Great hostel. We were automatically upgraded from a double to a double ensuite. Our room was like a cute beach shack, was comfortable, spacious and they had a lovely garden area. Didn't use the communal spaces that day but I'm considering staying again the day before my flight. Would recommend.

Bamber House itself is stunning, very clean and comfortable. Large communal areas and a very well set out kitchen. This alone would have made my stay and first week in New Zealand very comfortable but the icing on the cake was the staff. The managers here can not do enough for you. They are so helpful and friendly It felt...
