One of the best budgeted hostel/ backpacker accommodation we came across during our our trip in NZ. Great location, clean (and yes a bit cold) room, super spacious and complete set of communal kitchen, spotless communal bathroom. Great people to hang out with when you're cooking together.
You can even have your own mug-shot, they provide you with the uniform and photo background.
You will have a lot of fun here :)
