Shared accommodation. Only booked because we needed somewhere relatively cheap to stay. 10 ppl in one dorm is too many. The room was small with little space to keep your things so when we arrived other people's things were everywhere including on our beds. Owner simply pointed at our beds without any attempt to clear them.
Ok for the price, but I wouldn't stay there again. Literally used it as a place to crash and that's it. Decent communal areas. Kept clean. TV. Wifi if you pay for it. Found it was like this throughout NZ.
