Just opened in June 2002, this is a very modern, spacious, and clean hostel with a perfect location - just off Queen Street and three minutes walk from Sky City.
The hostel has great facilities including kitchens, a travel centre, laundry, and internet. I had a double room (58 nzd for two) with air-conditioning.
Below the hostel is the Globe Bar, a favorite among students and backpackers - their occasional foam parties are great fun!
I enjoyed staying there although I have met travelers who felt that the size and sterile nature of the hostel resulted in it being a little impersonal.
