Review of YHA Gisborne
1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Jan 2016
Well, there's not much to say. I stayed there one night in a double room and had the next day approximately 20 bites all over my body. Wasn't a nice experience and I didn't expect this to happen in New Zealand.
This happened in August 2015 so I' don't know whether or not the owner did something against this problem.
Date of stay: August 2015

New owners are kind and friendly. It is 10 min walking distance from city centre. Balcony and other facilities are nice and clean. Kitchen is handy. Even at the summer time, the room was a bit cold at night. It can be freezing in winter.

We stay one night in this backpacker and it was a great experience. Room a large and clean (dorms of 5). Facilities well maintained, even if the shower box was a little bit small. We check late and leave early on the morning and the staff was very friendly. good localisation, not too far from city center

This was a lovely hostel to visit, nice showers, good pressure, compfy beds, nice size TV room, helpful staff and an average size kitchen. Designed not to take huge amounts of people which a I think is good. Close to town centre.

Enjoy!
