    Exceptional”

    The room was really nice with comfortable beds and the entire hostel was spotless. However, the differences between rooms were odd as my dorm room didn't even have shelves or tables to put stuff, only a safety deposit box with a sloped top (can't even use as table). There also weren't hooks to hang jackets, whereas other dorm rooms had hooks and even couches. The kitchens were well equipped and also provided free bread and various spices, though the lack of basic spices, sugar and salt, was strange. The wifi was fast but capped at 1GB daily, with the option to buy unlimited data at only $2. The toilets were clean and the showers had a small bench to put stuff on, which is really helpful. However, it's a little inconvenient that the toilet and shower lights switch off by themselves to save power. The heater also does that, but 2 blankets were provided so there wasn't a need for it anyway. There was also a sauna, air hockey table and spacious lounge and I'm overall happy with my stay.

    Well appointed en-suite room”

    This YHA was a good choice for us - an en-suite room with enough hanging space and a well arranged little bathroom with shelf space behind the toilet. Nice kitchen, eating area with bread provided for breakfast, which we took advantage of for 2 of our 3 days stay. Easy facilities to wash tramping clothes, though not free. Friendly helpful staff. Would recommend and stay again.

    New Zealand hospitality at its worse!”

    The building is quite large but inside is like a concrete prison that leads to the rooms where humans lay their bodies down for the night. Spent one night here due to having Christmas lunch with friends in Nelson. Big mistake! Was put in a 8 dorm room with 7 psycho self-centered brats. Came in and out of room all night. 3 males came in turning light on at 3:30a.m. and started talking as if no one was sleeping. At 4:30a.m. woman comes walking in right strob light flashing on her phone and it stayed on for the rest of the night. How anyone could expect to achieve any form of sleep in a situation like this is beyond comprehension! When I did get up at 9:00a.m. and exhausted from the "hell" night, was sitting in the eating area at 10:13a.m. when the aggressive kiwi manager starts yelling out my name wanting to know where I was. When I put my hand up, he said, "you are suppose to check out at 10a.m., and why haven't you done so? Have you put your bed sheets away?" Hellish and sleep in car

    Will definitely not stay here anymore. Also, worst part was having a roommate who thinks she owns the whole room. She wont let us use our cellphones at night because she hates the light emanating from it.

    Seems like it caters to students more than backpackers ”

    No bedside power points or lamps in the room (really annoying!!). Very small lockers. Wifi was very patchy in some parts of the building. Have to carry luggage up stairs to get to rooms. Crap oven (knobs seem broken). Weird layout and style (it was like a warehouse with bright colours that were way too much for me). The vibe of the place was overall a bit weird as there seemed to be a lot of students there (felt more like a student dorm). Originally I was planning to book two nights but glad I only went with the one. Wouldn't stay again.
