  • The staff is super friendly and there was a free mini snack, cool! The showers were atrociously dirty, stuffy and dingy though.

  • we found a cockroach in our room, which wasnt nice. the cleaning guy was really nice talking to, and he did a good job. we stayed in a three bed room, and one of the beds were broken, but it was okay for 2 nights. there was a lot of noise from the street/bar and from the other rooms. every room shared two heaters whit other rooms, which results in a hole in the wall to the other rooms = no privacy, if you wanted to, you could look into the next room.

  • Roommates came in hammed in the middle of the night. Bunk bed felt like it was gonna fall over. Bathroom was disgustingly dirty. Cramped, dark and dirty. But it was cheap so I can complain that much.

  • I stayed here before starting Kiwi Experience and although the staff were really friendly the hostel itself is need of a serious overhaul. The 4 bed room I was in was cold with a non-functioning heater and a terrible window. I heard everything from the bar below and the bed was pretty uncomfy. Having stayed in other hostels now around NZ, I wouldn't recommend this one.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
