Not a very exciting and warm welcome at all. I felt a stranger since the first moment. Although the man running the place gave me the required information and was honest.
Rooms, beds and furniture are extremely old and not well looked after. It is true that the price is not expensive, but in any other town in New Zealand you get wonderful things for exactly the same price. Kitchen facilities and common areas a bit poor.
Location is alright, although when people are talking outside, it is the end of your sleep.
