There were two of us but we were given an enormous room, which was really nice, clean and quiet. There was a great communal atmosphere, more so than anywhere else we stayed in NZ.
But trying to cook in the kitchen at the same time as anyone else was very difficult! Because the hostel is basically just a house, the kitchen is standard size. This would be tricky enough but it's also overflowing with clutter. For one night this was fine but for any more than that it would drive me a bit mad.
