Not a pleasant stay. Felt more like a prison than a hostel or motor lodge. Thin Walls - not great trying to get some sleep after a tiring days driving only to hear next door having sex. The walk to the toilet was a mission throughout the night. You'd expect showers to be included in the price not have to pay 50c for 7minutes hot water. The place had no character, unfriendly and the kitchen was filthy! It felt unsafe.
I couldn't wait to leave and wished I driven the extra few hours to queenstown even in the pouring rain!!!
