Recently stayed here for 2 nights when I was in town for 2 nights so that I could do the half day glacier hike.
The hostel was clean and the staff were fantastic. I stayed in a single room (room 23). It was fine. A bit noisy, but not when it was time to sleep. Very clean and sufficient for my needs.
The Intercity bus drops off and picks up right from here, so that makes it easy.
Definitely worth staying at.
