The place has a rundown feeling to it with mismstching crockery in the kitchen area, and very little of it. My room is the proverbial 8 x 6 with a bed and a television. Nowhere to put the case or hang clothes. I have been in much better YHA's on this trip.

This was the first hostel I stayed in New Zealand and it was an okay experience. The room next to mine was being painted during my stay so the paint fumes were kind of annoying. Location is good and price reasonable.

We spent two nights in Hamilton, the second at the Microtel, and really enjoyed our stay here compared to the first place. It was perfectly located in the CBD near a Pak n Save and other amenities. The room we had was newly renovated and very nice. Comfortable beds, clean sheets, and a decent selection of workable items in the...

Great prices, friendly people to chat to.. Excellent kitchen area and bedroom was quite nice. Lady at check in was a breeze to deal with :). Will definitely be back here another time next year. Close to CBD and grocery shopping.. Free parking is also available

I spent there 2 nights and forgot my drybag with a fleece in it there. The owner couldn't find the it and didn't seem to care at all that I had just lost items worth 140NZD and that there are thiefs there. No apologies or refunds or nothing. Cant recommend at all.

We stayed in a single ensuite room on the ground floor. The room seemed nice when we first walked in, but over the course of the first day, we noticed that the room wasn't well ventilated and just seemed slightly damp overall. We also noticed black mildew in the corner of the room. That being said, it was also a...

Very inexpensive place. We booked a double room with ensuite and it was very good value for money. I have stayed in many YHA the last months and this is probably one of my favorites. The room and toilet was really clean. The bed was maybe a bit small but it was comfortable anyway. Unlimited Hot shower with good pressure....

Very inexpensive, fairly clean, great location. And the staff was really friendly. I paid a little more for a private room that shared a shower and toilet with another room. The room was spartan. Had a small TV but very spartan. Hooks were screws in the wall. The no longer used soap dispenser in the shower was disgusting. Still, the...

I've stayed at this YHA several separate occasions in the past few months. I have sampled both the dorm and private accommodation, and have found both to be clean, comfortable, and restful. I have experienced many backpacker facilities in my time, and this one is one of my favourites. The kitchen facilities are small, but clean and well-equipped. The pantry...
