The cleanliness of this place was very disappointing. The rooms, kitchen, showers, and toilets were all rather dirty. I am actually surprised that Hi-Hostels and YHA certified this place. I would not recommend this place to others and would not stay here again.

A hostel not exclusive to NZ/YHA. Mixed interests and objectives.

Because of its position there is very little to do of an evening as the hostel had not updated their television service to digital - no tv!
