Liked: Nice facilities and a good, large kitchen.

Disliked: The toilets were in a very poor state one night (more likely a guests fault judging by the cleanliness of the rest of the hostel) and the Wi-Fi was very slow and week in the rooms.

Liked: Good location to stay. Rooms are quite big, which is nice, bathrooms are relatively clean. Outstanding staff - unfortunately, my sweater had gotten lost at the hostel and it only appeared after I had left to Queenstown, so the guys managed to put it on an intercity bus, so that I could collect it in Queenstown. Thank you so much again!

Disliked: Security lockers IN the rooms would be nice - anyway, there are security lockers on the hallway, for which you however need to pay in order to deposit your stuff.

Liked: Was cheap for New Zealand, friendly staff members.

Disliked: Needed more utensils/plates in kitchen... Lockers had to pay for every time you went into them. Wifi was $5 per 24 hours. It was an alright hostel, just nothing to rave about.
