The Hostel was really comfortable and clean...and I was surprised how warm was there during the night. I would definitely recommend, because its close to hanmer spring pools, silent with nice staff.

Kitchen closed at 10pm which was a little strange. Other than that it was a decent hostel. Clean rooms and a nice receptionist

Thanks for your review. We would just like to clarify that we do have a no alcohol in the sleeping rooms policy and unfortunately from time to time people like to break the rules. We are as disappointed as you that this happened during your stay. Had we known, these people would have been removed. Although we are onsite we can not see everything that goes on in the building. We are however available 24 hours and would have happily dealt with the issue at the time.
