cheap but.......

They didn't tell me I was in a mixed dorm. I only found out when I woke up the next morning to find all my room mates were men.. So I din't hang around very long.

Dorm room had an en-suite which was a positive..

Not good in general though!! Would pay the extra and stay at the Cambridge.

The Cafe was great though, quite inexpensive and they have separate kitchens for backpackers to use.

There was a group of 10 that went down to Wellington and there were only 8 beds, we didn't stay there we ended up staying at the Cambridge Hotel which was nice and clean anyway, maybe next time there will be more beds
