Stayed here in March 2013 for 2 nights in an ensuite double with my husband. Small very clean facility quite up to YHA standards and MUCH better than most of the noisy and somewhat unkempt BBH facilities we stayed at during a 7 week drive around both NZ Islands this year. From here on when we travel we will try for YHA first if we are staying in a hostel.The hostel is in a quiet area just a short walk over a bridge into downtown and right next to a great marina with bar restaurant. The owner is also the manager and is somewhat of an odd duck but is certainly not rude or unhelpful.The rooms and kitchen are clean and the outdoor patio and dining area are quite nice. The outside loo did have a covered walkway I believe for those not in an ensuite. There is a small supermarket with wine and beer just across the street and the hostel is in a working class residential area . Would easily stay here again. Quite a few wineries ouside of town which do require a car to access with wonderful weekend music and lunches.
