    Amazing backpackers in a super cool spot in the amazing city of Dunedin. Close to food and bars and atms. Good facilities. Free breakfast is great. Staff are friendly. It would be nice to be able to hang around in a common area for a bit after check out though.

    Really nice hostel. The pool bar is cool and the upstairs living space is big. Enough counter space in the kitchen. Each bunk had a light and a USB charging port, though the bunks could be a bit sturdier. You can drink until 8 upstairs but overall it’s a pretty quiet hostel, wouldn’t have minded more chats with the guests but that is partly on me. Overall pretty nice hostel and out of the 3 I’ve stayed in Dunedin this one is my favorite.

    Really enjoyed our stay although there were no blinds on the windows in the room so it heats up quickly and wakes you up at dawn

    Very good value for money, only thing I didn't like was that there was some litter still in our room from the last stay but other than that the free breakfast was good and the pool bar also. Would stay again

    Central location above a pool bar. Noise is not a problem though, which you might be thinking. Included breakfast is fine: cereal, toast, peanut butter, jam. Kitchen is spacious, although there is a problem with not all the cooker rings working. This would be a problem if more people were staying there. Only natural light in dorm rooms is from windows you have to stand on top bunk and reach up to open and close. Overall a good place to stay

    It's a fairly good hostel. The location is excellent. My only complaint is that the rooms don't have any lockers for storing belongings.
