Great location in Kowloon area of Hong Kong but rooms were a bit small to have four people crammed into them.

Verandahs Backpackers Lodge, Auckland, New Zealand

15th Feb 2017

Better than another hostel I stayed at in the Ponsonby area. Other hostel only gives you 100 mb of wi-fi for entire stay and Verandahs Backpackers Lodge offers unlimited wi-fi. Rooms were better and more spacious. Highly recommend to travelers staying the Ponsonby area of Auckland.

Considering the size of the facility and that some camper van guests can also use the facilities, the kitchen is rather small. It is a bit of a inconvenience there are no power outlets in the dorms, but you know that signing up. My three bed dorm was clean and comfortable. Views from the cafe and lounge area in the front of the hostel are the best in NZ!

Very good hostel. Kitchen was clean and everything was easy to use and in good working order. very good location with several supermarkets and a Burger King and McDonalds within walking distance in addition to a big box retailer called Warehouse in case you need to do some shopping for clothes.

Lazy Dog Backpackers, Turangi, New Zealand

4th Feb 2017

If you are in Turungi to do the Alpine Crossing, than the Lazy Dog Hostel is the place you want to stay at. If you have a rental car, the owner will pick you up at a car park and then drive you to the starting point for the crossing. Hostel is small but the bathrooms were clean and plenty of hot water. Kitchen stove burners were well marked and easy to use.

The girl who checked me was not too friendly maybe because of how large the hostel is and there are maybe a few hundreds guests in the hostel at anytime. four floors of four bed dorms and there is no nice homely hostel feel like others in NZ. Facilities are good but considering how many people there, best to be avoided during peak breakfast and dinner times.

Thank you for the feedback. Apologies for the lack of friendliness on check in, we pride ourselves on our service levels, so its good to get these reminders from time to time. I'll share with our reception team. Kindest regards, Chris ~ Area Hostel Manager

If there were lockers in the dorm rooms, it would be a perfect hostel.

Centrally located and rooms were spacious and comfortable. Electric outlet in bunk area and bathrooms were very good. Liked that they rent GoPro cameras if you want to use them when you go bungee jumping , skydiving or any of the other adventurous things you can do in Queenstown.

The facilities were ok but the burners on the stove were not labeled correctly and was difficult to know which burner to use. The dorm rooms were slightly bigger than average and the bathroom in the dorm was good. No locker in the dorm rooms. Staff were not as friendly as other hostels when I arrived which set a negative tone for the first few hours after check in.

Little frustrated with the times for when the reception is open. I had a rough arrival to Auckland after the airline lost my luggage and when I arrived at the hostel at 1:30 in the afternoon, I had to wait 30 minutes until the reception opened up again and check me in.

Great location. Close to Spectacles Bridge and the main shopping area. Common area was a bit spartan but that is Japan for you. Would recommend you bring your inside shoes or slippers. the ones the hostel provide are slippery and will fall off your feet when you are walking down the stairs!! LOL

You can not ask more for a hostel. One of the top five hostels I have stayed at in my 20 plus years of back packing. Hostel has a cool atmosphere and is right in the heart of the party district of Seoul. The owner of the hostel got on his bike and met us at a landmark near the hostel after the taxi dropped off at a wrong location.

Bare bones hostel in a great location but a little confusing to find for first time visitors to Hong Kong. The building where the hostel is located is easy to find but the inside of the building is very confusing for first time visitors to the hostel.
