The happy apple was recommended to us by the Sea Kayak Company as we were going on an expedition with them. My son and I stayed in a twin room and it was a great place to stay and we were glad of the recommendation. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable, shared bathroom facilities were good. I have seen complaints from people about the 5 minute shower limit (with a 2 minute reset time) but to be honest The Happy Apple make this clear in their write up and as an ex submariner friend of mine would say "if you want a Hollywood shower, stay in a 5 star hotel". Backpacker hostels are a way of life in New Zealand and I think this is one of the best examples.
