As a "backpacker" hostel, we had to use a communal bathroom down the hall and a communal kitchen, well-equipped with all the necessities. Sometimes the kitchen was a little crowded but the spirit of sharing and cooperating made it bearable. We met people from all over the world and shared information and regional terms. There was a balcony off the kitchen that allowed us to enjoy the good weather and a common room with a TV and books. All-in-all an excellent introduction to NZ.
