    밖은 낡은것처럼 보이는데 안에 들어가면 시설이 정말 좋아요 프라이빗 룸은 싱크대, 식기류, 토스트기, 커피머신, 미니냉장고까지 있고 침대도 좋고 방도 넓어요 화장실도 정말 깨끗 👍🏻 공용부엌은 여태 가본 호스텔 중 가장 식기류가 많고 다양했어요 스태프도 너무 친절하고 위치도 인터시티 버스정류장 근처여서 너무 좋았어요 왜 이렇게 평점이 좋은지 알 것 같습니다

    Great Hostel! No issues there. Breakfast was good, there are easy to use laundry facilities, and the place even has a hot tub. It is a bit far, but walking to any Franz Josef trail (I did Roberts Point) is very possible.

    Exactly what a hostel should be. Access to a covered outdoor hot tub with a beautiful view, free popcorn on demand at the front desk, 24 hour on-site laundry available (I'll be it, a bit overpriced), and plenty of kitchen/fridge/table space within. It's a 4 minute walk to the supermarket and only a few minutes further to the glow worm walk. The beds were average, but I would definitely stay here again and recommend the same to anyone else.

    Location is great. It was peaceful. There is enough space for parking. Staff is helpful. The facilities are OK. Just cereals make up the free breakfast. There is a free soup in the evening, but if you can like it. The room ambience not appealing. It is decorated with old scrap from the industry. The bathroom sink (Room No. 9) was too small for even hands to properly wash. It felt very unhygienic. The bathroom remained wet & clumsy due to improper drainage. Overall a OK place for limited budget.
