We stayed here 3 nights and chose it because it was a New Zealand hostel and we are both kiwis. The kiwi owner was really helpful and nice but the other staff didnt appear to be very happy or friendly. Hostel was impecably clean and the owners daughter has done artwork on the walls which is nice.
The hostel is really quiet and unsociable, this was probably because the hostel is quite far away from where all the action is. The centre is easy to get to via public transport.
The staff were careless with the allocation of beds in the room and my boyfriend and I had to share a single bed one of the nights because someone took his bed and we werent sure if the other beds were free and reception was closed when we got home at night so we couldnt inform them. A numbering system for the bunk beds might be a good idea.
Personally I wouldnt return again, but the hostel is ideal for people who enjoy a quiet stay away from the hustle and bustle. We also found the street to walk down uneasy at night and a bit farMore
