Stayed here before and after hiking the Queen Charlotte Track. Great that they have car parking and could leave my car here (for free) while out in the wilderness. The 8 bed female dorm had loads of space. 8 minute hot showers a good idea - saves the environment and saves waiting in line for half an hour for the person before you to finish! Beds are fully made-up and also with a bath towel which was an unexpected treat, only downside is that it is next to a commercial area so work/construction noise all night. Nice lounge area and kitchen space. Great location to shops and wharf.
