I stayed in a single ensuite room on weekend of October 27th. The location is great- 5 mins into town, lake, supermarket and also en route to the hot pools and huka falls walkway- about 15 mins to start of walkway.
Staff here are superb and will do anything to help. Super friendly and can provide an abundance of information regarding activities and things to do. They can also book things for you too.
Rooms are simple but fine. Busy sociable hostel - so don't expect an overly quiet stay here. Very friendly place to stay and facilities are good.
Free coffee is actually very nice too!!
Overall a great stay and highly recommend!
