We knew it upfront of course, loud music and lots of people celebrating.

We arrived late and by calling they could still let us in the room.
I had some hours sleep :) A couple tried to have sex , the music was loud and the morning was early. But the hostel was clean, people were friendly and it was VERY cheap :)

Big hostel, on centre of town, just across from small thermal park. Friendly and helpful staff, comfy beds, nice rooms, heated pool, big kitchen. I've really enjoyed this place and would stay there again.

This is a very average hostel, looks wise its not the best. They had one member of staff on to check in a bus load of people which is never good, our 10 bed dorm had one toilet and shower and the screen door to the "balcony" didnt close properly which was great on a cold night. The bar started the night well with an acoustic musician, however this was soon overridden by bar games which was a bit of a shame. The place really just needs a good clean and a lick of paint!

Great hostel that accomodates for all your needs! Staff were really friendly, rooms and all communal areas were clean with great facilities. Laundry, internet, hair straightners, hair dryers, not to mention activities every night and awesome drink and food deals. I'd definetly come back!

It's a 5-10 mins walk to the isite tourism centre (naked n intercity pick/drop off point). We paid only nz10 booked via naked accommodation for a 8 bedded mixed dorm. The room was empty thru out our stay (which is great) and they were attached bathroom to the room with balcony overseeing the pool and bit of the mountain. They have hot swimming pool (but we didn't swim in it) communal tv and kitchen. Kitchen rarely used I presumed cos the appliances are old and limited (microwave only one and doesn't work) and utensils were limited.
You can check in anytime just let reception know cos they have overnight security. (we checked in at 4am). If you wanna zorb / visit agrodorm farm be sure to get hold of the coupon cut outs from Jason.nz brochure
