Liked: Was made to feel welcome by the staff. Room was a good size for 1 person needing their own space. Good location.

Disliked: The sink in the room was very small and you nearly had to have your head touching the mirror just to brush your teeth. I think a tv or something else in the common room would be a good touch also..

Liked: The staff were very helpful with recommending things to do and see. I stayed in the twin single room and it was very clean. There was a sink in the room which helped since there was only one shower and toilet shared between four rooms.

Disliked: Parking was a bit tight, not many spaces. We only had one shower and toilet to share between four rooms. You get one hour of wifi to use for free, after that you have to pay and it did not work in our room. The kitchen was a bit messy, but there were lots of people there at the time. The location is fine if you have a car, but if you are walking it takes a long time to get to the mount.

Liked: Had a dorm that seemed quite new.

Disliked: No-one else in dorm which is in some respects good but doesn't allow so much chance of meeting people. (another person I did meet also was alone in a big dorm) No hooks at all in dorm - very spartan, only bunk units No shelf in shower room to put shampoo on Very low lighting in room, impossible to read! Only a light for upper level not lower Little improvements could make a big difference to comfort

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful. Nice and clean hostel with lots to do. The tv room was a great socializing stop. And the room I was in was big enough with lots of plug points! Drinking in hostel finishes at 10pm which equalled a nice quiets night sleep if you need one!

Disliked: The bathroom could do with updating, was clean but because of age of it made it feel dirty. Fridge was broken so my food went off.

Liked: Really good place, 100% backpackers vibe, good rooms, nice atmosphere, close to supermarket, beach, 10 min walk to Mt Manganui centre. Thumbs up! I will come back there soon:)

Disliked: It's not exactly in the center of Mt Manganui, but come on, 10 minutes walk is not a disaster right? :) Anyway, it's close to the beach and to the supermarket, bus stop is right outside so if you are lazy you can go to Mt Manganui centre by bus
