Most of the glass windows were broken, so there was no escaping the noise of the Highway at night. Old curtains that fell of the rods. Sticky kitchen, the worst of all YHA's I've seen. The girls at receptions were great though, and did everything they could to get me a room in the other YHA in the centre of GC. Compliments for them !

The kitchen should be cleaned more often... The toilets as well...

Hostel is very conveniently located near the airport (5 mins walk) so saves time if you have early morning connecting flight. Even though its close by airport, we hardly heard any noise. Pool, internet, library, kitchen are well maintained. The lady in the morning was very helpful but the night care taker is a grumpy old man. We had to ask for room change as one of the rooms was badly maintained.
