Liked: This hostel was very clean and had good facilities. It really felt more like a hotel which was good for the value you pay. The location was great with the supermarket right across the street!

Disliked: Since it was more like a hotel it was very hard to meet people since I was traveling alone. Most of the travellers I met staying were there for a short period of time of no more than a week. I checked in after midnight and they had a buzzer for staff to come and help me. I had to wait 20 minutes since it was no working. The staff was also not very knowledgable about questions I asked regarding IRD#'s, phones, etc.

Liked: It's very clean and new looking. It's opposite a supermarket and close to the Te Papa Museum. The room I was staying in was nice and big and had a decent mattress on the bed.

Disliked: It's huge, I personally prefer smaller hostels as it's easier to meet people. There isn't much atmosphere.

Liked: i liked the location, that it was well organised and that they would cater to a lot of travellers' needs - lockers, local information, launderette etc etc. i also liked that they seems to do a few things about being environmentally friendly at the hostel - although this did not seem to be extended to all the activities.

Disliked: what i did not like that the laundry which did not wash my clothes properly and was overpriced, the towel for rent was smelly and had lots of spots and was quite disgusting. the hostel building itself is not well designed. lack of privacy issues and partly poor acoustics.
