This place is what is - perfectly located little hostel that is cheap for the location. Rooms are adequate as are the bathrooms. It suited me well because I was travelling alone and could duck out and back constantly throughout the day. Because I had my own room I could also read or watch telly for some down time, and I had a view of the lake on my second stay. I had to cancel one of two nights on my second stay and the nice guy on the counter went to some effort to arrange this for me without penalty given that I had not booked it direct. In fact, the staff were always very friendly and they always looked busy. The only downside for me was that the room with the best view was a bit noisy because there is a pub almost directly below the room and a market going on directly out the front which would actually be a plus for many people but I was so tired from having just completed the Milford Track that I slept in the comfortable bed well anyway. The only other minor complaint was that the place does have a bit of a funny smell to it, perhaps it is their cleaning products...
