William Over thinks…

"the en-suite we had for the 6 bed dorm which was large with plenty of space especially considering other hostel dorms we had been in"

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.

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!

27 December 2010 Louise would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the sanctury dorms for the ladies. I liked that each room had their own bathroom and I liked the light bulbs around the mirrors in the rooms.

Disliked: I found some of the staff rude and unfriendly. I felt that some had a 'too cool for school' attitude which contributed to feeling that they thought they were above some of the guests. After travelling around S America where the hostel workers are very friendly and accomodating this was disapointing.
