Liked: The owner is very friendly and the other staff are friendly and helpful. Cheap ($5 at time of writing) pick-up/drop-off from airport. Single beds rather than bunk beds. Ideal for a stop-over or before/after flights.

Liked: They picked is up from the airport at midnight, and had the heater in the room on when we got there. Multiple bathrooms. Very quiet hostel. Close to the airport for those with early/late flights. Dorm rooms aren't available after 10:0PM so people can sleep before early flights (we were in a double). Towels and sheets were provided. The kitchen was spacious, had coffee/tea making supplies and milk available for free, and had the standard appliances plus what looked like a panini press.

Disliked: Wifi wasn't free ($3/30 minutes or $7/day). But this is not exclusive to this hostel, and they had a payphone available for use from which you could call toll free numbers (plus tons of pamphlets so you don't necessarily have to do research online).

Liked: This is a great little hostel perfect for staying before your flight. Not a hotel but good buget friendly family run accommodation. They will run you to the airport in plenty of time for a small fee.

Disliked: WiFi a little overpriced

Liked: I think the best thing about this experience was the hospitality of Jay and Eugene, the people who work there. It is the way people give themselves to being welcoming and making someone feel at home, whatever the relative quality of the Lodge's other features, that provide the best definition of good hospitality.

Disliked: The noise of the aeroplanes during the night, but one can't avoid this is one needs to stay close the the airport.

Liked: The prime reason I chose this hostel was because of its proximity to the airport. It really is great if you've just arrived or just about to leave. The hostel has a swimming pool, a large living room/dining room area. The kitchen was ok.

Disliked: The hostel may be potentially a little old and therefore the walls are thin subjecting you to listen to anyone's conversation in the adjoining room and the floor boards are creaky which doesn't make well for a good night's sleep before a very early flight. I wouldn't recommend staying here if you're flight is very early and your intention is to catch a good sleep before you fly out.

Liked: This is a great place to stay after a long flight. It is quiet and Scott and the team are helpful and friendly. Pick up from the airport was an advantage and wifi was unlimited for $7NZD per day.

Disliked: There was nothing that I did not like. However it was quiet, so if you are hoping to meet people it may be worth going straight into the centre. This was great for me to get my bearings and a good night sleep before moving on.
