We booked this property because it was a handy location, unfortunately we had also booked it because it said we could have 3 separate beds and because I was booking it for 3 students that didn't really know each other it was appropriate they have their own beds.
I have just been told they were only provided with a double and single bed. This has put me in a rather awkward position. They were not confident to ask for this to be changed.
The urinals were blpcked and it was nkt cleaned for couple of days.. the shower prrssure is too low and no hot water.. they charge 50NZD for key deposit which is by card only and no cash and additonal 4% for using the credit card for the deposit and refund u the amount. But the conversion rates and the refund makes u loose approx $5. Better stay away there are better hostel for the same price.. highly recommend hobson lodge just next door with 100 times beytee facilities and staff. The receptionist working there is a backpacker so dont expect any service. Worst hostel stayed in NZ.
Good standard hostel, friendly staff. I found artwork on walls to be very interesting. Bathrooms were modern and kitchen was large with good seating area. Pool table, Tv rooms were good for entertainment. I will be certain to stay again.
