After arriving on kiwi bus we were made to wait half an hour at the reception desk before getting served although we had been at the front of the queue, the staff continued to check in others who had arrived in their direct line. After pointing out that we had been waiting a lot longer than anyone else she quickly said they're going as fast as they can and proceeded to check us in. No apology. At an obviously busy time which they experience every other day you would think they would have more than 2 members of staff on. Additionally, there seemed to be problems with key deposits they were taking them on card and in cash... However come the morning when we were checking out... problems occurred getting the cash back because staff yesterday had not made proper notes, however she did apologise this time.
On the bright side, The room we stayed in was nice, bright and clean which i was happy about. The kitchen is small but well equipped with cooker, grill and dishes. The location of the hostel is good not far from centre.
