    42B College House is closer to supermarkets and shops than the other hostels in Wanganui. The common room has dining tables, table tennis, piano, board games, toaster and charging plugs, but no couches. Good value for money as there is free breakfast 7:30am to 9:30am from a range of cereals, milk, bread for toast, and spreads. There is a nice outdoor area at the back, excellent for BBQs with the equipment provided.

    Average, friendly but quite dated building. Reason it's cheap maybe. Good for short stays, needs more bathrooms and better showers. Bed was uncomfortable but room was clean.

    Flies everywhere which wasn’t too encouraging. And my dorm room door never seemed to be closed and the fire exit was open all day, so not much emphasis on security. Most areas were averagely clean. A good spot to stay if you know you’ll be out all day!
