Stayed at in a 6-share for three days. Incredibly large room with plenty of room to move around. The kitchen/eating area is also roomy and sociable with lots of powerpoints and free wifi, with cool music playing in the background. Close to Courtenay Place and the CBD, and public buses. Staff were okay, but the hostel itself was easily the... More

Urban hostel, great in pretty much every aspect: - Clean, - Central, - Close to the sea - Cheap There is a countdown(?) on the other side of the road, which was open until midnight. Nothing what you can credit the hostel for, but nice anyway :)

An urban hostel with every possible facility one will need. located in a prominent ideal location, close to streets popular for nightlife. Walking distance from a supermarket and extremely near the Te Papa Museum, probably one of the greatest museum globally.

Four of us stayed the night as we were attending a party and didn't want to have to drive home. Room was great, beautiful view of the sea, plenty large enough, very clean and in a great location. We couldn't have asked for more.

A group of four of us stayed here in September. The place is brilliantly located, over the road from a supermarket and right in the centre of town. The staff are some of the friendliest I've ever encountered in a hostel, and the facilities are vast and exceptional. Beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were clean (even if they were... More

We stayed here one night, and found it clean, great location, and helpful and friendly staff. There's a supermarket opposite and bars and restaurants nearby. We got the bus from the hostel to the ferry port the next day. All in all, would recommend!

The staff were helpful but could really do with some smiling training. The 2 ladies at the front desk looked like they were having a bad day. Location is central to everything. Great facilities. I would stay there again.

Due to the hostel being very full only room available was a private room. The room was very hot and you couldn't open the window as very close to some kitchens so very smelly! However the reception were very helpful and professional. The bathrooms were very clean and they also had hair dryers and GHD straighteners! In a good location,... More
