The staff are really friendly (always a lovely smile) and helpful. The location was unbeatable--close to supermarket, public transport, food/hangout places, so near the waterfront too... we loved it. It was a little noisy on a Saturday night (the hostel is near party places), but fine on Sunday night. The room was really small, but well thought-out (many hooks to hang up clothing, many power outlets). Overall, we highly recommend this place!!

YHA is close to CBD, good place to stay for people who plan take a ferry to Sauth Island. There is a cup to terminal in the morning. Good location for good money
