Nice staff, clean and tidy. Had everything I needed. Not very sociable but that's probably because I visited in the winter. Bit too expensive for what it is.

Pretty good. It’s the only option in Invercargill for hostels really. Linens are spotless, rooms are clean - it feels much more like a hotel than many other hostels I’ve been to in NZ. Keycard access. Friendly desk staff
