    Had a great stay at the Mount. It‘s cozy and small and location is absolutely great. Was probably in the smallest room (Nr 3) and as it was full it was a bit tight with everyone‘s luggage. As I arrived by car you have to find a spot a bit further away but was all super safe. There are some small spots here and there to hang otherwise was almost all the time out. Restaurants and Bars are just outside the door and an awesome coffee place (Luca).

    Pretty good place to stay since it's right in town and close to everything. The vibe was a little meh- the "hangout area" is a bit dingy and there were tons of flies outside in the eating area. Beds were comfortable and clean tho.

    Good location and good atmosphere. Not the best hostel I’ve been in, but pretty nice. No lockers so be aware.

    Good place for a couple of nights. Definitely a good spot if you want to party and go to the beach. Its opposite a lot of bars so can be noisy at night. The bunk beds weren't great as they were flimsy but were managable for a night or two. The staff were super friendly and helpful.

    Nice hostel, perfect lication. Very easy and casual vibe. Mostly young crowd but everyone seems nice. They don't have lockers in room but it felt pretty safe. I enjoyed my stay there and met some nice people. Definitely good place to be if traveling to Mount Maunganui and looking for some beach time

    Great location in town but this makes it pretty loud at night. No curtains in the room so isn't dark in the morning. Beds were ok but rooms were small and no lockers in the room. Rooms were up stairs and bathrooms downstairs next to common area so had to walk past everyone to use. Some atmosphere and good reccommendations for evening. Had a very young person feel so great of what you are looking for.

    Location is great but that's it. Place is so tight and the bathrooms/showers are located in the common room downstairs, it was super weird to walk out into the room and just be stared at by everyone while watching a movie. Bathrooms weren't well maintained, common room is two tight couches and not enough room for the hostel at all. The only time I spent inside of the hostel was to sleep because it was so small.

    I would not recommend staying in the 16 bed dorm, I was placed right by the window and was so cold but didn’t want to close the window because that was the only fresh air going into that cramped room. There was no room for any bags because of the the bunk beds stuffed in. I would definitely recommend taking one or two sets of bunk beds out of this room. Good location and staff was helpful when I wanted to shorten my stay.
