It was a pretty noisy night when we stayed, probably because a Rugby team was also there so that affect our stay. Everything else was pretty nice! More

I've stayed in a number of great hostels, including a different one on the North Island that week, and Blackcurrants Backpackers was one of the worst I've stayed at. The bathroom was stinky, simply set up with not enough ventilation--and the room itself was pretty ramshackle. Also, the More

Great hostel, each dorm has it's own attached toilet which I thought was great! No bunk beds as well. Staffs were friendly and informative. Wifi and internet was expensive though. More

It's homey, large kitchen, and cozy dining room, very near to the lake and city center, large parking space. The most important thing is, this hostel is not too crowded (dunno in summer). Not the best, but at least very decent. More
