The hosts are what make this place great. If you need to know anything, ask (walks, things to see, good food, good beers). Really enjoyed our short stay would come back.
Had an 5* stay at the Downtown Backpackers, only a two minute walk from the bus stop, was perfect after a 4hour bus trip from Auckland. Kat was awesome for arranging discounted trips and providing tonnes of cake!. The dvd selection was unreal! Most trips we got for half price, thanks Kat ;) Showers were great, nothing beats a decent hot shower after a day of white water rafting! We had planned staying for two nights, we stayed six!!! Cant wait to come back.
Really welcoming, Mr Tuy was really helpful. Would definitely stay again!
Planned to stay 2 nights and move on. Stayed a week! Had an absolute ball! Pretty much became night owls! Partied for a solid week! Cant wait to go back!
Our stay was ace, no complaints, place was spotless, staff were cool, they went out of their way to help us out.
Felt like home away from home.
Great time there, and the staff were really friendly.
