Booked here as we couldn't be guaranteed nights across the road in Pipi patch. Ok host - very negative about kiwi which made us feel not very welcome. Kitchen was good and roomy, clean dorms if very basic. Good common rooms and good price. Would recommend over Base

The lodge is in an excellent location, walking distance to all the main activity and reasonably priced. However that is all that it has going for them. The front line staff was very unfriendly and unwelcoming. There is free wifi offered but I did not bother getting the code as the less interaction I had with the receptionist the better...

Booked this after reading good reviews. It was very well located, but that is about it. There are other places in the same road that I would have far preferred. There was a lot of noise at night from other hostels nearby. Rooms were basic and clean. Kitchen was fairly clean although without a working tin opener. Rooms were ok....

Not great, very basic, beds very uncomfortable and dubious about being "clean", (hairs found on sheets). Had a stranger come visit the room at about 2am! Staff not particularly friendly or welcoming. Kitchen area missing basic utensils like tin opener and also not particularly clean. Very noisy neighbours in hostel opposite. Positives, location good and cheap

We have been there last week for three days. The hostel itself is well located, clean and quite. The only thing that really lets it down are the bed bugs! I am travelling with my boyfriend and as soon as we went to our room we spotted signs of a big infestation (we had this problem before, so we know...

Due to an issue with another backpackers we had to find somewhere to stay and fast. Upon arriving the staff were so helpful and let us have their last room. The room was very very clean and tiny. The amenities were extremely clean, lounge room full of movies and books to borrow. Kitchen very clean. I cannot praise this accommodation...

Very cheap hostel. Basic room, good location. The bathroom is very cold because it's always open on the garden and it's unisex. Not clean neither. The owner was rude and not very helpfull. It was low season so we were almost alone in the hostel, but they lend some good movies at the reception.

I must start by saying that it is the first time my wife and I have stayed in a backpackers. We had a small separate room with private shower and toilet and no view. It was a reasonable cost for this town but it was very spartan to say the least. There was no soap and added to that was...
