                            2.4

                            Horrible. The worst hostel I have ever seen. The room was literally a garage without even a door separating the toilet from the bedroom.

                          • Older travelers
                            7.4

                            Very well equipped and easy to cater for ourselves.

                            Smokers ashtrays at our apartment door was off putting.

                            7.0

                            It was warm and comfortable

                            It was a little run down but you get what you pay for.

                            2.8

                            I feel the room was poor value for money. I expected a standard motel unit - this was inferior. It was old, cold, noisy.

                            7.4

                            It was convenient for one night travelling between Christchurch and Dunedin. The room was comfortable with reasonable facilities.
