Room was dirty, looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks, the shower was disgusting. Air conditioning did not work, asked twice for this to be fixed but nothing. Staff, most of whom looked like teenagers on their working holiday visas, when not working seem to spend their time getting drunk and making noise at all hours in the communal area. One of the worst hostels I have stayed in. Do yourself a favour, pay a bit more and go to the YHA or Wake Up hostel down the road.

A great hostel. A bit noisy, but expected bearing in minds its a cbd hostel and tends to attract a younger crowd. Great staff, very helpful. Good value for money, got a free drink at the attached bar, and a free coffee at the attached café. Great location, just opposite central station. Would definitely recommend
Without doubt one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Brilliant concept, lovely and clean, fantastic facilities. Staff very helpful and lovely (a girl from Barnsley, England) and went out of her way to help me. Cant really think of any downsides about it. Good area too, some bars and take aways, only 15 min walk to CBD. Would definitely recommend

Overall this is a nice hostel. I stayed here two years ago, and whilst it is still good, I couldn't help but feel it wasn't to the standard previously. The dorm rooms are nice, good beds, which look pretty new. Good cooking facilities, nice back yard to chill out in, and a computer room to use free of charge. Downsides, the staff on reception (an American guy and girl I think), not particularly helpful and had a bit of attitude. And the cleanliness of the showers was not great
Nice hostel, central location, beautiful gardens to chill out in, can get a bit noisy though. Kitchen facilities were excellent. Mattreses on the beds were not very good, very thin. Other than that would recommend.
Not one of the better hostels in NZ. Good location and friendly staff. But the hostel was not clean at all, the showers were disgusting. And very noisy, not helped by the fact that the hostel backs onto some flats and they were banging music out
Excellent hostel. Very homely and the guy who runs it is so friendly.
A very nice hostel, certainly when compared to others in Auckland CBD. Nice feel, chilled out, relatively quiet, clean as well. English girl on reception had a bit of attitude, not massively helpful. Overall a good hostel and would definitely recommend.
A very nice hostel, great location, friendly staff, have stayed here on a few occasions and loved it. Would recommend.
Excellent hostel in the middle of Rotorua. Double rooms good value and very nice
Brilliant hostel Have travelled all over the world and can say that this is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Very clean, homely, excellent location and the woman on reception was very friendly and welcoming. Cant wait to go back
Certainly one of the most noisiest hostels I have ever stayed in. Okay if you are under the age of 21!!!
Excellent hostel. I will be returning again. Friendly staff, great location and excellent value for money.
My second time in this hostel and it is excellent value for money. Central location, comfortable dorms (front facing ones can be a bit noisy with traffic from main road) and great breakfast, all for 10 pound a night, a bargain compared with hostels in other capital cities. Highly recommended
Nice atmosphere, good location, decent breakfast, nice courtyard for having a drink, staff friendly enough. Downside - I stayed in a mixed four bed dorm where there were no lockers, so security not great, had to carry valuables around with me which I dont like doing when travelling. Overall though, good hostel
Excellent. One of the best value for money hostels I have stayed in. Very friendly and extremely clean.
Absolutely brilliant. One of the best value hotels I have stayed in. Is away from the sights (about 45 min walk) but in a nice quiet area called Bani Park (which is within walking distance of the railway station). Very clean, hot water and TV too. Nice big beds. Friendly staff. Cannot believe it is not in the Lonely Planet
