Liked: Courtney was friendly and helpful

Disliked: Was charged a late fee of 10 dollars for showing up 5 minutes late. (9:35 pm) Dave the manager was incredibly unfriendly towards guests. Room smelled like sweaty socks.

Liked: The hostel was well equipped and the mattresses were very comfortable. The location is great for access to buses and local eateries.

Disliked: They charge you for duvets, wifi, luggage storage and staying past 10am on day of check out. At first I was shown to the wrong room. One male staff member would walk into female dorms without knocking despite a sign on the door saying they must do so. The kitchen bins were not emptied despite staff sitting around doing nothing.

Liked: Clean and spacious, good location.

Disliked: The shower cuts out every 10/15 seconds. The reception guy is very intrusive and can be very irritating. They charge extra if you want a bed sheet or duvet, this should be covered in the initial cost of the hostel. There was no heating in the bedroom so we were cold all night.

Liked: This is an amazing hostel with really friendly, helpful staff clean and tidy rooms and amenities. A really good spot in tauranga close to everything but as it's a small hostel it has a really homely and social feel. Definitely a hostel to stay at!
