When we were checking in, the staff ignored us and we awkwardly stood waiting for about ten minutes. The rooms themselves were fine. The kitchen was dirty and crammed. We woke up around midnight to bedbugs crawling on us. I saw about 5 of all different sizes on the comforter alone. The next morning when we politely informed the hostel...

We came here for two days as part of a family trip to NZ and two days was 1.5 too many. We were two couples and one single guy so had two private rooms and a bunkhouse. The person who made the booking hadn't realised it was a hostel (no idea why) so was a bit of a surprise when...

This is probably the worst stay we ever had in NZ so far. Since it was Christmas time we couldn't find any other accommodation, so had to go with what we got. We booked an en-suit private room. The carpet was wet and dirty and the bed wasn't very clean either. We felt sick since we had hardly any air...

The only good thing in this hostel is the bed with curtains, and plugs and light for each bed; and the location is good too but Fox Glacier is not that big anyway. Besides that, the staff is the worst staff ever, especially the Indian girl who is at the restaurant and who did the check in, she just looks...

This was not a cheap place and while the room was clean the walls were paper thin and staff not very helpful. Had to leave a $20 deposit for room key and could not get back until the next am when they opened at 8AM. This was only choice because we booked late. Would not stay there again nor recommend.

The thump, bang,...

Stayed here for one night and it was better than expected. The quad rooms are very small and the beds are the only places to sit. There is mould on the windows however the beds seem clean. The bathrooms are also clean but the floor gets extremely wet. The staff are helpful at the bar and the drinks are a...

We stayed at room 5, next to toilet and laundry room. Sound proof are so bad that we could basically hear all the noise from toilet, laundry room and people who stay up stair of our room. Whenever they are people walking by (either in front of our room or on the upstairs) we sound the sounds very loudly. Feels...

Where to start, the welcome by the owners is far from welcome and rude!The room was tiny and the curtains were moldy. Bathrooms dirty and only one shower with warm water at the ladies. In short, don't go!

I am happy to read that I am not the only person who got treated badly by these people. It's a long story about a hostel without a conscious. I made a booking through booking.com with this hostel and in the afternoon of my arrival they send me a rude email, asking me to find something else because of a...
