Excellent stay here. Great value, really tidy with great facilities and a very central location. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. Rooms are very comfortable and the showers are super! Nice and relaxed atmosphere in common rooms and lockers to store bags when you check out.

This is probably the best hostel we stayed in in our year travelling in NZ, we had a nice double room with a great view, bathroom straight across from us and a nice quiet and clean kitchen and living area next to us that felt like having our own apartment. Good value and highly recommended.

I stayed in a spacious double room with shared facilities with... More
