Freezing cold! Only one free plug-in in our 4 bed dorm. Staff were helpful, gave us a ride to the bus so we didn't have to walk the 2 kms.
Melissa on the travel desk was really helpful with suggestions of how to spend my few days in NZ. The washrooms were really clean (one of the few hostels where I didn't feel like I needed to wear flip flops in the shower). The 6 bed dorm I was in had a few single beds, which was nice.
The washrooms were really dirty - one of the sinks was full of vomit when I was getting ready in the morning. No keys for the rooms, and the dorms were tiny, not even room to keep my stuff on the floor. Thin mattress and thin blankets. Nice location, right on the beach.
Staff were very helpful, rooms were really clean, and location was good - close but not too close to Bangla Rd, and a close walk to the nearby mall. Liked that the 4 bed dorm had all single beds, nice to get a break from the bunk beds in most hostels.
Cockroach in my room. Broken showers. Rats in the kitchen!
