Great location, lake view from the kitchen and very near to collecting point to Milford Sound. For suggestion, the kitchen should open before 6.30 since I need to cook and have breakfast before I go to Milford Sound.

I enjoyed being so close to everything! Maybe too close to the late-night partiers outside, but that was only a problem on Saturday night.

I once discovered the back/fire door open and told reception. The woman on duty thought it had been (accidently) left open by the cleaners. This is bad security lapse.

The location would have been ideal except for the number of drunks outside the hostel in the middle of the night. In this respect the central location of the hostel was a bit of a disadvantage but for the rest of my trip the location proved excellent. Not being able to sleep was the only bad part. The hostel is a bit dated in decor but was clean and convenient for me, and good value as well, so I would definitley stay there again and recommend it to people. The staff were fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the town, the trips available and tour providers etc. I found the staff knowledge about trip/tour booking the most welcome and useful part of staying there.

Of all the HI hostels I've stayed in, the staff here was the most unfriendly and unhelpful. I actually felt like I was burdening them to ask questions. It seems some of the guys especially were just too "cool" to be bothered - total lack of customer service. I actually saw of of them roll his eyes!
