Liked: great passionate owners, well presented place, and neat themes

Disliked: it was quite expensive- the most ive ever paid for a double room anywhere in NZ, even a very nice one in greymouth was $68 so $75 was a little bit much really. Maybe it was because i booked through a middle man' company?? anyways its a very nice place so will still recommend it :)

Liked: Very cute hostel! Well-stocked kitchen with dishware and other amenities, large communal area with tables for eating, couches for hanging out, etc. Queen bed was very comfortable

Disliked: Room got VERY cold at night! They do provide hot water bottles and blankets, but I was freezing any time I wasn't in bed (stayed in May). Also, internet is slow and spotty on both computers, so you don't really get your money's worth if paying for internet access.

Liked: Awesome staff - owner of the property was very nice and friendly. Gave us a nice tour of the facility.Several rooms were open, so she gave us a choice of rooms. The room was clean and had a view of the ocean. Towels were provided for free.The communal area was very quaint and conducive to meeting other travelers. Open kitchen and eating/lounging area. Several fridges and kitchen appeared to be well-stocked with cooking tools.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Great feel about the place with lovely sea views and very helpful owners.

Disliked: It's a bit noisy as it is on the main road and a bit far out of town if you don't have transport - these are minor quibbles though, it's a great backpackers

Liked: Loved the birdsong decor and the fact that the rooms are named after New Zealand birds. Comfy couches in the common area, a great view of the coast for sunset and friendly staff.

Disliked: It's right off the highway, which I felt made walking into town a bit awkward, so I drove even though it's not far.
