We paid $130 for one night in a twin bedroom with bathroom. Honestly, I have been in many ensuit bedrooms in many backpackers for half the price that were exactly the same quality. It was not bad, just too overpriced for such a basic bedroom.

They have a share kitchen that actually closes so if you arrive...

The lady receptionist is ok but is not as friendly as compared to many hotel/motel I stayed in New Zealand. The laundry is not opened 24 hour. Traveller like me may come back to the hotel late and may wish to do the laundry late.
