We stayed at the hostel for quite a while and had a really good time, no complaints here! Great people running the hostel and very friendly staff. Always helpful and giving tips on where to go and what to do :). Location was good, not too far a walk to the supermarket or the postoffice/bank/restartmall/central bus station and the surroundings like Sumner and Lyttelton/Diamond Habor were doable by bus and really lovely.
Overall, the hostel has a great atmosphere! The picknick table outside is a great place to meet everyone in the hostel. I would come back here some day :).
