This is a comfortable hostel though feels a little impersonal, perhaps because the reception staff are hidden inside a "cabin". The rooms are clean and it has a wardrobe and desk, which is a nice touch. The kitchen seemed OK and the showers also. You need to leave a 20NZD key deposit, which is refundable when you check out but...

All in all a very pleasant and comfortable stay combine with great location to make this excellent value for money. The communal spaces, including a great lounge, gives this place a surprisingly homely feel, considering the central location building. I stayed for 3 nights and would definitely go back.

Stayed in this hostel for two nights. The location is ok. Could be better but if you don't mind walking, the city is in your reach. The hostel is a bit worn down but ok, the staff are helpful and nice and prepared to keep the office open if you're arriving late. The kitchen is (as they attend to be)...

We have not had, nor do we currently have, bed bugs in BK Hostel. We periodically perform preventative pest control in every room and clean the common areas daily. Our friendly staff is always willing to help should any guest have a problem during the stay.

I stayed for 3 nights at bk hostel. The staff is very nice and helpful concerning your self organization. I didn't meet a crack on transport possibilities, local tipps for day trips, etc., though. The rooms and beds are rather small, clean and sufficient. Also bathrooms and showers are kept very clean. The internet (tomizone hotspots on the street) only...

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights before flying home. We chose a room without windows as it was cheaper but ended up sleeping into the afternoon as we forgot to set an alarm and had no sunlight to wake us up!
