When I first came to NZ I booked a few nights in this hostel but I ended up staying for 3 months! Now that I have been travelling for 2 months all over NZ I can say that this is by far the best hostel I've stayed in. It is big enough so that there's always someone around that you can talk to or do something with but also small enough for it not to feel too crowded so that you don't get to know anyone. The location is great, it is very clean and all the the guests seem to be very well behaved so things don't get too crazy. The thing I enjoyed most about this place is the very friendly staff that makes you feel welcome and at home. If you are looking for a place that you can call your New Zealand home, this is it!
