Definitely the best Hostel we’ve stayed in NZ!! Awesome staff and facilities and really close to town!! Kitchen and toilets have been renovated since our last time there (we’ve been there a few times and it just gets better) Totally recommended!!

位置離市區很近。 Wifi尚可,因為一直中斷。 床看起來乾淨,但棉被超不保暖,我已經穿了兩件冬天的衣服,還是一直被冷醒。 暖氣只是個裝飾品,一點都沒有用。 櫃台的金髮女生態度很差,很無禮。 千萬別來,一點都不推薦。也不會有下次了。 同樣的價錢可以有更好的選擇。 Location is good. Wifi is ok.
