Tiki lodge is great. It was not the staff that made it for me but the fellow guests. The hostel has a great atmosphere. More

A nice hostel the younger staff members at reception were lovely and helpful (didn't find the older staff very nice or friendly!) nice kitchen and a great location. The dorms are very tight though and they have draws under the beds for the bunks but out of 6 only 1 would actually pull out More

Great hostel. Fantastic staff who can sort out tours for you. 10 minutes walk to the lake. Free shuttle to the bus stop if you need it. Wifi was a bit ropey unfortunately. Would stay here again. More

Good hostel, nice facilities, wifi is good even though hard to connect to sometimes. Rooms are clean, but the mattresses not really comfy and the beds really squeeze. Convenient location, and very welcoming and helpful staff! More

Rented a private room, way nicer than what we expected, more like a motel. Good value for what you pay, only thing I didn't like was that wifi only worked when you stood outside on the grass in the centre of the building, once more people came back to the hostel you then had trouble More

Kitchen was dirty and so there were flies everywhere. They had an electric fly killer which looked as though it hadn't been emptied for quite a while. It's a shame that people can't clean up after themselves, but the hostel should be more vigilant and penalise the culprits. It would also More

Silver Fern is a modern accommodation. Everything is in a state of new, including the cooking utensils (how good is it to use a frying pan that doesn't stick !). Also, every room has a TV (including dorms). Silver Fern Lodge suffer from the vicious circle where it doesn't have good grades More

Room was not clean when we checked in and had marks all over the walls. Kitchen was dirty and poorly equipped. Hostel generally looked like it was overdue for a renovation. More
