I suppose for how much other hostels cost, this being on the cheaper end, you get what you pay for. The service was good and location is excellent but the rooms and bathrooms need some serious maintenance. They also aren't cleaned very well. The upstairs bathroom has boogers all over the inside of the door...I'm not sure if I'm more...

Stayed for a week at this backpacker with my partner and I should say we loved it. Great location, great staff and very clean. The lady manager is so nice and friendly, always happy to help. The lodge has some strict rules around parties and cleanliness which I think is necessary and works well among guests. I did meet some...

Our room was quite ok, it seemed clean, the bed is good and there was nothing out of the ordinary. The kitchen though needs a thorough inspection, we baked chips in the oven and it started smoking like crazy because all the dirty stuff on the bottom started to burn. Every dish, every glass needs to be checked because 80%...

Cute place in ponsomby close to the city center with a parking available for backpacker's cars. You can find all you need for cooking and there are tables outside to enjoy meals by sunny days. The owner was really accommodating with us. I recommend it.
