Liked: Great location, close to Fergburgers ;) Good if you like to party.

Disliked: A bit noisy everyday of the week, which can be a little disturbing if you need to get up early. And the rooms isn't the cleanest...but it's ok.

Liked: The internet area was nice, there were many computers and they were also quite cheap. The beds were nice and hostel's location was good.

Disliked: The hostel wasn't so clean and the bar's music was too noisy. Tv lounge was small and the atmosphere itself was quite poor. Staff was also busy and sometimes have to wait long time to get their attention, but they were nice still.

Liked: Good location, free breakfast, helpful staff

Disliked: Way too many people packed into this place. Rooms and hallways are narrow and dingy. The shower is tiny with a timer that turns it off after a few seconds - really awkward to wash your hair.

Liked: location

Disliked: mostly everything, dirty toilets, dirty kitchen, knowbody cares about the place. Like most Base's around New Zealand. Won't be staying with them again. Just boring souless places never to be slept in. Stay with independently owned hostels, far better.

Liked: Not a lot. Good location I suppose...

Disliked: Where do I start? Unhelpful staff, dirty rooms, no atmosphere etc. I've stayed in some pretty bad places but this is by far the worst. Avoid like the plague!
