    The hostel is much bigger than it first appears, and has plenty of communal areas to relax and make food. We even made use of the BBQ (although I'm pretty sure the hosts thought we were crazy Brits for grilling in the middle of winter!) We were able to do laundry and the free wifi was excellent, and made it easy for us to plan our trip. Free parking too!

    The dorm room was pretty cold, even with the small wall heater on. Extra blankets were provided but they were pretty thin.

    Location. Next to a great restaurant.

    Room was very cold. Needs insulation and warmer blankets. One of the two showershad no cold water going in so was too hot.

    The location, it was close enough to the city and to Abel Tasman. There is a pool table and some couches in the lounge area.

    Kitchen was very dirty (nasty baking trays to store the silverware, dirty utensils...). We had to throw away our food because there were a lot of mice that ate it overnight. We found many feces in our food and on the floor. Apparently there are lockers outside the kitchen but the staff never once told us it was for food storage. Reception was never open during the opening hours. The room was very cold and the heater didn't work well enough to warm up the room. The mattress is old and extremely uncomfortable. The hot shower is limited to 5 or 7 minutes (we found different documents that said 5 or 7, we didn't check which one was true). This is not a good value for money. We have to agree with the past negative reviews however it seems like the staff always finds a way to contest these reviews.

    Off street parking. Reasonably handy to town. Quiet.

    A mixed dorm room with workers who were up very early. A musty room with a bed that hadn't been stripped prior. The kitchen was not very clean.
