Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Location is the only good thing, but there are many hostels in the same area aswell

Disliked: There are way too many rules for a backpackers place. Check out time is 10am, and cleaning guys come at 11, no matter if there's still people sleeping in the room. Kitchen is awful small for the amount of people they host. Rooms are also super small, I stayed in a 10 bed room with NO SPACE for your baggage (or electricity plugs either). Wifi is pay-for and it is awfuly slow (you can go to the street and have free better wifi). Honestly, just go around the area and you will find much better value for your money

Liked: Very central, pretty clean

Disliked: Atmosphere felt cliquey and unfriendly. Long-stay residents take up loads of space in the dorms, making it a bit uncomfortable to stay there.

Liked: The person that greeted us at the reception was really lovely - and the location of the hostel was fantastic! :)

Disliked: This property did not seem as tidy or as comfortable as previous backpackers I had been too. It was not quite as laid-back/relaxing as others.

Trip Type:
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.
