    Friendly staff who were in contact from the start to the end. Check in and out was quick and easy. I stayed in a single private room with a shared bathroom. Although the place is old, it’s kept clean. Had no issues with the facilities on site. There is a bit of noise from the road and others but nothing serious that I couldn’t get to sleep. Four square (grocer) is located across the road (1 min walk) and the city centre is is a 5 min walk away. Highly recommended for those on a budget :)

    Warm, clean, friendly, safe, lovely hot shower. Great value for money. Only mistake mine I booked twice after the I saw an email about booking and thought my original booking had failed. I didn't get a chance to apply for a refund for the second booking deposit. I was told I was too late and that I needed to contact you direct. I had a long trip to get to Gisborne.

    An overall decent hostel favored by the lack of competitors. Helpful staff, well equipped 24/7 kitchen, rooms are good. Nice common room full of books and movies (ordered alphabetically! Awesome!). WiFi is alright, location is very close from downtown and has a 4square across the street. Showers and toilets leave something to be desired. Quiet and international community. Recommendable.
