    I will definitely stay here again! Avoid stairs by taking the York St exit out of Wynyard Station. Go up to the deck at dawn to see the sun rising behind the Opera House. Everything you need, including lockers to stow your luggage before flying out, and scales to weigh your luggage. Great kitchen and shower facilities.

    This is my favourite hostel i've ever stayed in! Definitely partly due to the fact that my roommates were wonderful and i have had some horrendous roommate experiences. But I appreciate the ensuite bathroom with enough space to do everything as well as the usb charger by the bed. the view on the roof is absolutely unbeatable and was perfect to watch the sunset!

    En-suite bathrooms were a nice touch. We stayed in both 6 bed and a 4 bed dorm. Both were nice but the extra space in the 6 bed was appreciated. Staff were regularly and thoroughly cleaning the entire property which was great. The hostel is walking distance from the opera house and 25mins by train to the airport which was incredibly convenient. Common areas were pleasant, bright, clean and spacious. A mixture of guests staying here including young backpackers, families and older residents. It is not a pa

    Not that good: I stayed 6 nights at the Hostal. Someone was picking up the rubbish of the room everyday but the floor and toilet were slowly dirty. These were not being cleaned. Good: - 24/7 reception. The guys there were always very helpful and nice. - The laundry hat new good machines (to wash and dry) - Many kitchens can be used

    Has great location & view from top floor with en-suite bathroom; however, beds not that comfortable & kids running around sometime. Breakfast is basic as it gets to be honest which consist of toast & jam with hot drink..
