    Just needed somewhere to crash after a social event to avoid travelling back late to Upper Hutt. No complaints other than the lack of coffee sachets, there was only decaf, tea and hot chocolate. I NEEDED coffee.

    Bed took up 90% of the room - so much so that I could only open the door enough to just squeeze through. No idea why you need California king beds. Despite that it was great - excellent location, friendly staff, well maintained bathrooms, and good value for money.

    Hi The carpets could be replaced they are pretty threadbare and very stained right where you step in and out of bed. The humming from the air conditioning unit or similar made it very difficult to sleep. But if I was on a tight budget again I would return

    This hostel was okay. Lay out feels a bit boarding school like but kitchen was big and nice. Staff were friendly. Rooms were outdated but it is meant to be an old style hotel/hostel. Overall it was a fine stay and nothing was wrong. Not very lively but fine if you dont want a party hostel. Not many plug sockets so be prepared for that.

    Not quite what the photos portrayed the room was much smaller than expected, furnishings were tattered and frayed, the room smelled and the supplied blankets and towels were below standard.
