14 February 2014 Marc would recommend this property

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.

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.

Liked: It was cheap and the staff was friendly. It was pretty close to the Intercity bus stop, and right off Queen Street.

Disliked: The room was small and crowded and there were no lockers in it. The bathrooms weren't great. The hostel felt a bit old and dated, and the reception area was quite dark.

09 January 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location is awesome, 24 hour access and staff available. Cheap and good enough for the money, would stay again

Disliked: rooms are too stuffy, windows don't open and in the morning the aircon started switching off so it got extremely hot in the room. Room could have 1 bunk bed less and some space to put bags - there was no space anywhere to put large suitcases so they stacked up in front of the bunks and it was hard to climb up.

06 December 2012 Tomasz would recommend this property

Liked: The best was the location, five minutes walk from bus terminal and a minute walk to bus to the airport

Disliked: It is an old office so you cannot open windows, there is only central air conditioning and sometimes is stuffy. There is only one shower on floor and two toilets, and they aren't very clean.
