The property was unclean and untidy right from the front entrance. We have stayed in many backpacker hostels around the world and coming home to NZ we were very ashamed of the low standard.

Location is great but we really struggled with the noise. We had a private room thinking it would be quieter but the noise from the communal facilities on the floor above was constant. Neighbouring guests also very loud. We also had 2 guests turn up and unlock our door one morning while we were getting dressed - they’d somehow been checked into our room while we were still there :/
