Backpacking / gap year, Romantic getaway

Liked: It was conveniently located in the centre of town, and the price of the room was ok.

Disliked: The forced $20 deposit, on my last day in New Zealand, that I could not get back on my creditcard but only as $20 note, leaving me with $20 when I had just gotten rid of all my NZ dollars. The wifi was really expensive compared to other hostels, $10 instead of $5, and they would not detract it from my deposit.

Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Being able to leave. Good location though

Disliked: First of all we nearly walked past as we weren't expecting a large group of.middle aged men to be smoking and drinking in the door way. Inside it didn't get much better with unhelpful staff, the lift not working, the thinnest mattresses I've ever had and a smoky atmosphere throughout. The bathrooms were dirty and I have never been so glad to have only one night in a place. Theft also seems to be a problem.
