Upon arrival to the hostel we were greeted by the manager on shift. She had a go at us for 5 minutes for not ringing the doorbell. Despite us apologising profusely for this, her monologue dragged on!
She also made us have an extra room, despite requesting only 5 beds, she have us a twin a double and a triple! Enough to sleep 7!
I have stayed here before and was served by a bloke that worked here. He was great! He doesn't service the poor service rating!
The showers are a joke! can you call a cubical a shower if no water runs from the shower head? The one downstairs is slightly better, but that's not saying much. The kitchen, and rooms all are fine. Clean, decent space.
Can get quite noisy as the walls are pretty thin! You won't get much of a lie in.
There are much nicer and cheaper places to stay in akaroa! I would not stay here again!
