          As for all the YHAs we stayed in it was functional and good value for NZ. We didn't use the kitchen or the common area but they looked good. The staff were friendly enough. I would recommend this place for backpackers on a budget.

          This YHA setting could not be nicer being right across the street from a park and a fabulous view of the lake. It's a four star property with a one star price. Also the YHA is only one block away from restaurants and supermarket.
