It was an acceptable service, not bad. Sometimes you can smell bad odor in the corridors and in the rooms. It's maybe becuase of wc that are close to rooms or that the latters are not enough exposed to sun.

The staff was super friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help us enjoy the visit. The ladies who work there cleaning the rooms are the best, keep rooms spotless and were friendly and welcoming. Location of the place is great, short walking distance to go anywhere you want to go in the area.

great breakfast (especially for america), friendly staff and fast WIFI everywhere in the hostel. I only stayed 2 nights, but I saw that they have a lot activities and other offers-that's great! The first room was pretty small for 4 people (I stayed in two different rooms), but it was clean and I liked the plugs next to the beds.

This was the first time I have ever stayed at a hostel. We are building a house so are saving money for the build in NZ. We couldn't justify spending a huge amount of money on average hotel accommodation, hence the decision to stay in a hostel. I'm glad we did! We booked a private room on the 3rd floor...
