    Had a lovely stay here. Staff great. Although the room we were initially allocated at the back of the hostel smelled heavily of damp, they had no problem moving us to another room. I’ve marked them down for security, because I accidentally used my key on the wrong room … and it worked! Didn’t make us feel quite so secure, but we had no worries.

    It's an old and somewhat smelly hostel - the rooms are okayish (we had to turn off the small fridge during the night due to the noise it produced), bathrooms are good, however all other facilities are horrendous. The kitchen looks and smells disgusting, this was the only hostel during our NZ trip where we entered the kitchen and went out right away. We would not come back here.

    The beds were amazing and I met some great people there but the staff were rude and over charged me and the wifi was inconsistent at best, but probably best down bed I’ve been in

    Great location, but room was average and wasn't spotless. The window was also broken which meant a lot of bugs got into the room

    Dirty, old and run down. Dining tables were sticky and chairs had holes in the fabric. Some of the lights in the kitchen weren't working. There were signs in the kitchen saying you must label your food, but no labels or pens - staff were confused when I asked for labels. Tea towels and bath mats were always damp and dirty and never replaced. One of the laminated signs in the kitchen had a photocopy of a woman's passport on the reverse. Our room was not vacuumed. Mould on ceiling in our room.

    The people who worked the “front desk” were unhelpful/ seemingly uncaring about who they were checking in - offering no information/ unable to answer questions. The bathroom showers had no mats and there were no paper towels/hand dryer to use after using washing hands. My room was right above the smoke pit so the room smelled of smoke any time, which was often, people were having a cigarette. And, I waited an hour for my food in an unbusy bar. Overall, it seemed people just didn’t care.

    DO NOT BOOK. Arrived from Christchurch to find the place closed. Called the number on the door who said they had been closed for months. Never apologized and was very unhelpful. They never attempted to contact us to say they were closed after we made the booking. Was then left stranded to find accommodation for the night. Yet to receive the deposit returned. Even the locals didnt have anything positive to say about the hostel.

    It's kind of horrific what happened to me there. I walked at 8 pm tired and hungry after 8h hike. I asked to be put in 5 people dorm. I heard that for 5 people dorm there should be 5 people and I should join 4 people dorm. I said in the case I will book online. They kept me waiting for 20 min and told my booking was declined as 5 people just booked the room. I said this was a set up and they told me to get out, threw me out on the street. Terrible place. Avoid at all costs.
