Liked: Everything - clean, centrally located, great kitchen facilities, loads of internet/computers, meals on offer, activites booked, knowledgable staff. Extended stay for another 3 days. Great place to chill out and spend some time planning the north island.

Disliked: The top bunk beds are too low so when you sit up from the bottom bunk you bang your head!

Liked: The view from my room (606) was equal to or better than that of any five-star hotel! And the ensuite was so lovely and clean, it was a pleasure to stay there! Loved it :)

Disliked: It should have a rooftop garden...

Liked: Very friendly staff, clean facilities, lots of options for room types (dorm, single, double), and free espresso in the morning!

Disliked: It was VERY noisy - trying to go to bed was really difficult because the windows didn't shield the noise from the traffic, and I was woken up in the morning from honking and sirens.
