I had a private room. Only heating was from a small plug in radiator. Bedding was so cheap and generated so much static electricity, I could see it in the dark!
Breakfast is what it is - but it is only instant tea or coffee & a few loaves if bread with jam & butter.
The website claims to have parking / there is none. There is street parking around the corner free from 6pm to 10am only.
Internet is cheap at NZD5 for 24hrs but this is capped at 100mb
The place seems to be home to large groups of young men who leave early and return late - it would seem from some kind of work.
