good location, decent facilities - if the place was busier it might be hard to get in the washrooms though. comfortable lounge and useful kitchen / food / luggage storage. attached bar downstairs is open to the public too and shows mainly sports.

I couldn't last longer than two hours here it was disgusting. The room was incredibly damp with absolutely no ventilation in the room or the kitchen which it is connected to, meaning all of the steam and smoke from people cooking fills the room. The bathrooms were filthy with the bin over flowing with tissues on the floor. The mattress... More

We arrived at midnight and tried to check in. There was two names on the reservation for a dorm room and the guy had no idea how to find the second name on the system even though I showed him the email etc. He had to go get someone to help. This took over half an hour. Then we got... More

This hostel is a budget backpackers (the decor is a bit run down) but its great value for your money and includes a free small meal each night. You can upgrade to a full size portion for a few dollars. The hostel is centrally located, near the bottom of Queen Street and has plenty of activities.

The worst hostel I stayed in in New Zealand. You get what you paid for. The kitchen in the apartment is small and dirty, the hostel is no really clean. The staff was ok. I wouldn't recommend going there if you can afford a bit more.

Price was honnest, the atmosphere was nice with travelers from all over the world, but there is a lot of noise at night because of the bar downstairs. Beds were comfortable and I had a dormitory with 4 beds which was nice. Probably a very good backpack if you're looking for friends and party.

The hostel itself is pretty gross. I'd just flown in from London so got a private room, a complete rip off and not worth the money at all. The room was inside a little apartment, it only had a bed, no chair, or table or anything to put my stuff on except for the floor, didn't even have a window... More

I have never visited such a disgusting hostel. My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights, we tried getting a refund but were refused. Showers are gross, beds are thin, rooms smell like foist and floor is damp. Manager's rude. Definitely won't go back here.
