Nice big rooms, very clean, great staff. Only minus are the long stairs from the street (no elevator), but that's not a problem if you don't have too much luggage and don't have trouble walking them up. Otherwise in my experience one of the best hostels in NZ. You can't do your laundry by yourself but can give it to the staff to do for 5 dollars.
4 bed dorms on the yard side are really really small, hard to fit four peoples luggage. Cleaning is done by backpackers who also live there, not very professional (putting clean linen on the floor and other peoples beds that might have dirty sheets). Lots of hassle with double bookings while I was there.
4 bed female dorm was small, but the bathroom was luxuriously spacious and excellent in every way. You don't have to worry about cold nights, you can tune the room temperature to be the way you like it. Free tea and coffee is a plus too :)
Minuses from old fashioned water taps in the kitchen, made washing the dishes difficult. Showers were clean, but at least the one I used gave either too hot or cold water for most of the time.
Lovely house, nice rooms and big bathrooms. Only minus from the old-fashioned water taps in the kitchen, washing the dishes could be much easier if they would be raplaced with new ones :)
Nice place, new facilities and a cool rooftop balcony. 4-person dorm room was quite small and the bunk beds are not for large people. Not many bathrooms, clean but small in size.
