Good place, shame about some of the hostellers

by PipPaul W on 20 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

We had a private double room This was a very nice place to stay, nice room, excellent shower etc, lovely lounge,very good location just a brief walk to city centre Kitchen was good too, stacked with equipment Shame that many of those staying didn't appreciate this in the kitchen - nearly always unwashed pots, pans, bowls.... left out all over the place, but not really something the owners can do much about

Nice hostel, friendly.

The room was very light and clean, the bathrooms were clean (though the showers were hard to get hot.) The kitchen is roomy and there's a nice common room and outdoor seating area. It's not far from Victoria St, which has a lot of restaurants. However, it's quite a walk to the Restart Mall, bus exchange, etc (about 45 minutes).

All you need

I stayed there for 2 nights. Kitchen was really well equipped! Staff was ver friendly. Dorms were relatively spacious. Showers were really clean and quite many available (enough for when I was there). It's a cute comfortable atmosphere. Not very far from Center so easy to have a 20min walk there. I'd go again anytime. Thank you also for the ver easy late night check in.

Good crowd, very friendly staff

Really liked the atmosphere. Rooms clean, showers warm, good mixed crowd hangs out there (not the young party backpackers), staff was always super friendly and helpful. Free parking. Most people hang out in the kitchen despite there is a larger room downstairs. If that room was designed a bit more social, I'm sure people would also hang out there. Rooms just as expensive as everywhere in NZ. Minus point for the location - gotta walk 15-20min to the city or the next supermarket.

Nice Hostel and good location
