There are signs saying the hostel is undergoing earthquake improvement renovations. The double room had no windows and one skylight with no way to block the light. Our room became so hot we had to sleep with the door open, which increased the noise of people walking past. The staff were relaxed and helpful, there was free wifi, and there... More

Relaxed and homely feel. Kind of like shared accommodation. Big open plan kitchen-lounge which is great for socialising. Comfy couches to chill on and a huge selection of movies to choose from at no charge. Internet is fast, unlimited and free! Rooms are spacious and secure. The beds are definitely the comfiest mattresses you'll come across in a hostel. The... More

This place just isn't good. I stayed in hostels for months throughout the country and this was the worst of them. The place is all under construction. Literally every wall is bare and you can still see the screws. The room I stayed in had a ceiling sunlight that was propped open and it was COLD! There was no way... More

My friends and I aren't sure what to think about this hostel. It was a very informal check in process, although the staff member was lovely and friendly. The beds were comfortable but the rooms smelt musty and old. The showers were lovely and hot, and the bathrooms were kept outstandingly clean so that was really good. The kitchen was... More

I stayed in the Eagles nest backpacker for a week. I was made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff and the owner of the backpackers Daniel. The beds were very comfy and the showers were good and hot! The wifi was very good and free!

My friend and I have mixed feelings regarding this hostel. When we arrived the check in was weird - the guy didn't really explain anything or talk much either. The room was fine and the beds were comfy, equally the showers were good as were the other facilities and location. The wifi was poor though and some nights we had... More

Facilities and bedroom dirty. No windows in the double room. Kitchen modern but very small. The owner was hanging around all the time and not really friendly. I put one more star for the good showers and the free wifi.

First of all the ckeck-in was weird. After that, when we saw our room, we thought, that's a joke. The room was just ridiculous. Not cleaned and not vacuumed probably not even the linen were changed. Unfortunately it was raining so the top window and smokedetector were leaking, due to the strengthening of the building against earthquakes. The facilities (showers,... More

First off, there is absolutely nothing to do in Hamilton, kind of a middle of the road point for sleeping as you're traveling through the North Island. When I arrived there was a lot of confusion as far as beds that were available. It was also really bland and felt just kind of weird vibes. If you absolutely must come... More
