This is the second time I've stayed at a Nomads hostel in New Zealand, and I'm noticing a pattern. These places are real backpacker hubs with all that is great and terrible about that. On the plus side, the place is well staffed and the receptionists are friendly, efficient and helpful. There is also a certain basic standard which you know the accommodation will meet. I stayed in a 6-person dorm (having paid for a 10-person) and it was great to be in one that was en-suite (a rarity in NZ hostels). My bed wasn't the most comfortable ever, but it wasn't terrible.
The hostel organizes a lot of social activities. When I was cooking dinner one night, there was a pub quiz going on, which took over the whole kitchen area and made it hard to eat there. If you are with a big group of friends looking to get drunk, you'll love this place. If you're by yourself, you probably would be better off at a quieter hostel.
