I have never written a review about anything, but decided to do so, as I lived in the Hotel for 5 months, from August 2012 to December 2012, when working for a company in Palmerston North on contract. I chose tripadvisor because there are a few reviews about the Hotel on here, plus I stayed there again for 3 nights this week. From the outside it looks old, and it is, but the accommodation is superb budget homeliness.The place is everything the reviews say it is, except for the last review, (nodrub) I find the last review very hard to Fathom. Seven reviews say it's amazing, the 8th tells everyone it's Awful, must be something we don't know about. The Hotel certainly isn't dirty or noisy, as living there told me that. It is far better than the normal Backpackers. Gary and his crew will go out of their way to make your stay relaxed and welcome. Thanks again Gary and staff.
