating area. Staff didn't seem interested in questions that didn't result in revenue, and rooms were stifling hot and smelly at night with door locked. Would benefit from lockers within the rooms, but no lockers within rooms seems standard in NZ. Would stay again.

A very cool place! Nice staff, amazing atmosphere and very close to beach and supermarket. Clean rooms and bathroom and a big kitchen! Would definitely stay again!
