    The view is an obvious reason to chose this place. I appreciated having quiet time to myself, not a super social place but it’s what I needed at the time. I didn’t love the shower situation, was a block style which felt a bit institutional. The view was sweet. I wish I’d known you have to pay $5 for parking but that’s better than the only other option which is something like $45 a day. It was really clean just lacked overall atmosphere which it made up for in location. Was also super hot in room

    We had a really pleasant stay here just before New Years. A lovely atmosphere and everything we needed. It's a pretty standard hostel but the views are stunning and it is nice and open planned meaning it doesn't feel crowded.

    The hostel was slightly a little more pricey than average, but well worth it. Clean, friendly, central location, modern. A wonderful sitting/activity area and kitchen with a view of the bay. A pleasure to stay at. Highly recommended.

    The location of this place is insane. Beautiful view of the water right from the common area. Honestly everything about it was phenomenal. The only drawback is that it was a little hotter than I would have liked, but it was summer in NZ and some small fans were available for the rooms.

    Nice hostel in amazing location. Clean, had all the amenities but rooms were a bit stuffy with no opening window. Guy on reception was really friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was a little quiet and a bit of a short term guests vs long term guests feel.

    This is my second time staying here, again the only thing that lets it down is the rooms are very hot but the view from the common area is still fantastic as it’s so well located. Was very pleasantly surprised to find everyone had a small personal fan in each bunk which really did help with the heat :)

    Hostel was a great location close to the beach and food, beautiful view from the comfy lounge! Only issue was that the rooms were so small and stuffy and it got sooo hot and sometimes smelled. Staff was friendly and bathrooms good and clean.
