    Hostel was great with good facilities. Dunedin has lots of steep hills. This hostel is on a steep hill! We walked downhill to get to downtown.

    When we got to Chalet, it looks haunted AF! We just found it creepy, but in the end it was a good stay for just a short time.

    Met our requirements coming off the Rail Trail. Expected to have a toilet with our room but that didn't work out. Dunedin was freezing but the room was warm

    We stayed here for one night, fairly decent hostel for the money, the beds were a bit squeaky and the sheets were stained but the staff were very friendly and quite helpful. Feel that my rating accurately reflects the quality of the hostel in general.

    Not a great neighbourhood to stay in. Had to buzz into the building with photo Id. (Signs were posted saying not to let anyone in the building. Doesn’t make you feel very safe). Inside everything is very worn down and really needs a facelift. Kitchen facilities weren’t kept very clean.
