I stayed here for one night with my mum in October 2016. On arrival we were given a free upgrade and our room had tea and coffee facilities, TV and an en-suite. We had breakfast included in our stay and we could choose between cereal or toast with a variety of toppings and spreads. The lady who checked us in...

We were so pleasantly surprised with this hostel, we paid a very low price for a fantastic spacious ensuite double room, reasonably modern, and very clean and comfortable. The free soup and breakfast are just an added bonus!

We had a fantastic stay. The place was very clean, the bed was comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and offered free soup for dinner and a free breakfast. What stood out the most was the service from Cesar. His level of customer services was probably better than we have seen at most hotels. He made us feel very welcome, was...

Comfortable beds, good wifi, convenient kitchen and guest lounge. Hardly any other guests in the building we stayed in so for the most part it was quiet (we had a private room, I think the dormitories were in the other building and there appeared to be a lot more other guests in that building). However we could hear the bathroom...

A clean budget option with a good kitchen area in the secondary building - the main building has a tiny kitchen that's mainly used by young backpackers. Friendly staff and a good location. There's a cheap noodles outlet next door.

My partner and I stayed for 2 night in November 2016. We spent 2 weeks in NZ, and stayed at 10 different places, ranging from $78/night, to > $500 per night (mixture of AirBnb, caravan parks, hotels and hostels). This was by far the best value of all of the places we stayed. We stayed in a Queen double w/...

We stayed in a private double room that was functional, with good access to some clean bathrooms and toilets. We paid a competitive price for the accommodation and were satisfied with our room. Breakfast is advertised as included, however this is extremely simple: bread, spread, corn flakes and milk only. We did not try the soup or the popcorn. Lots...

The first good impression is the manager of the place, ever friendly, extra helpful, even refused a tip and gave me a slight upgrade! He also recommended the right places to visit close to the glacier. The place itself is well-maintained, with all required amenities within reach. Bed was comfortable, and this place offered the best value for what you...
