Great location and accommodation. Really good kitchen facilities and shared communal space - the best we have seen on our trip across NZ and Australia. Table tennis table was much appreciated. Location was good and the free bike hire was great for travelling to the beach. Also great coffee shop nearby.

Having operated hostels for 12 years in Ireland, I have my own perspective on hostels and this was a very good one. They even helped me recover a power converter I left behind and got it to me as my travels continued. If you want fast internet be sure to purchase it, they have slower for free. Also, I find it a bit sad that at this and other hostels there are more people enamored with their internet connections, then the international connections they could make with the people around them.
