Backpacking / gap year

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

Liked: The dinner deal at the bar was great!

Disliked: The big bus tours stop here, so you have to wait in line for a shower or to use the toilets...and if you arrive the same time as one of the buses does, you will also have to wait in line to check in. Too many people = no space in fridge for your food.
