Liked: Safe key cards are used, rooms are clean and the central location. Close to Sky Tower, Britomart and town hall along with Civic theatre.. Has a bus stop at the main road. Supermarkets are nearby too. Restaurants and pubs nearby too. Kitchen spacious and clean too.

Disliked: Luggage storage is chargeble. Had booked the same accommodation for 22-23, checked out 24 early to go for Jet boat ride. And had thought its free luggage storage since check out time is 10 am while boat ride is 11 am.

Liked: Very central location.

Disliked: The showers were an absolute joke. You have to keep pressing the button every ten seconds for the water to continue to flow, I say flow, I should say blast. They blast high pressure water out what looks like a broken valve.Also the hostel had that horrible lack of personality that all base hostels have. Its like they converted old office blocks into hostels

Liked: Facilities were clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was close to all local amenties e.g supermarket and local milkbar. The Globe pub also provided a perfect venue to meet other backpackers with plenty of fun themed nights.

Disliked: Some of the matress's probably needed replacing. Maybe the introduction of a small lamp in rooms where there are no windows.

Liked: Great location, lots of help and resources for planning further travels, friendly and knowledgeable staff, decent rooms, very nice large kitchen/eating area, nice lounge to hang out in, movie rooms, computers for use, stocked vending machines and food available.

Disliked: Not a fan of the push showers, but at least they were warm! They advertised a fridge in every room but my dorm was lacking one - the kitchen fridge was just fine, however.
