My b/f and I are in our mid twenties and we stayed at the Bay Adventurer for 2 nights in April of 2008. We booked a studio room though the hostel's website. This was the best backpackers we stayed at during our trip in New Zealand.
RECEPTION: No problems here. Our reservation was as we had requested and we actually ended up with a slightly cheaper rate - always a bonus.
ROOM: Great room on ground level. Big, clean, and private. Room had bunk beds (double on bottom single on top type), a sofa, table with two chairs and a kitchette. Kitchette had everything you'd need to prepare meals - stove top, microwave, kettle, etc. Lots of dishes and shelf space. Flat screen TV with thea couple free to air channels. Great for news/weather reports etc.
BATHROOM: Very nice. Clean and large. Nice shower with good pressure. Window and fan.
LOCATION: Great location. Easy walking distance to restaurants, the pier/beach, and a liquor store right on the corner.
OTHER: Did not use the common area so I cannot comment on it other than it looked clean. They also have laundry facilities available and off-street parking. There is a hot-tub and bbq for guest use.
