After staying in nearly a dozen hostels in NZ, this place felt like coming home! Free WiFi is hard to find in NZ and it was better than the stuff we were paying 6 dollars for at Base. The kitchen is phenomenal and has free spices! The rooms are huge, bunks were wood so no creaking, and More

We stayed in a private room although have stayed here before in the dorms as well. Staff were super helpful and the secure bike storage was great and I found the free wife brilliant although my friend was using a USA sim card and could not access it. We had a great time away and would stay More

Good location, clean rooms and friendly, helpful staff with great local knowledge. We were in a double room which was very hot and with only one window we couldn't get a draft to cool it down, that's the only negative though. More

I arrived late evening but dave (the owner) arrived within a few minutes to let me in. The hostel is superclean and provides a lot of good services such as free wifi, free spices to cook with, bordplaying games and free coffee/tea. Dave is a great help if it comes to providing information More

This place was awesome. I would have stayed longer if I could afford the time. The beds are comfortable and they aren't bunk beds. The wifi was free and reliable. Great kitchen. Friendly staff. I loved it there. More

Had some great nights here, swimming pool, bbq, great bar next door with the best bar people I've met in NZ and really nice team in the hostel too. If you have issues with busy kitchen just don't go at the same time as everyone or use the bbq and "eat St" is great. More

Very nice hostel in a good location, bar attached is great fun and has a good atmosphere. Facilities are good, kitchen ended up a bit grubby and had a lack of cutlery but it was always clean again by the morning. Very nice dorms, however no lockers which is a shame for the price you pay. More

The staff here were incredible. Very friendly and spent ages with us figuring out the best way for us to do all the tours we wanted for the best price. They recommended the evening program at Tamaki Maori village which was a highlight of the trip so far! The hostel is close to grocery More

We expected a restaurant and so were disappointed. The kitchen looked great but was not maintained enough. There were no plugs in the sink so water was wasted. There were no dish cloths or cloths to wipe the surfaces so the tea towels were used and so there never any dry tea towels to dry More

The lounge area was disappointing. People shouldn't be allowed to sleep there; if people want to sleep, tell them to go to their rooms. We walked in for the first time and saw 5 people just passed out in random places. It made the place feel very lousy. Also, the noise regulation. What More
