$85 for a double room (cottage) is a cube on wheels with nothing but a double bed inside, I had friends take a room at the same price elsewhere in tekapo for the same price, they had an ensuite
The hostel is great, the bathrooms on 5th floor are pretty poor condition tho
There no lockers the rooms which is risky, they have 16 lockers in the common room so if first in first serve, shower in room was awfull, staff friendly but not super friendly like some other hostels, only hostel ive stayed at in dublin, i would probably look elsewhere before staying there again
6 bed dorm was great, plenty of space in the room, lockers are small so you can only put a small back pack in which is a slight downfall, and the rooms at not card access, wifi was not to great but no worse than most hostels anyway,, staff are awesome, i will be staying again for sure!
Good hostel but noise from common room is loud in bedrooms
No lockers in rooms! Majour security issue and on top of that i think it would be very easy for anyone to walk in off the street, head up the stairs, wait for someone to cone threw the only door between the street and public (which there is no staff at) walk threw that door when some leaves from the otherside, then have access to any room and take what they want, there are locks on the room doors so you could just hope all your room mates remember to lock the doors (not smart)
Amazing hostel with very very kind and friendly staff! Would stay there again for sure!
Best hostel i have ever stayed in! Great location, modern building and super friendly staff!
No power in the rooms which is a huge problem, you have charge your phones etc at the bar, you can give them things charge night which they put a tag on and it and put them in a stag room which is on but not ideal, the WIFI pretty much does not work at all and really needs to be fixed as most backpackers are dependant on WIFI at hostels, not the cleanest hostel ive stayed at but price is not to bad and location is great
Fantastic hostel with very friendly staff!
I booked an 18 bed dorm for 5 nights, chcecked out after my first night, it was that bad, no floor space at all two to be shared by 18 people, i had to sleep my back pack on my bed as the lockers (which they charge for) are quite small and i could not fit my back pack in (and it's only a 70 litre pack) i felt like a caged chicken in room will never stay there again
