The hostel is REALLY great. The atmosphere is incredible, especially for a large hostel, it's still a great place to make friends. They have a cool bar downstairs which is popular in Sydney. They organize free city tours and beach walks. It's very clean and secure. Staff is really nice as well. The only problem were the rooms. Unfortunatly, the PRIVATE rooms are tiny. I never complain about the rooms because I don't expect a 5 star hotel out of a hostel, but they're really small and uncomfortabl
Nice hostel with nice staff. The reviews don't lie. Unfortunately it's far from the Main Street and away from the nightlife. If that is what you want, then it's the perfect hostel for you. For us it was a bit too relaxed.
We really loved this hostel. Great common room, good to meet people. Good kitchen. Wonderful staff and very clean. What more do you want? Stay here! :)
We loved the hostel!!!! Full of nice touches like free condiments in their many kitchens that you could use to cook... Also they have a pool table and a free jacuzzi. Really easy to meet other travelers in the common room. It's only a 2 min walk from the spa as well as the main streets of town. They also organize activities for you. Some are even free like the pub crawl. We had a great time! P.s. If you stay in urban retreat in Taupo you can get a discount upon booking, and vice versa.
Great little hostel, surprisingly clean. Very good value for money compared to other ocean road accommodations. They even have a BBQ for you to use. The atmosphere is okay, the town itself shuts down at 9 pm, so it's not the hostel's fault.
The location is perfect. You can see the whole independence square from the balcony. The showers are very small and do not work very well. There is a very small common area wich is also the reception. The hostel was pretty empty when I stayed there so I cannot comment about the atmosphere.
The Meininger was a mixture of a hostel and a hotel which made the rooms very spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are good. The only problem is that there is a lack of atmosphere in the common area and it is not very easy to meet people. However, at night people hang out at the bar and there is a good atmosphere.
The hostel has a good location and close to the tube. The rooms are extremely small and you can barely find space to put your stuff. The atmosphere was not great when I was there but that can depend of the time of the year.
