    Superb

    I enjoyed staying here, especially with all of the craziness that was going on with the virus, and felt like the staff tried to do everything they could to help me and others out in trying to arrange changes based on what directives were coming in from the government. The free pancakes in the morning were awesome and worth the early wake up time. I wish they would have let us have our own alcohol in the kitchen/dining area instead of having to hand over our alcohol when we came in.

    Free pancakes from 7am-8am were great and very appreciated! Pretty clean for amount of people but some bathrooms lacked hand soap in them. We were up on the 7th floor and room was quiet even though the street below was loud. Would recommend for a night or two.

    Kitchen was dirty consistently and on top of that only one working fridge, 7 hobs out of 20 didn't work, no freezer, no oven, one kettle worked out of 3, 1 toaster out of 2 and generally just not a big enough kitchen for its occupants. The pillows did not exist, some where threadbare and barely constituted pillows, staff offered a towel to bulk it out. Rest was cleanish, alright vibe but nothing really going on.Staff were really helpful in posting on some forgotten things which was super nice.

    Clean enough rooms, kitchen was a bit dirty and not enough cutlery at all. Staff were super rude and clearly unstaffed. Interislander ticket says you can catch shuttle from base to ferry & when you ask them they all act clueless- the guy on reception told me it left yha at 730... turns out it left yha at 720 so I missed the bus and had to pay $12 to get there when it could have been free. Spoke to the guy at yha and he said the staff at base have been told this over & over again but still do it

    This hostel was the most expensive and the dirtiest hostel where I've been in NZ. Especially the kitchen was discusting and the fridge had left open so many times that my food turned bad. I wouldn't recommend this hostel for solo travellers. It was full of teenagers who are travelling by Kiwi experience so they were staying in their own groups and long-terms had their own ones. I got really bored and lonely in the hostel.
