Fabulous 8.6 From 61 reviews

Very good 8.0
It was a good place to stay, except they need to do something about the front door. If your key doesn’t work or you haven’t booked in yet, you can be waiting quite a while until another guest lets you in or finally the person behind the desk comes and opens the door which is a hassle for them as there is a fair way for them to come to get to the door

Friendly, comfortable hostel
Hostel is in a good location and in great condition. Has a friendly atmosphere. Bed was really comfy but didn't get much sleep due to people outside yelling from 3am - 6am. WiFi was difficult to connect to. Otherwise a good stay.

Good but get earplugs
The hostel and staff was very friendly and helpful. The only down was the noice from outside, there were constant fights from the “ store “ across the street and if you didn’t have any earplugs they you wouldn’t be able to sleep.

Good location and accommodations
Good central location, good accommodations, clean, wifi available, slower speed at times, but free. Basic breakfast available for purchase, but you can find more options near by in the city. Overall good value for the money.

Exceptional 10.0
Up to standard
15 mins walk from Sky city. I would have preferred closer. However after reading the bad reviews for the other hostels in the center i opted for YHA. It is clean and quiet. And the reception is attended 24h which is good if you have to check out in the early morning.
