This hostel is fantastic, one of the best I've stayed at in New Zealand. It's so homey and comfortable with all kinds of awesome little touches to make the stay enjoyable.
The kitchen area feels like a cozy dining room, and I really liked that they had a whole spice rack full of things to choose from and use. The rooms are basic but nice with comfy beds, and the showers were spacious. The best part of the hostel to me was the living room with a wall of VHS tapes and fireplace in the corner that warmed the whole room up. Unfortunately it was raining while I was there, but I noticed that there were hammocks outdoors and it looked like it would have been nice to hang out outside in nicer weather. Also, there is free wifi which is always a bonus.
I can't say enough good things about this hostel really, I wish more were like it!
