Clean, comfortable beds, private parking lot, helpful staff, privacy curtain and light with individual outlet to charge your devices, heater in the room, storage closet in the room, big and stocked kitchen (plus free tea, hot chocolate, and coffee!) You have to go outside to get to the bathroom- not an issue during summer months but when I went during the winter it was so cold outside!
Near to lake and handy for coach pick up next morning.It is difficult to say I liked anything else. We paid a high price for an ensuite room and it did not compare to any other motels we have stayed in. It was cramped, no furniture, bed was on floor, no facilities other than clean towels. Very noisy, even on 3rd floor as night club underneath going until 3 a.m. followed by noisy revellers.
too noise during the night
Rooms were modern and clean. The location is excellent, staff friendly. For a budget backpackers it rates among the best I've stayed in There is only one thing not to like about this place, unless you love to party! Until 2am on Friday evening sleep on the lower floors is almost impossible due to the bass of the music from the bar beneath!
The room and ensuite were very clean and functional. The shared kitchen facilities were modern, clean and spacious. We were only given two pillows which placed together would have equalled half of a normal pillow. Asked down stairs for extra but told no more availiable. Music from bars on both sides of the street made it near impossible to sleep until about 3am dispite double glazing.
Location very Noisy!!! A pub is located just next to the hotel
Nice bathroom in private rooms Very noisy....so many bars around!!! The staffs were rude both days we were there!
Location was easy and close to most things in town. The single stall toilets and showers were okay. The rooms were really crowded. It's also really close to a couple of bars/clubs, so there was extremely loud music playing until around 2am.
I was competing at a cycling event and backpackers was very close to everywhere I needed to go. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was functional and very adequate. I think patrons should be advised however that it is an extremely noisy location. The noise level at night was unacceptable and made sleep impossible. It is totally unsuitable as a place to stay for anyone who does not want to party. The backpackers is located in a street full of bars and nightclubs and the extremely loud music doesn't stop until 3am and thereafter you are continually disturbed by returning partygoers.
The manager was very friendly and helpful, the bathroom was great but the bedroom very basic. Carrying our luggage up to the top floor is a little arduous and as there is no parking we had to park at the police station to secure our car and contents.
Clean, cosy and comfortable. Great location in 1 minutes walk from lake shore. Breakfast is available for 5 NZD only. Very noisy at night, because there's night club in the same building. Unless you want to join the party, sleeping at night will be an issue.
Good, clean rooms exactly what you would expect in a backpackers, Staff didnt interact much but were efficent. Kitchen was quite messy could of badly done with a clean but all essentials were present Very nosiy at night due to its central location, ie loud music and loud cars.
