While this was what you would expect as a backpackers it is next door to a bar. The noise over the weekend made it a terrible stay. 2:30am a full on fight broke out. Would not recommend this as a place to stay if you need any amount of sleep. Staff were friendly and amenities what you would expect but we were very disappointed by the level of noise for three of our four nights. Only quiet last night because it was Sunday and bar closed. We would not have booked here had we known.

Enjoyed two nights in the family room. Excellent value with air conditioning, TV and own bathroom. All linen supplied. Excellent location right in the centre, next to mall, restaurants and costal walkway. Excellent staff service. I would have liked to rate cleanliness higher, but some guests did not always leave the kitchen clean or wash and dry their dishes.

Fantastic place. Great location for coastal walkway, right in town. Bars, restaurants all handy. Manager was so friendly and welcoming, also very efficient. Best hostel I've stayed in NZ.

Great service and accommodation. The only thing I'd take issue with is the parking which you have to either pay for from 9am-5pm or not drive at all. Don't let this overshadow your stay though, as it's a lovely place.

Really warm welcoming, explaining everything around the hostel but also what to do. The room was cozy not noisy with ac and with clean bathroom. Really close to the intercity bus stop.
