Ngoc from United States

Stayed 2 nights in July 2017
Located above a bar and prime location”
This is prime location and within walking distance to the Otago Museum and other fun areas. Staff was nice and friendly as well. Place was clean. Wifi is 500Mb/dollar so could be better, but hey it's good enough.
Reviewed July 23, 2017
Thank you very much for your amazing review :) We appreciate your feedback regarding the high standard of cleanliness and friendly staff. We have to put some control on the WiFi usage so that it works fast and efficient for all guests and that it is fair usage for everyone. We allocate each guest 500MB daily FREE. Any extra is just $1 per code or free with any purchase at the bar. To purchase WiFi on phone networks it is $20 per GB just to put cost into perspective. We hope you enjoyed your time here in Dunedin. Kind Regards, Management

Michael from New Zealand
Solo traveler
Single Room
Stayed 2 nights in December 2016
Very good”
Good Points: -Reasonable price -Decent location -Free basic breakfast -Clean Bad Points: -Window was up at very high level - like a prison cell. -Electricity supply to rooms was on a timer - you had to keep pressing a button every hour or so to reactivate it - terrible for charging devices. -Heating was via noisy bathroom type fan heater, also on a timer that turns it off after an hour. Would be terrible for Dunedin winters. -Toasters in kitchen were broken - you had to hold the lever down the whole time for bread to toast.

adriana from United States
Solo traveler
Mixed Dormitory
Stayed 2 nights in January 2017
Nice place with a few extras”
Place is above a pool hall. Doesn't get too noisy. Dunedin is small so location is fine - just outside of city center - a 2 minute walk. Staff is good. Rooms are decent - stayed in 6 person dorm with decent room. Bathrooms for everyone are in main area but never too crazy busy. Kitchen is nice and big with outdoor seating area. Wifi off/on. Storage for luggage. Discount on beer down in pool hall. Cleaning 10am -2pm which is always a pain since you can't use bathroom and people in/out of your room. But overall, good place.
