Paid only NZ24 per night :) for a 5 beds female dorm :) The room has satisfactory space and the heater works well! Free hot pool (closes at 7pm) and popcorn (at reception) and a wide range of movies :) the hostel is really cosy!! The tv room has sufficient room with cable tv and kitchen is oh well spacious and well equipped! There's a cleaner who Comes everyday and he helps maintain the kitchen real clean! Dining area provided as well! Value for money definitely yes!! Just a short walk to supermarket n eateries (5mins or less) location: next to YHA!
Only shortcoming is there's only one dryer that works and operating hrs for laundry is from 8am-9pm; auto power shut down there after :(
