17 September 2012 Man Kit would recommend this property

Liked: The location is excellent, airport bus stop just a few minutes walk, also close to SkyCity coach terminal, that would be great if you preparing to travel to other cities like me. Easy walk to ferry terminal, restaurants, shopping centre, supermarket. Room and toilet are clean! In short a good value for money!

Disliked: Just the kitchen is a bit small and crowd at peak hours. Many people smoke outside the entrance, it would be bad if you don't like it.

15 August 2012

Liked: Cheap - but you get what you pay for

Disliked: It was filthy. The bathrooms were not only dirty, but decrepit. The rooms has as many beds crammed in as possible with no ventilation. People were nosiy and inconsiderate in dorms, apparently it seemed acceptable to turn on lights and have loud conversations at 3am despite the fact that everybody else in the room was sleeping.

Liked: The Staff were the best. They were so helpful. They would answer questions, go out of their way to provide the best service. Stored your bags. The people that stayed there as well were nice and friendly and I was in basically an all male dorm (even though female). The wireless is awesome. Really secure, they constantly had people cleaning the bathrooms, kitchen, common areas. Not squeaky beds, so comfortable I didnt want to get up.

Disliked: Only one plug/outlet in a 10 bed dorm. But if you took your electronic piece downstairs they would charge it behind the desk for you.

Liked: I have travelled A LOT and can compare this hostel to many others I have stayed in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, my valuables were secure, I felt very safe the entire time and the atmosphere (which is what's most important to me) was comfortable and relaxed.

Disliked: Could have been cleaner, but for the rate I paid, I got pretty much what I expected.

Liked: very clean with a well equiped kitchen. Towels were available for use and extra blankets were there if needed.

Disliked: security precautions were in place (could not use the lift with out a key) but there were obviously ways around them as a randome person ended up sleeping in our room one night!
