Was so welcoming and the fact that it is an old jail turned hotel is amazing
Loved the architecture and history. Single room was just enough. Clean and tidy.
Cool historical experience, fun place to stay for a night or two. Provided extra blankets and hot water bottles, also had powerpoint and reading lights by the beds which I appreciate- have found this to be a rare commodity in NZ hostels. Dorm room was quite comfortable and spacious.
Location isn't ideal, but the experience makes it worthwhile. Facilities are what would be expected when staying in a converted historical building.
The vibe and the fact it's an old prison
The bad bad BO smell in the lounge area, it was sickening
Great experience in an historical place. Super clean, great service and good environment.
