This was such a friendly first-stop in NZ. It had a nice international vibe, friendly staff, clean and comfortable facilities, and of course dessert after dinner! One of the best hostels I have stayed in.,

Homely stay!

Loved the free pudding. Hostel is really clean and friendly. Lots of space to hang out and it felt quite homely. Kitchen was well equipped. Staff really friendly. Only issue was noise travels - we were kept up because we could hear people downstairs in the common area.
