Great hostel and the best one we've stayed in in New Zealand. Our room was comfortable and clean, as were all the facilities. The kitchen is really nice and has everything you could possibly need. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The place had a really nice feel to it and we felt at More

Quirky little hostel with a great atmosphere. If you are a bit of a musician and miss playing instruments, stop in here and have a strum of a guitar, ukelele and many others. Definitely a place I would go back to! 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

Friendliest staff and lovely hostel, would reccomend in a heartbeat. Poor security because you could just walk into the hostel as there's rarely anyone at the front desk, and we couldn't work out how to lock the bedroom door from the outside. The outside looks a bit dodgy and off More

Booked a 4 person room only to arrive at the hostel to be booked in to a 6 person room. There were 4 of us and the receptionist said that there was no price difference between the rooms, hence, we should be okay with staying in a 6 person room. We tried to reason with her but after much More
