Stayed here for a couple of nights while in Hamilton. It was quiet, had excellent wifi and the kitchen had more than enough supplies. Staff were nice and friendly. Very helpful when we couldn't get into the hostel as our key didn't work.

Really nice and helpful staff. Nice big lounge area with comfy couches and a balcony. Kitchen is fine and a good size but some of the stove tops didn't work. Bathrooms are good but found it a bit strange that a religious radio station is pumped in through speakers throughout the day.

The hostel itself is very homey. It had a large selection of DVDs with a nice sized TV in the shared room. My friend and I had booked separately and was going to be in different rooms but they upgraded us to a twin for free. The wifi doesn't reach all of the rooms but the couch is very comfortable...

After having a fall through in plans I was left with no where to go late at night and I googled hostels in Hamilton and this one came up. I turned up quite late at night unexpected and asked if they had a room and luckily they did. Really really nice staff and my room was very tidy and had... More

There are signs saying the hostel is undergoing earthquake improvement renovations. The double room had no windows and one skylight with no way to block the light. Our room became so hot we had to sleep with the door open, which increased the noise of people walking past. The staff were relaxed and helpful, there was free wifi, and there... More

Relaxed and homely feel. Kind of like shared accommodation. Big open plan kitchen-lounge which is great for socialising. Comfy couches to chill on and a huge selection of movies to choose from at no charge. Internet is fast, unlimited and free! Rooms are spacious and secure. The beds are definitely the comfiest mattresses you'll come across in a hostel. The... More

This place just isn't good. I stayed in hostels for months throughout the country and this was the worst of them. The place is all under construction. Literally every wall is bare and you can still see the screws. The room I stayed in had a ceiling sunlight that was propped open and it was COLD! There was no way... More

My friends and I aren't sure what to think about this hostel. It was a very informal check in process, although the staff member was lovely and friendly. The beds were comfortable but the rooms smelt musty and old. The showers were lovely and hot, and the bathrooms were kept outstandingly clean so that was really good. The kitchen was... More
