Liked: Spacious kitchens, big rooms, soft, squishy beds.

Disliked: Smaaaall showers. Staff didn't remember me even after I went to the counter 3 times in a row. Ages of guests ranged from children to elderly.

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 kitchen facilities, the big rooms, it was clean, easy to get to from bus stop

Disliked: The staff don't seem to know much about the city, they charge for internet whilst cheap should just be built in to the price.

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.
