Hi Hui, I am so happy to hear you really liked our Hostel, and found it to be clean and spacious. I'm sorry if you found the toilets to be a bit cold, we have just turned up our underfloor heating throughout the hostel and am making sure our big open fire place in the common room is kept on all day. This should keep us all snug and cozy for winter. I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday and we see you again soon. Kind Regards, Georgie Gater - Hostel Assistant Manager

Good value”
I’m sure it’s about the same quality as others in the area, but I enjoyed my stay. It’s very easy to find, and the InterCity bus stops right in front of it. Check in is open until 9pm and they’re really nice. The place is surprisingly big, so don’t get lost. There’s a huge kitchen and shared area with everything you could need to prepare and eat dinner. A TV room with DVDs. Shower rooms and bathrooms. Laundry ($4) and a sauna that was unfortunately out of order during my stay. It’s not a resort but it’s cheap, well managed, and well located. I’d recommend it!

If you plan to go to Franz Josef Glacier, YHA might be your first choice. You can meet great people there, and cooking your own food, sharing with others. The staff is nice but the reception is closed is a bit early, do not be late.

Typical YHA standard hostel. Everything is ok, except that I don't really like that the shower area is not partitioned, so the whole bathroom is wet after showers

Weird layout”
Felt very impersonal because the layout was boxed and like a maze. Room seemed dusty as I sneezed a lot. Not much to do in the town so definitely only needed one night. No bedside light or power points. There was only one powerpoint in the room (besides those useless lockers with points on the inside), which was extremely annoying - common problem with YHAs in NZ. Just install points near the bed and provide a holder to place your phone during the night. So impractical to have the points in a locker.
Reviewed September 25, 2017
Hi Mandy, We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback. The locker power points are a direct result of guest feedback with many guests asking for these so they can charge their devices in a personally locked storage area. We are working through the network to also add more convenient power points where they are needed. Unfortunately that takes time but we are working on it. Kind regards, Mauro Giordano - Hostel Manager
