Liked: Location, and convenience of supermarket nearby. Good kitchen facilities. Clean and comfortable.

Disliked: Staff on reception could have been a bit more helpful. Not much use to someone who is claustophobic in lifts to be put on top floor and not being moved after asking several times (have been in other hostels and staff much more accommodating)! Add ons kept cropping up e..g wi-fi (non members), breakfast, lockers - and the price was about the same as some other hostels I have stayed in where at least one of these facilities was included.

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.
