Very centrally located along the main street, Maunganui Road, close to the shops and restaurants and beach. Cramped, I felt, with a 16 bed dorm and a bathroom with only 5 toilets and 3 showers for about 30 people. Didn't like the kitchen much - door was always open, so the room had flies all around it, which should be expected. Living room very small, not much room if several people want to sit or watch TV at the same time. Very noisy at night, though not entirely hostel's fault. Mostly due to people out on the street although people upstairs were quite noisy. Would choose a smaller dorm if visited again.
