    The beds were comfy and the toom was quite clean. There is storage for your clothes too. The base is central to everything!! I was able to walk everywhere and if there were any activities which required travelling a coach is usually included in the fees eg. Skiing at cardrona, milford cruise, shotover canyon swing, fox and jet provide transport to and from the hotel so it worked out perfect!

    Downfall is there were no towels at all. My roomies were using their bedsheets as towels

    Great location right in town walking distance to everything! Decent kitchen size for everyone! If your in town for a few days and want to party then it’s good. There is a bar downstairs and can be loud all night so ideal if your just there to party.

    Bathrooms in rooms were really damp and mouldy! There is no fan or window so no ventilation in the bathrooms which made it always smell really bad! Had 2 bookings and was going to have to swap rooms which was fine but was a huge pain when I went to checkout at 6am they had managed to keep me in my room without telling me. A quick knock on the door or email would have been nice as I had to pack all my stuff up and take my sheets down then to be told I could have stayed in the same room was a little frustrating. If you want somewhere not busy or loud don’t stay here. I knew it would be but it is the cheapest place in town that was my only reason staying at this one. WiFi was so bad didn’t reach my room either! Everyone in my room went to reception to ask and each person got told different things. the WiFi only works on ground floor and 1st floor. Any rooms on 2nd floor didn’t work. Laundry wasn’t available and said it would be only a day to fix I stayed for 6 days and still wasn’t able to use and the alternative was there sister hostel which was $8 for a wash and dry!

    The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    It's a great place if you are ready to party all night long. I was not able to sleep till the bar closed around 2:30am, the music was to loud, and people coming in and out. I was in a female dormitory and around 2am a guy enter to the room alone, told him I thought the was in the wrong room. He told me that from reception they sent him there. With the new system that you need a code to get in I guess he was not lying.
