Liked: I had a good experience at Silverfern. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The rooms were not anything special, but--given the price you pay to stay here--it is a good deal. Location was great. I also liked that the hostel had complimentary tea & coffee and vending machines to purchase from 24 hours a day. I recommend it and will go back there next time.

Disliked: No dishwasher

Liked: The hostel is well-designed,and one of the cheapest.Very modern with good vibe and onsite facilities. Separate room with toilets and showers is down the corridor. People were nice, too. Reception at the ground floor works 7amto 10.30pm a day. No complaints, except bring your own locks for their storage lockers.

Disliked: Only minus: in hostels people are usually staying for vacation, so they often are awake in late evening.

Liked: I stayed in a shared room for three nights and liked it very much. The hostel is modern and clean. The rooms were simple and the beds were very comfortable. I liked that there were safes for your personal belongings in the hostel. You can use the kitchen with fridges and some computers with an Internet access for free. The hostel is located close to the central bus station, which is good and close to Sky Tower and the Casino All in all, the value for money was very good and I would recommend it.

Liked: The dorm was spacious and had comfortable beds, the kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils. There is some nice cafes and coffee shops near the hostel and the bars and clubs of K Road are near by. The manager was friendly and he helped me sort out my bus pass.
