Such a great hostel. Nice facilities with a Pool, whirl Pool and a Sauna. The kitchen is very big and Most of the time a open and laughful crowd is around. By this reason the dorms can be noisy and you should go for a private ensuite if you want it quite. The Room is simple but clean and the...

My friend and I, backpackers, stayed in a room for ourselves for 30$, and in return we got a pool (!), a huge kitchen (though not the cleanest), free wifi and parking, and a fantastic young atmosphere.

It looks like a nice hostel with loads of facilities. I had the back luck to sleep in a room with all German friends who loved to party. So they occupied the swimming area. I did not feel welcome at all. My mattress was to small for my bed and the 'lockers' underneath where broken. It was just a small...

A bit untidy but nice. Swimming pool, spa, volleyball etc. Lots of 18 year old Germans, lots of French and Latinos mainly. If you stay try to avoid Golden Bay room as no WiFi coverage there, otherwise bunks and dorms are great for making friends.

The buildings were very clean and well maintained with two large kitchen spaces. There was even free soup and bread in the evening and free breakfast in the Morning, plus...

This is no doubt the best hostel I have stayed in! The outdoor area was amazing, and was fantastic for enjoying the sunshine by the pool. The staff where very friendly and helpful, and the hostel was very clean throughout.

Paradiso was the perfect haven to retreat to between my trips into the wilderness. The kitchens and bathrooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and it really did begin to feel like a home. I think the nightly-- for freeeeee :D -- soup and bread, and cereal and toast in the morning, were nice gestures that contributed to the hospitable...

This was the most average backpackers I stayed at in my time in NZ. I booked it out of necessity. I had booked a private room and at first they accidentally put me in a shared. The room was so tiny, the bottom bunk which was a double bed, nearly took up the entire room. There was no where to...
