Lovely hosts. Very accomodating. I Would definitely stay there again. Nice atmosphere with lots of other pleasant people. It's not too far to the sky bus stop. Which was good for me travelling from the airport in Auckland.

The Sky Bus is an excellent service that runs every 30 minutes from the bottom of our street to the airport and it makes the travel day less stressful. No rushing to make a shuttle or expensive taxi.
