Liked: staff very helpful. in reception there were so many leaflets for activities one could do or place to visit- in case you had a spare few minutes. we had no problems with noise even though Frienz in is the city centre. toilets and showers were super clean at all times of the day and night.

Disliked: the only thing i can possibly think of is that there was a lot of door slamming throughout the night.

Liked: Free internet and Sky TV. Security conscious (locked main door and floor doors after 10pm)

Disliked: Very noisy - the doors to each floor slam shut if allowed to (which is most of the time by people coming back late). It is quite hot in summer so windows have to be left open which is then noisy if the room is streetside.

Liked: The location is simply the best you can get. The common area is nice and homey, and it is open all night. You are allowed to drink your own alcohol. Rooftop is nice touch, just like the PCs, some of which are pretty fast. Kitchen is big enough and showers are nice and modern. Staff at reception is nice and helpful. Pub crawl and other drinking events are massive and fun, aand also great value. Good if you travel alone.

Disliked: They really should offer free wifi, that would give this hostel a real edge. More plugs are needed in the rooms, or at least (more) extension cords.

Liked: The rooftop patio was awesome and a great way to meet people!

Disliked: The bedding had stains on it although I know it was clean so it wasn't that big of a deal.

Liked: Really nice hostel. A bit expensive maybe but it is well worth the money. We stayed in a double room and the bed was really comfortable. The location is perfect. Very close to a big supermarket and it is easy to walk to the harbour. Really clean kitchen with good cooking facilities.

Disliked: It was a little bit expensive, but everything is in New Zealand so in comparison with other hostels you get good value for your money.
