Liked: It was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful

Disliked: It was so big it felt more like a hotel than a hostel. A lot of what I enjoy about hostels is getting to meet and know new people. It was so big I never saw the same people twice.

Liked: The hostel is large and run like a hotel, but it worked well for me. There were a wide variety of guests, of all ages, but not much interaction between them as the hostel has 300 beds and was completely booked. I appreciated the quiet in the halls, ample and very clean bathrooms/showers, other facilities were also large, friendly, well maintained and very clean. Great staff!

Disliked: A bit expensive, but this hostel is in a major city and I stayed on the night ot the All Blacks vs. Argentina game...there were NO beds available in the city for latecomers (I booked a long while ahead)...and most places raised prices for that night.

Liked: This is the best hostel I have stayed in. Facilities and cleanliness are of a very high standard. Two kitchens so always space to cook whatever the time. Very secure and felt safe the whole time. Location brilliant on corner of road opposite supermarket for cheap food and acroos the road from embassy theatre, just round corner from main high street. The staff are brilliant and helped me with booking tours and even helped change bookings and dates to things I had already made with no fuss and helpful attitude. Can not reccomend enough.
