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

I stayed here for 3 nights during the cricket world cup. The look is a bit spartan although they have signs up saying it's renovation to earthquake proof the place. It's pretty small but cosy. It is centrally located and it has most anything you want in the kitchen. A tv with lots of DVD's and decent selection of channels.... More

The Eagle backpackers had a good location in Hamilton's CBD and is super close to a supermarket The general bus station was a 15 minute walk away. Just make sure to look closely for the entrance because I walked past 3 times. There is no big entrance area, it is just a door that goes up the stairs. Inside, there... More

Took a private room with a king and single bed for 54$(BBH member) and the hostel was totally worth it considering the money paid. Not the best bathrooms or space but for the price was reasonable, pass by.

we had a good time in this place. It is backpacker hostel, so you can't be really fussy. It was ok clean, rooms are very basic, but kitchen was well equiped, wifi fast and people interesting. It is on the main road which is handy when you go for a night out.
