Liked: Unbelievable backpackers. More like a hotel. Around the corner from lots of bars and about a 25 minute walk into town. Extremely clean and quiet, plus the staff are great.

Disliked: WiFi is pricey compared to other places. It's decent though and can handle Skype etc.

Liked: My family and I like the atmosphere. Casual and easy. The house and the room have a high ceiling, so it's so spacious. Our room was next to the shower room and toilet, but noise didn't bother our sleep.

Disliked: Only thing I disliked was that rubbish bin in the kitchen was so full at the second morning.

Liked: One of the owners, Campbell, has been very friendly and accommodating with the requests of the guests. Not to mention the regular movie nights, walk-around excursions, BBQs and other various activities contribute to the cosy atmosphere.

Disliked: Wifi leaves something to be desired. I took it as an introduction to the NZ ISP services.

City break

Liked: The owner/manager was friendly enough and enough. Nicely decorated (recently refurbished). There wasn't much atmosphere despite it being sold out! It would be an amazing location in the summer, but does suck in the winter.

Disliked: I would have stayed longer if they had free or cheap Wi-Fi and breakfast, but they didn't. I think it was $1 for 1 hour, $7 for 24 hours and $24 for 7 days of Internet... Unbelievable... I moved to a hostel on K Road that was cheaper, with free Wi-Fi & PCs, and breakfast every day, and found it equally satisfactory.

Liked: Nice garden and balconies with beautiful views of the city center and skytower. Quiet location but at the same time near to the city center and to K Road and Ponsonby Rd. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hostel seems to be very safe. For late arrivals (at night) they have a combination box outside the entrance where they put the roomkey for you. The sunday I stayed there they had a "social event" in the evening: everybody cooked a meal for dinner to share with the others (free to join the event or not). Thanks to the pretty small size of the hostel (compared to yha and others in the center) there is a nice atmosphere. In the lounge there is a guitar and a piano.

Disliked: Kitchen is not the best and the eating area could be a little more cozy, it's a little bold. Wifi is expensive.
