By far, best backpacker's hostel of our stay in New Zealand. It's well decorated in an international, mainly African, theme, bright and cheerful. The rooms and the kitchen are stocked with many conveniences. The common room is comfortable. The host is great. And best of all, free use of kayaks and bikes. There is a bird reserve just a 10 minute kayak away.
It's not a high-energy loud-music atmosphere, and may thus appeal less to the younger adult traveller who is wanting to party in the evenings. But for us (58 and 62) it was great.
