The shared bathroom situation was very workable—special thanks to the staff for the cozy bathrobes provided!

My friend and I stayed here and for the price I thought it would have been better for the money, it was very no thrills to be honest, I was expecting much much more bang for your buck. It was clean however, beds fairly hard but ok stay.

The host who stays on the property was very warm and pleasant. Although very close to CBD, the property is tucked away in a quiet side street. A 5 minute walking distance is...

Very nice place to stay. Comfortable. Excellent people running it. Thank you so much for a great stay. Would happily book another stay next time I come to NZ. Highly recommended if you are ok with sharing the bathroom with other two rooms of civilized people from all over the world. No complaints. Just great.
