I stayed here for 2months in June and July while I looked for a place to live more permanently.
I ended up meeting other longtermers, and was upgraded to a longtermers room, with an ensuite.
They offer Work for Accomodation, but that is pot luck, if your around when people leave, which happens often.
Admittedly the kitchen is not great- but realisitically, due to the logistics of the building it cannot be changed, so they have more than compensated for this by offering everyone a free meal at dinner time and free tea and coffee all day, which is a hell of alot more than some of the other hostels offer.
The location is great, just at the bottom of Cuba Street, there is a bar on-site that do $5 drinks and favourite... 241 meals on Mondays- so 2 Steak and Chips for only 20bucks!!!!
Theres alway things going on in the evening, such as Blend Bingo, KillerPool, Quiz Night and they had just started day trips as I was leaving too. I think they were doing a Zealandia day for $10- when its usually $28!
The staff are awesome and you cant really get much better than Steve on reception.... he does loves a hug!
Would definitely reccomend it for Backpackers :)
