Liked: Great rooms, comfy beds, good facilities and excellent staff. All in all, the best hostel I've stayed at in Australia and New Zealand

Disliked: Again, chargeable WiFi but this seems to be a New Zealand thing rather than a hostel thing. Still think hostels could offer this for free. Most pubs, cafes and even airports do now a days
