Feels like just legends working there, small and cozy hostel, not this type of new fancy hostels, but much more comfortable. Scenery walks close by, people socialize pretty fast :)
Very friendly and helpful staff, greatly appreciated. Good to have a family room.
Very, very noisy from surrounding bars and people hanging out in the social area directly outside our room. Kitchen pretty dirty.
The guy working there was pleasant and helpful. I did get a refund of one night after I left early.
Currently the hostel is basically a building site with loads of building materials in the hallways and plaster dust all over the common areas. The rooms are overcrowded with no space for your bags, there are no lockers, it's right over a late opening and noisy pub and the whole place is just looking old and worn out. Worryingly a fire escape had a lot of things stored in it also.
It was a short walk of less than 5 minutes to the Bus stop where I needed to leave from & where I arrived at which was handy but also conveniently located to the venue I spent most of my time in New Plymouth at (New Plymouth Club). Chris on Reception when I arrived was VERY friendly & helpful, TOP bloke! Thanks man :)
For some reason I had thought there may be several Ladies as well as Men's individual Toilets & Showers but one Bathroom next to the room for the use of 5 people seemed to be okay so no real concerns.
Everything ,staff are helpful ,location near to everything
