A few blocks away from the waterfront, perfect hostel if you want to have a good night sleep to do the tongariro crossing. Kitchen is good, nice staff. And no bunk beds in our room! :)
I enjoyed my stay, it was nice to catch up with lots of different people from different cultures

I can book it again, I had a lovely stay.
Staff were extremely rude and unfriendly. Had I not put a deposit down, I would have walked out after our first conversation with the front desk. It seemed she was in a horrible mood and took it out on us. Not the way you want to be welcomed. Big clean kitchen, coed bathrooms (not as much privacy as I would have liked), nice clean spacious room (wooden beds), not a very social atmosphere, 10 min walk from town. Overall loved the cleanliness, hated the rude front desk woman.
