I loved the decoration, the gardens, the places to relax. I didn't like that there is no room with private bathroom, but it is a backpacker.

Loved its own unique style- photos didn’t do it justice. Clean, comfortable bed . Bit of a walk into town centre

Best backpackers I have stayed in in NZ. So much care taken to every detail. No point me trying to explain this place. I couldn't do it justice. Do yourself a favour and stay there Thanks Yuri and Russel for doing it so well. Peter

Nice hostel

Pros: As mentioned before, the facility was very well organized and maintained with extremely helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing at the facility. Only Expedia must specify explicitly if it has shared bath.
Location: The location and ambiance was very homely, very inviting. All nearby activities and places of interest were well displayed in a very organized manner
Everything was very good. Staff was very helpful. The only problem was that Expedia didn’t specify that it is shared bathroom. It mentioned private twin room. But no mention about bathroom. We were taken by surprise. Though the bathrooms were clean and well maintained, we would have definitely preferred private bathroom. This MUST be specified explicitly so that we can make informed decision.
