This is based on a one night stay.
The welcome was very hostile and cold. It was a rainy day in early spring. Hostel was full but not a single person seemed to be a backpacker: there was a family of 4 (a younger and an older couple) with a small child, some group of over 50years old. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. Bathroom was shared and unisex which I found odd after staying in so many hostels in NZ. The film room was the only thing that can be worth to mention.
