we had a deluxe room with ensuite, the room itself was ok, was clean and tidy, we couldnt look out the window as there was scaffoldig and red mesh stuff wrapped around. was kept awake at night by very rowdy guests talking and laughing really loudly, maybe because our room was close to the communal lounge area on that floor....

Hotel staff were friendly and check in was smooth. The lobby looks great and seems quite self-sufficient as there is a restaurant and cafe available. Rooms seem abit old but was pretty alright. Clean and quite well-maintained. Location is great as it is near the Botanic Gardens and walking distance to Re:Start Mall. Parking lots are available at no charge....

The YMCA is well situated behind the Arts Centre and beside the Botannical Gardens. It has parking on site. There is a range of accommodation and we booked a double room and an en suite. The room was adequate - small but with tea and coffee making, a comfortable bed, and clean. There was no real view - despite being...

We were a group of 4 boys and stayed here overnight before catching our morning flight next day. We booked the room online and found the place to be very well maintained and hygienic. Rooms and bed were clean and also had space for parking our vehicle.

I've traveled the whole of New Zealand and this hostel was by far the best one. I felt like I was in a hotel. We had a very modern bathroom right next to our bedroom and in the rooms we had our own single beds each (not bunks) light switches each, 2x plugs next to each bed and lovely comfy...

I carefully chose this accommodation because of its great proximity to a number of locations I deemed appropriate to my trip. First, it’s right across the street from the sprawling and awesome Botanical Gardens so you can talk a stroll anytime since it’s that close. Other places alarmingly close to the YMCA is the I-Site Visitor Center, and just next...

I had a good stay here before but this time was not good. Stayed 2 nights, and both nights there were many late arrivals with loud voices. Obvious that some workers stay here often and don't care about others. They make a lot of noise disturbing other guests after midnight and 4am, 5am, etc. The YMCA night staff were ineffective...

Service was good, staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived late but check in was no hassle. Rooms were clean and tidy with towels provided. Good heating in the rooms too. The shared bathrooms were clean and well maintained as well. There is free parking at the rear of the building. In terms of location, ideally situated right next to...
