After having travelled around New Zealand for the last 8 months, I can honestly say that this is the worst hostel in the country. It is the only place I have stayed where I have felt uneasy and worried that my belongings would be stolen.
The building was in an immense state of disrepair and, as far as I could tell, this was NOTHING to do with the 2011 earthquake and EVERYTHING to do with a lack of care. The windows didn't shut, the room didn't lock and the toilet was falling apart.
Horrible location, poor service and abysmal rooms. Truly awful.
I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone.
