    Clean, tidy, comfortable rooms and facilities. Well-equipped, large kitchen. Plenty of room for relaxing. Relatively quiet for a city location. Close to the CBD but not too close.

    It would have been good to have somewhere more secure to lock up my bike but I understand that this isn't a priority in the backpackers market.

    Great room, clean amenities, clean kitchen.

    Didn't like the noise of drunken fights in the park - however, this does not reflect on the staff.

    Convenient location between city and Ponsonby Road means it was possible to walk to both, without being in the busgle of either. The park at the rear is a real plus in the middle of the city. And the carpeted room with high stud seems - by backpacker standards - quite luxurious. Friendly proprietor.

    Since I'm not really a backpacker, I'd have liked some coathangers and a small wardrobe or rail on which to hang clothes. But perhaps that's too much to ask of this kind of operation!

    Finally, a clean, characterful, quiet, friendly hostel that's warm and welcoming. Superbly comfortable, great facilities, friendly people of all ages, and a marvellous location. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Fabulous

    Clean and tidy. Great location near Ponsonby road. Pretty quiet, though some traffic noise. Parking available outside hostel.

    Odd layout: kitchen is in a separate building. Spartan aspect to the rooms, which lacked hooks on the door or a chair to put clothes on. Thin walls. No wifi.

    Good location and value for money.

    We were in a private room for privacy and security. There was building going on at the time which was fine. Didn't really bother me until one of the builders came into the room while we were in bed! So did not feel the room was private or secure and had to take important documents and valuables with us every time when leaving the room. Told them at the office and they didn't seem bothered or apologetic.
