Nice hostel, but quite a lot of 'long term' guest...so the atmosphere was not great. Also, there are quite a lot of rules, but I would recommend it over Base or Nomads for sure.

Pros: decent unlimited internet Cons: some staff members were quite rude, crazy lock code to enter the building After we check out, the staff made it seem like they were doing us a BIG favor by letting us use the common area for 20-30 mins. I asked to grab a spoon from the kitchen since it was closed (at 10am?), I assured them I would clean it afterwards, but the female staff member made a HUGE deal out of this. Horrible service and this is not how customers should be treated.

Cool hostel, but pretty far away from everything else. The hostel has a really cool garden and is a pretty sweet set up. Only downside is the distance from the city center.

decent hostel, free pickup from the ferry was nice! But the wifi didn't work at all the entire stay, which was unfortunate since I needed to do some work. Other than that the hostel is just average 7/10. There aren't many options in Picton so this was the only choice. Staff is friendly and the facilities are good enough.

This "party island" is hit or miss...really depends on the crowd. The DJ shut down at 3am...even though a large group still wanted to party. Nice for 1 night...but way nicer places to see in Fiji!

I was in the 8 person "discount" room and wasn't a fan. The beds small and super uncomfortable, kitchen is also tiny. Staff and everyone was friendly and I think we just got a bad room. I preferred other hostels in Auckland.

Great hostel in a perfect location. The electricity and hot water was out when I arrived, but at least they gave me a free beer and flashlight! It wasn't ideal, but I it was because of the city maintenance. I would certainly go back here again next time I am in HK!

Love this place and continue to come back every trip to Tokyo. It has the privacy of a Capsule, but more of a hostel atmosphere. The common room can be pretty hit or miss depending on how social the guests are. For the price, it is one of the best locations in Tokyo!
