Stayed here and wasn't overly impressed. I should have chosen another hostel. As a YHA member I thought I was being sensible by staying here. It's a little way out of town and a bit of a walk from the i-Site. The rooms were average, bathroom wasn't great and the wifi signal would only stretch to the lounge - not... More

There is not much choice of hostels in Gisborne, but definitely would recommend the YHA. It is very quiet if you want to just relax in piece for a day or two. Rooms are spacious and clean, same goes for the bathrooms. Very well equipped and large kitchen. Cozy living room area with tv and free choice of dvds. Nice... More

Well, there's not much to say. I stayed there one night in a double room and had the next day approximately 20 bites all over my body. Wasn't a nice experience and I didn't expect this to happen in New Zealand. This happened in August 2015 so I' don't know whether or not the owner did something against this problem.

New owners are kind and friendly. It is 10 min walking distance from city centre. Balcony and other facilities are nice and clean. Kitchen is handy. Even at the summer time, the room was a bit cold at night. It can be freezing in winter.

We stay one night in this backpacker and it was a great experience. Room a large and clean (dorms of 5). Facilities well maintained, even if the shower box was a little bit small. We check late and leave early on the morning and the staff was very friendly. good localisation, not too far from city center

This was a lovely hostel to visit, nice showers, good pressure, compfy beds, nice size TV room, helpful staff and an average size kitchen. Designed not to take huge amounts of people which a I think is good. Close to town centre. Enjoy!

I had planned to stay there a night, but kept extending my stay (and could have stayed even longer). Slept like a baby, very clean and tidy place, lovely and helpful hosts. Since it was low season, it was not very busy, so the evenings in front of the tv at the heated living room felt cozy and home-like. Close... More
