This is the best hostel I have had the pleasure of staying at in New Zealand! Fantastic atmosphere, the staff are really friendly and the hostel is homely, clean, well decorated and full of music and life. I had the best three nights here and didn't want to leave. Great location, minutes More

Nice hostel and great view from the balcony. I was disappointed that the hot tub was temporarily out of order. I got free WiFi though, which was nice, as they used to charge for it. I liked the wood stove - it made the lounge nice and cosy. More

Not a bad backpackers, great location but a bit pricey. Facilities are good, free tea and coffee. It was quiet dying my stay, probably due to the winter months. Rooms were good and clean. Would stay here again. More

I recommend this backpacker. The bonus are the pool and spa (plus the free breakfast). My stay was in winter and so the pool was empty, but not the spa, and it was very good to enjoy it after carrying my luggage all the day long :) More

The Sauna and the Spa Pool were great! But the lady at the reception was sometimes a bit unfreindly and she doesn't seem like she likes her job very much...a small breakfast in the morning was also nice :-) More
