Homely little place with a nice reception and staff.
Rooms however were a let down. Heaters were half useless as they were tiny and switched off automatically every 30 minutes. Showers were absolutely terrible. The water was freezing cold, easily my worst showering experience in NZ. Living room of the bunk smelt absolutely horrible.
On the plus side, staff are really friendly. The hot soup was glorious as well on a cold winter stay. Beds were fine. Community in the common areas were nice along with free unlimited wifi. However, the heater and the hot water made my stay not as enjoyable as I would have hoped for. I have absolutely zero tolerance to cold showers in cold winters and disgusting rooms.
