Beds are comfortable although the first mattress I slept on had broken springs. I told the manager about it and he seemed to take it seriously. Location is walkable to town. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Pool and spa are a bonus. James is really knowledgeable about Abel Tasman and really helped plan my trek.
Staff blast music in the morning while cleaning the bathrooms which sucks when you're trying to sleep. They can also be lazy when cleaning, for instance my room wasn't vacuumed two days in a row. Way too many long term residents who have taken all available space in the kitchen and fridge. Not enough tea towels available to dry dishes, the ones hanging smell terrible. Wifi doesn't reach the rooms in the outhouses. Low water pressure in the showers, most of the shower heads are broken. Water never quite gets hot, always stays lukewarm in the shower; twice I've had to take a cold shower. Not enough toilets for the number of people staying. Parking is a major issue; the lot is very small with only a few places that some staff have occupied.
The price for a double private room is outstanding!
The backpacker might be cramped for taller people
Pool and Jacuzzi
The environment is good
Wifi so pool
We felt like crashing into a 30-year-old teenager's house party. There are lots of people living in the hostel, the common facilities were filthy. Staff at reception was completely lost and charged us twice for our stay. Visibly they try to save money on everything - e.g. I never saw worse toilet paper in any public toilet or gas station in the entire country. Shower had hot water... for less than one minute. Private room and bed were ok.
