Liked: Only a little out of the main area so not a lot of drunken folk stumbling around.

Disliked: There was no ladder to the top bunk, was a bit of a climbing exercise getting up and down.

Liked: Bumbles is just 2mins walk out of the main busy drag, so it's close enough to stroll in, but far enough so you don't get town noise. The staff are very helpful, you get discounts if you book trips through them. The rooms are really clean and the kitchen is good place to meet other travellers - it is next to the common room too. People pop by the hostel every night with flyers about what is happening in town. The views across the lake to the mountains are stunning.

Disliked: Reception closes at 7.30pm at night, which can be a bit awkward. Just need to keep it in mind if you want to book anything/have any questions.

Liked: Probably the best hostel in Oz and NZ I've seen so far. The rooms are very nice, there are even chairs and table in dorms which is very good, kitchen is big and clean and there's enough space to hang around in the common room.

Disliked: washing machines are a bit old and sometimes unreliable but that's not too bad.

Liked: The staff were incredibly nice and very helpful, and the location was perfect - just far enough out of the centre to be fairly quiet at night, but directly across the street from Lake Wakatipu and a short walk (10 minutes or less) anywhere in the town centre.

Disliked: No toilet in the common area, so you had to go back to your room and either take your things with you or entrust them to someone else in the common area. Kitchen gets a bit cramped and it can be difficult to find space in the fridges.
