Cleo from France
Solo traveler
Dormitory (good for 12 person)
Stayed 1 night in August 2017
Could be perfect but..
...but the way they handle the reservations sucks. The discount price on internet is only "usable" once. Meaning that if you want to extend one day (like a lot of backpackers do) you gotta pay the full price, they won't let you book online again to get the discount because you're not considered a new guest anymore. And also they add a charge when you pay credit card. Apart from that the hostel is great, the dorms are a little sad but everything is functional and showers are amazing such as the kitchen. It was a good stay overall but a little warning before about the way you guys handle booking would be nice.

Bed bugs
I was bitten by bed bugs and the staff treated that case as normal saying others had complained about it. I guess the hostel doesn't have a cleaning expecting for ages! Dusting and carpet are not cleans too. However the bathrooms were clean!

An alarm started sounding, no one told us what was happening we had to go and find out ourselves and it turned out someone had stolen wallets, phones and a laptop throughout the dorms (we had a private room thank goodness) and escaped through the fire exit. It felt unsafe and dirty

Stay somewhere else if you can
It was OK after the initial shock of the first night, but I still wouldn't recommend staying here. The staff weren't friendly and they always looked miserable. The kitchen and bathrooms were gross, and they charge you for as many things as they can. You have to pay $2 for the privilege of using a mug! The management leaves whiny, passive-aggressive notes everywhere. The beds were terrible and the other backpackers were always very loud, even after midnight. Oh, and they charge for wifi despite clearly advertising "free wifi!" on many websites. After staying in the nearby Haka Lodge the previous month, where I had a fantastic experience for the same price, there's no reasons for hostels to still be like Silverfern. You can provide a quality, clean, and friendly hostel experience to your guests and still make a profit - Silverfern needs to realize this.

I think you should take the ban of sleeping bags But you could require that it passes a test for cleanliness either it has been cleaned in the last seven days or that one of your staff examines the sleeping bag and either says yea or nay.

Worst hostel ever
I was in a 14 bed dorm and there was two showers and two toilets and we were not the only dorm using these. They were not clean regularly either and the showers were push buttons that stayed on for only about 2 minutes, very annoying and frustrating.

not good
The location is good. However, there was an doupble booking and thus my room wasn't what I had booked. No appologies, no refund. Staff wasn't polite, room and kitchen were were messy.
