Compared to other hostels in Oz and NZ (YHA Wellington in NZ is amazing) this one doesn't really live up to the mark. It's quite old, staff aren't that friendly, not that many showers and toilets to share, and it's pretty far out of town. You also don't get free WiFi here (even as a YHA member - which we thought was standard. Apparently not though)
The rooftop is the selling point for this hostel, which has lovely views, and there is a nice little supermarket right next door, also the bed was one of the comfier ones we've come across in hostels. We were in a private double though and the room was very hot. We had to have the door open, the window open and the fan on at all times just to make it tolerable.
But hey, it's a hostel not a hotel. Nowhere is perfect.
