Nice Hostel, Great Location”

We stayed in the Superior Double room, which is private and has an attached ensuite. The bathroom was small and didn't have a bath tub, but that was expected. The room was very clean and towels were surprisingly soft. Excellent location right across the street from the iSite, where our next day's tour picked up. We were also able to walk to the Te Papa museum and several nice restaurants.

Very affordable place to lay down your head ready for the next day, Shared dorms can be Abit noisy, but a small price to pay for a weary travelers...the place is clean, customer service was great, check in and out with complications, good place to stay

Basic, value for money, great location”

We booked the superior double which meant we had our own bathroom and a double and single bed. We also had a TV which had netflix and amazon prime avaliable. Everything was perfect for a quick cheap stay in the centre of the city

Super nice”

Best hostel I’ve stayed at. Felt very private with the curtains in the dorms and I had a great nights sleep. It was very sociable and easy to meet people. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were also luxurious.
