Building was nice and the facilities also pretty good. Even though we didn't spend time around the commom areas they looked really nice and fun.
However, even though the room was nicely made the bed wasn't that great. The worse though was our host - she was very polite, but not very accomodating at all. She didn't let us spend time having breakfast at the kitchen after the checkout time (which is common practise around NZ) and was uptight about other details around the place. This is frustrating especially considering that Sunkist is priced a few bucks above the average backpacker price. Also, the bahtrooms are open and can be hard to get some privacy.
If you're okay with this sort of things, you might like to stay there. We won't be coming back though.
