We stayed in the Backpacker wing of the Cambridge Hotel for three nights in a six bed female dorm which was clean and quite a nice size.
Although all of us had a sore back after sleeping on the pretty uncomfortable mattresses,the furniture was basically ok and we can´t complain.
The staff was friendly and we were provided an opportunity to store our luggage for free before checking in and out.
The only bathroom was to be shared between male and female which wasn´t that much of a problem because it was really big and most of the time clean.A pleasant surpirse for us girls were the free hair-driers.
The hotel is located more or less centrally which means that it can sometimes be a bit louder as there are other backpacker hostels and pubs nearby.
Next time I would probably rather stay in the neraby YHA hostel which is the same price and actually seems to be a bit nicer-well,it did win an ward for being the best hostel in New Zealand ;)
