I stayed here for a few nights and enjoyed my stay - although it was nearly empty for most of our stay and didn't quite have the same social vibe of most backpackers, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a good location(close to long st) but a bit quieter than most hostels. Although the staff were not particularly friendly on arrival, and would crowd round the fire together when paying customers were left cold on the other side of the room, they did deal with a difficult situation with another guest very professionally and we were very grateful for that. It can be quite noisy in some of the rooms - it is a large, old house and one of the dorms is located under the stairs which is noisy with people going up and down during the nights. There are also only two showers (girls' at least) which wasn't a problem when we were there, but I imagine isn't enough when the hostel is full.
