Very friendly, helpful staff, very clean room/dorm (the most comfortable mattress ever!!!!), and literally the best wifi I've had in Australia/New Zealand. Whoo! I really liked this place :). Would recommend.

Clean! Social atmosphere, conducive to meeting new people. Exceptional and accommodating service -- Mike and Nani are friendly, personable, knowledgable, and honest. Also highly recommend the in-house restaurant; both service and food were excellent.

Amazingly friendly place and people. The staff are helpful and talkative. The rooms are well heated, clean and very spacious. The free breakfast is good and the $10 meal in the evening is more than worth the money.

Thank Shauna B
