Not as bad as reviews made me believe
Quiet, Comfortable, Cheap
After booking the hostel I started reading some reviews which made me fear the worst, but once arrived it wasn't all so bad, it is a decent hostel for a decent price. It was quiet and the bed was quite comfortable so for 19$ this was a good night.

Proximity to events, cost, staff helpfulness
Any requests we had were calmly and efficiently dealt with. You no the saying don't judge a book by its cover that's Lodge in the City. Worn and weathered cosy comfortable accommodating quirky welcoming when you entered it. will definitely come back.

The price, but for 5 bucks more you get way better hostel
Not good, the bed is terrible and the ground floor room is very noisy.

the position of the hostel. And It's possible to store luggage.
It was so Dirty- especially the kitchen and the bathrooms. Many showers were out of order and there were old Hair lying on the Floor. Dirtiest Hostel in new zealand i stayed in.😞

Worst stay so far
Really poor, we arrived late and were only able to get in as there were some guys hanging around outside. The entrance really doesn't look very inviting. Receptionist was not at the reception when we arrived, we had to go searching for him in the kitchen/living room. When we eventually checked in they had us booked in for a twin bunk room not the double we paid for, did not offer any discount. Twin room was cheaper than the double. When we got to the room the beds had been slept in and the room had not been cleaned. We asked for the room to be changed which they did, the sheets were clean but the mattress was essentially springs with a thin cover. One of the main light fittings had been removed leaving a hole through to the main corridor. The curtains didn't shut properly as one half had been ripped off the rail. The bathrooms on our floor didn't have working showers so I had to go up two floors to the nearest shower which was at least hot. My GF used the female only showers which were not clean and of the two showers only one had a lockable door. Overall not a great experience, we checked out as soon as we could the next morning.

Lack of maintenance
Location, that's all
We were so disappointed with the said parking space which it's required advance booking but we were not informed at all. The parking lot is not free but still cheap compare to other parking nearby but this should be listed on the hotel description to set the correct expectation. Moreover, the bathroom light was spoilt but nothing to be done on my two days stay over there. Not a terrible place but if you are looking for tidy quality this shouldn't be your option.
