Very friendly and helpful staff. Even give you a tour round the facilities. Helped me book my skydive and gave me discount on a sail trip, Fearless. The kitchen is quite big, and the hostel is one street away from pak n save. They even let you bring alcohol in which the kiwi experience and stray hostels we stayed at didn't. The room was warm with underfloor heating. We had cheap pizzas from reception on one night for just $5.90. It even had a sauna, and Wi-Fi was reasonably priced, $4 24hours. When we left they even dropped us at the I-site.
