We booked a private room for myself and 2 other friends as we were doing a road trip across the North Island. The hostel's location is great (close to all the major attractions) and the staff is super friendly. The room was close to a hotel room with an ensuite bathroom, a bar fridge and even electric blankets. The room was colourful, clean and tidy. I've travelled with friends to most parts in Australia and stayed at hostels which were pretty decent, but this place tops it all.
