    We stayed as a sports team for one night. It was perfect for what we wanted. Staff were just great and so accomodating, however it was very noisey. A good set of ear plugs did the trick

    I had a single room stay at the hostel.... the room was clean as was the hostel, bathrooms, kitchen etc. Staff were friendly too. Location is about 5-10 minutes walk to the main strip of eateries/bars.

    very basic accommodation - but that's all we needed. the kitchen could really use an overhaul - a lot of the hotplates didn't work properly and to honest it was a little grubby. The 'clean' tea towels smelt like they hadn't been washed properly. Friendly staff and awesome pool

    Very grubby room. The curtains didn’t cover the door or window properly so it was light very early. Extremely noisy floorboards so you heard everyone moving around at all hours. The bathroom and kitchen weren’t especially clean and the it was a walk to town.

    The rating is for ostelworld for charging me 28NZ4 for a booking that I cancelled. Apparently Backyard inn is miles out of town and not very nice. Please send me back my 28$
