We travelled with Kiwi Experience, and requested a 3 night stay, on arrival we were told we could only stay 1 night, so already off to a bad start. Our room stank of urine, and the duvets smelled of stale sweat. Absolutely disgusting! We spoke to some other people we knew who had the same issue. Bar downstairs is okay, free food was pretty poor but it's free so what do you expect. Went to shower at 9pm, no hot water in any of the 3 showers I tried. We booked into the YHA down the road, much cleaner, friendlier staff and a nicer atmosphere. Free wifi is only between 7am and 7pm in reception. Girls toilets were clean. Good location but that's about it! YHA is 2 minutes down the road and 100x better! Worst Base hostel we've stayed at in New Zealand!
