"Walk out the front door and EVERYTHING is there; shops, bars. Walk round the corner and you're at the beach or the Mount itself. Surprisingly kept very clean!"

Liked: Walk out the front door and EVERYTHING is there; shops, bars. Walk round the corner and you're at the beach or the Mount itself. Surprisingly kept very clean!

Disliked: Although advertised as FREE wifi, you have to keep going back to request an access code after every 500mb used; ridiculous really... I'm guessing the idea is to use a mobile phone only as it rinses less data. However fair play because it's not the Hotel's fault, lucky to even get any element of free WiFi since Kiwi internet companies are notoriously tight with internet data caps and they rip the nation off... So the Hotels is doing the best it can perhaps. Hard to get a decent nights sleep since it's noisy until early hours of the morning because of the tenants throwing parties in the kitchen, HiFi & speakers are situated outside, just becomes a piss take. There is a noise curfew after 12 midnight but nobody gives an F about that. Lighting in the rooms was shocking. Top bunk and the lights are right above your head, no dimmer switch! Washer & dryer right outside the room door making a racket! En Suite bathroom, the sink was so small it might as well have not been there!

Liked: A great backpackers hostel in the perfect location to enjoy the mount, the facilities were spotlessly clean throughout my stay which was fantastic! The staff are so friendly and helpful with everything, and the hostel facilities are good too, with sky tv and a nice outside deck with BBQ perfect for the summer. A great place to meet other travelers and to enjoy some of NZs best surfing right near the beach!! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Disliked: This is definitely not a quiet hostel, the mount has a lively nightlife and the hostel is right among it, with young drinking backpackers taking over the communal areas in the evenings! (perfect if you're looking for a good night out) but don't expect a quiet stay.
