very small room in a saloon bar
I don't know one thing, which was good.
A very small room consisting of a bed like it is used in a youth hostel. In the room a shower is integrated. You have to use the same toilets like the guests of the bar use.

Good location, superb rooms
Very cosy atmosphere, free upgrade to a luxury room when hotel was fully booked
Very warm and welcoming atmosphere, no noise to hear from the cosy pub downstairs. Very friendly staff that will assist you with any questions. We got a free upgrade to the jacuzzi luxury room when the hotel was fully booked. perfect first stay in New Zealand!

amazing place
small, happy, relaxed
It is one of the best pplace I've stayed. The owner is versatile, friendly, helpful and considerate. He teels me how to have a trip in Auckland, and see us off in the morning with barefoot although he slept so late last night. Thanks It is weenkend when we arrive there, we enjoy the player singing and playing. If you want to enjoy and experience the local custom, it is the best choice. It is quiet except weekend. It is convienient to the city center, and there is bus station 211 just in front the gate.

nice staff but tough living
staff were awesome
I really just think this is a place for students on holiday wanting to party and I am just a bit old! It wasn't what I needed for my stay but I'm just not the cliental. If I was there when I was 20 it would have been the best place in the world to be. Live band, great bar, party central. so when I say no I wasn't satisfied that's the only reason. anyone between 18-23 I say go hard and stay at the saloon! you'll have a blast and the staff rock.

OK but a bit noisy and bed very uncomfortable!!
free wifi, bus stop into city opposite hotel, friendly staff
booked a double room for privacy as we are a couple. ended up having to sleep on the bunk beds as double bed was a sofa matress which was horrible and at an angle! very noisy as above a pub so not a place to get an early night. communal toilets were tiny and didn't lock. showers in room were large, clean and very powerful. staff were friendly and there was some parking - even though were were asked to move our vehicle across road as the owner had people wanting to come watch sport at the bar. overall stay was ok but wouldn't recommend. it was still being renovated and will look nice when finished but i think it opened for guests a little too early.

A bit like paying to sleep at a friend's house...
Friendly staff, occasional free wi-fi, opposite bus stop
This place is still in the process of being converted/built and has maybe opened a little too early...much of it resembles a building site - including the room that they moved our friend to. We paid extra for the 'private' room as we are a couple, yet we had to utilise the bunk beds as the 'double' was actually a sofa bed - very uncomfortable and angled in the middle so we couldn't sleep without rolling on top of one another. Free wi-fi was not working for the first 24hrs and the staff member didn't know how to sort this out...and the place has VERY thin walls and ceilings so it was a bit difficult to read or watch a movie in our room as we couldn't hear ourselves think. The two available toilets didn't lock and the doors didn't even close properly, which was not too relaxing...On the plus side, the in-room shower was great, the staff and owner were friendly and the bus stop into the city was literally opposite the hotel.

Warnung! Geht hier nicht hin!
Das einzig gute an dieser Unterkunft ist die relative Naehe zum Zentrum.
Das einzig gute an dieser Unterkunft, ist die relative Naehe zum Centrum. Als wir dort ankamen mussten wir allerdings feststellen, dass das Zimmer bestialisch stank. Wir hatten uns extra vorher essen gekauft, um es auf dem angeblich vorhandenen BBQ zu machen. Doch als wir nach diesem fragten, wurde uns nur gesagt, dass wir diesen nicht benutzen koennen. Deshalb blieb uns nur die angegebene Kueche. Diese bestand leider nur aus einer Mirowelle. Deshalb wollten wir im angeblich vorhandenen freien Wlan nach Alternativen gucken. Das Wlan war jedoch so langsam, das man es nicht verwenden konnte. Auserdem waren auch nur mb frei. Deswegen wollten wir dann uns so auf den Weg machen. Doch trotz der Hinweise wurde uns die Rueckerstattung des Geldes verweigert. Weshalb wir geblieben sind. Geschalfen hat man kaum aufgrund des Gestankes. Am Morgen bekamen wir zu unserer Ueberrascung sogar kostenlos heisses Wasser. Was mich gefreut hat. Abschliessend, ist die Unterkunt dennoch sein Geld niemals Wert.
