“Home but away!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

This small backpackers gets you by surprise! nothing flashy, no the big fuzz or the bars as the big ones...But what an atmosphere! just like a family, everybody was cooking to share! everyone gets to party together, the owner will help you for anything you would need. Nice BBQ area, just such a homy and relax,quiet place(even close to CBD) .
The bedroom look like old fashion alpine chalet with the wood. bunk bed in the six bed dorm.
we had a locker as well (it was very safe, as it is in NZ).
They sell some snacks at the reception very cheap ($1.5 can of coke)
I really loved it! David, thanks for the tips for the Sky tower discount, and the cheap drinks at the downtown pubs! Really appreciated. thanks for everything! I'll be back!
I forgot to mention the 50cts for the hot shower, it is unusual but quite responsible for the water saving and the value stays way better than the other hostel around.

Room Tip: the 6 bed dorm is really good value but very often full!
