    Great hostel. Didn't think to check if it was a dry hostel ,but that is on me. Seems more of a recent made hostel, the rooms are really well done, dorms. Each person has a little shelf by their bunk bed, with plugs. Great kitchen storage. fun and cozy.

    Great location, close to loads of shops and restaurants downtown. Free street parking on the weekend or garage parking down the road. The hostel was just getting back on its feet after lockdown so I feel kitchen/social areas weren't in their usual state.

    Location of this hostel was great with overnight parking available on the street just outside, lots of pubs and restaurants close by. The reception was friendly and helpful. The hostel was crowded with lots of long stay residents, all nice people but I find it takes from the hostel “spirit “ and atmosphere and makes the overnighter feel like an interloper, especially at cooking time. The beds were ok. Toilets and showers were not far away and seemed to be shared by both males and females .......

    Arthouse Accommodation - Since COVID, NZ hasn’t received many international visitors. Many hostels are struggling, so renting rooms out to “long-timers” has become the new standard. To my knowledge I was the only Traveler there. I shared my room with others that have been there for months. In all fairness, guests were cordial, facilities were clean, well maintained, large kitchen, well lit, and good location. Buses just around the corner. No staff the entire weekend I was there.

    I told to cancel for a week booking to the Arthouse Collection. However, they charged the whole payment and showed no apologies and no respect at all. Won’t reccomend y’all to book the place n the staff were helpless.
